Blue Cow Mountain

Winter has finally come. There has been moments recently when many of us thought that we would never see it but in just the nick of time the temperature dropped.

The nick of time because 50 girls from school had signed up for the ski trip. With just a week to go I was wondering what our fearless leader had planned to do with them as there was no snow. Then it got cold and the snow came. Lots of snow, in fact so that we were all able to have a great time without worrying about skiing over grass and rocks.

The first couple of days were glorious sunshine days with most of us coming in with mild sunburn, despite the sunscreen. By Wednesday the weather broke again and the wind and the snow came back. It didn't bother me too much because the old knees had given in by then and I wasn't fit for too much skiing. Also, the girl behind the bar at the bistro had figured out how to do a hot chocolate with butterscotch schnapps - yum!
