9:02 AM - Coming soon.......

On Saturday morning I finished my film! So photos of the house on their way - sometime in the next 48 hours!

On Saturday evening we celebrated the insulation with a meal at the Inn which is our favourite local eatery that's been closed through January until now. How NICE to be back eating prawn pizza and veal canneloni and someone else does the dishes.

Ski work was good this weekend. Lots of lessons. Why do kids lie? At the end of my morning lesson, a dad asked his boy, "Did you say thank you to your teacher?" "Yeeeaaaaas" he replies, as I walk behind him knowing full well he didn't. Still, in his own little way he did thank me when we got to the top of the last lift-ride to shouts of, "Can we go down again!??" and "Awwwwwwwww" when I had to say, "Nope, time's up". In the afternoon I taught a mum and her 15 year old ginger teenage boy who hid himself behind a green balaclava all through the 2 hour lesson. I found it really hard to strike up a conversation with someone who was all green-knit and freckles but he had a thirst for speed, even if he wasn't going to let the wind run through his hair.

To top it all off we sat in the tub till the sun went down drinking beer and sherry and admiring the new disco lights which Hubby fitted. We decided we prefer the white light but can't go back to it since Hubby stood on the bulb. Oops.

Happy valentines day everyone. We all got a box of chocolates from the boss today. I've eaten half already. They're Canadian chocolates so you need the box to tell you what flavour it's supposed to be - they all taste like sugar to me (which is the top ingredient instead of milk or cocoa).

My only other valentines day trauma was breaking my car again this morning. When I went to turn the hot air on to my chilly fingers I smashed the dial on the heater. Honestly, I don't know my own strength or maybe Brazilian VW plastic just isn't up to indestructible German standards.............Sigh.
