Happy Birthday!!!

I’d like to start with a big Happy Birthday to my lovely wife Gill as well as my God-Son Oscar! Have a brilliant day the two of you!

Today’s update will be late as I’m working all day followed by Karen and Andreas’ gig and then pizza at Flash Pizza!

Well, what a day that turned out to be! On the skiing front we had some great snow up on the Pisaillas Glacier and had better luck with the vis today although there were moments when the fog rolled in which is always unnerving. Andreas skied in Tignes and had some great skiing before being put off by a nasty foggy patch in the Sache. I had a great afternoon with Tim and Gill and we found a sunny sector in Tignes and did three rotation off the Tichot skiing the closed racing piste, which was smooth and resembled perfect spring snow.

Karen and Andreas’ gig at the Danois tonight was their best yet and it’s quite incredible how they keep raising their ‘personal bar’. Karen is a seasoned pro but she’s getting better with each gig and is really pouring herself into it, and Andreas’ guitar solos were brilliant. They’ve gelled beautifully together and it’s evident that they’re really enjoying playing together and the had the place rocking tonight. Bravo and I’m looking forward to Gill and Millie being there next week!

I’m off to bed as it’s late but stay tuned for more news tomorrow!
