Add this all to the herd of elephants that have apparently moved in above me and the Dutch drinking songs being sung at 1am this morning. Half term is here.

To be fair to the tourists that are abandoning cars all over Chatel at the moment, it was -18 degrees this morning and La Smart car only just started, which is an improvement on last week when the temperatures dipped into the minus twenties. At -25 degrees, it was completely not interested and had to be jump started every day.
Winters here are brutal on cars. Reliability and function are paramount in choosing a car to live with all year round. It’s due to snow next week too which will be very interesting because the village is salting the roads much less than in previous years which will mean epic amounts of faffing about which snowchains.
I nipped down to Monthey yesterday and picked myself up a thin down jacket which hopefully is going to keep me warmer and not make me look too fat, as well as investing in two oversized wooly snoods at H&M for going to the pub use.
Work starts in earnest tomorrow and the ski school is stacked out with work for the next 3 weeks. We’ve had to draft in extra instructors to cope with the demand which is a change from last year when we were all scrapping for work.
I thought I’d get this blog in early because the chances are that I won’t be able to for the next few weeks. See you in March. x
