Whoop! There goes gravidy

Belated holiday news & Merry Christmas to all! My holiday was ok, the boarding was good considering the time of year but there were a few too many stones & rocks around to warrant destroying the base of one of my newer babies so had to resort to using the old faithful for the majority of the week. Sadly I didn’t get to do as much boarding or boozing as I usually would due to being ill the whole week :( I figured I’d be better after a couple of days away but I don’t think my tactics of immediate-alcohol-indulgence-on-improvement-in-condition did me much good at all. On 2 days I only did 2 runs then came home, only did an hour and a half another day, and the conditions were getting pretty hard by the end of the week which didn’t really inspire me to go and hurl myself around. In fact on the last day I nearly lost it on a track (which never happens) due to feeling completely out of it, so thought I better head home before breaking my azz on some ice! There was a lot not open, which is fair enough given that it was the second operating week of the season (and they wanted to save some stuff for the Christmas crowds), but that meant the runs that were open were getting rocky and icy. Grrr. I managed to get one semi powder run in on the first day, but that killed me due to my general fatigue! Can’t say I was too fussed about our chalet (or the resort, or the staff in general…) either, so all in all, well, I’ve had better trips… Ho hum.

On coming home, still ill but a relief to have some home comforts. How bad does it suck being debilitated in a foreign country?? (hugs Tiff!) I was off work Monday and Tuesday this week but thought I’d better show my face on Wednesday before attending the Christmas party today, which starts in approximately 1 hour :) so, just enough time to do a bit of blogging from work?? Hehe.

More soon…

    I’m most grateful for your sympathy, Jon, but I must inform you that I had *quite* the adventure myself crutching around Mechelen to Christmas-shop and crutching rude Christmas crowds out of my way this fine evening! Yes indeedy!

    Ok, so being a cripple here does kinda suck… but you take care snowboarding lest you nearly get yourself killed for like the third(?) time. ;)
