17/01/16 – Snow is here!

Ooo I love snow, it’s even more special when it’s in your own back garden! We woke up to an inch or so of snow this morning and it automatically made eveything look so lovely.

We didn’t do much today until around 9pm when we suddenly decided to sort the whole house out, so it ended up being quite productive! I finally had my long awaited lie in, we’re both pretty relaxed today.

01/01/16 – Sliding into 2016!

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had a fantastic night. I was definitely fuzzy headed through a majority of today.. But we made it out there again, even with my dodgy wrist – yay! I successfully made it down the green run, so I’m super chuffed at my gradual progress!

30/12/15 – Swiss Sunset — Dec 30, 2015

30/12/15 – Swiss Sunset

Our first full day in Switzerland, and my first ever time snowboarding in real snow! We started on the small slopes today.. being overtaken by kids with smaller skis than my feet.. but I definitely have made progress! Slow and steady, and trying to overtake a toddler or too.

At sunset Nic and I went for a walk around to capture the sunset – by far one of the most beautiful places I’ve been.

12/12/15 – Snow shopping! — Dec 12, 2015

12/12/15 – Snow shopping!

Organising day today – we’ve finally finished the study! With one last trip to IKEA (our fourth trip this year) it’s all completed.. So we’re both happy bunnies!

We also went shopping for snow boarding supplies as we’re running out of time before we head home for Christmas.. I did so well and got pretty much everything I need! Currently though Nic will be sliding down the Swiss Alps in just his boxers..

11/12/15 – Swiss Alps Prep! — Dec 11, 2015

11/12/15 – Swiss Alps Prep!

Nic and I both booked today off so we could have our own long Christmassy weekend together. We went for a lush cooked breakfast at Regency Cafe in Victoria, then snowboarding in The Snow Centre in Hemel Hempsted!

It was my first time so Nic booked me a three hour beginner lesson as a present. It was so much fun! I didn’t know it was possible but I’m now even more excited for our holiday to Switzerland after Christmas!!

03/12/15 – Edinbrrrrr!

Much colder today in Edinburgh, I even walked through a snow shower on the way to the airport! Snooooow!! Love it!

It was another full day of testing but it was incredibly interesting and went past very quick. Now just waiting to take off, to go back to London!
