winter's snowy touch

the hills are white and crispy here, ready for the ski season which officially starts in 3 weeks time. when the sun's out the days are gorgeous and pretty mild, but the inside of our lodge remains a freezer regardless and we now have the fire stoked up every day. this week I went to a craft workshop and made butterflies, angels and even a miniature sheep out of wool!! I was younger than everone else there by at least 20 years but I haven't laughed so much in ages, aided not in the least by Sigrid, who ran the workshop, and her creative translation of bavarain german into kiwi. I have now been requested to make more miniature sheep for Ian (skydiving instructor) and Seb's wedding in August - they're Welsh...
