Morning, how are you all? What you been up to?
Back from my holiday with mixed feelings. I simply love skiing and hate to leave such stunning scenery after having so much fun on the slopes, but I need to rest my achy legs - this fifty year old is not used to such an exhausting activity.

Wish me luck for the next few days for after a good holiday comes plenty of washing and ironing!

Bye for now. X
