Holidays are over, washing loaded and dried, packed for and got #boardingboy back to school and full on work day tomorrow.

Shall we talk about skiing?? Holiday or not? I mean what with the painful boots and the awkward ski carry and the hairy scary moments getting up and then down the mountain - I found myself questioning if it is indeed a “holiday”? But then....all it takes is one good run, on perfect snow, hips sashaying side to side and the sun shining, slopes glistening and you get it - living on a prayer! Skiing is literally all about the peaks and troughs, one turn after another. I 💯 lost my nerve a few times and would just carry on going across the mountain, too anxious to make the turn. But eventually I’d come to a standstill and nothing for it but to go for it, make the move, and it always worked out. I’m sure it doesn’t take a genius to work out the metaphor I’m going for here? 😉 In other observations, we found a new rosé (quite a feat seeing as we holiday in Provence every year and as you know are BIG fans of @mirabeauwine). @hamptonwater was being served @lafoliedouce.vt - and it’s none other than Jon Bon Jovi’s rosé. It’s made in the Languedoc and has been labelled as one of the top 100 wines in the world. We liked it, enough to have a second - and it gave me my snow legs to get back down the mountain after lunch singing “ohhhhh we’re half way there, whoooo oooh we’re living on a prayer.” ⛷ ❄️ ☀️ 🏔 #seewhatIdidthere 😎
