It has been a while since I last wrote anything, still miss our Roxy but we have plenty to remember about her, the winter is drawing to a close and the snow is disappearing although there is still a fair bit up in the mountains and we are expecting some more this week but only at altitude.
We have had some very good days snowboarding, the weather was amazing and the conditions perfect but as usual you had to be lucky to get the right snow and a bit of the old currant bun, here are a few of pictures from those days, in a couple of them you can see that we were just above the clouds and down below they had a not so good day, someone has to have it though…..
The sky is such an amazing colour on days like that and no Photoshop either.
We have been busy at home, our ewes produced two lovely lambs and they are doing really well, this year we are getting new chickens so they are gradually being thinned out, the garden is looking ok but it is too early to think of doing much as they are still forecasting cold spells and possibly a bit more snow, it gives us a chance to do the other jobs like fencing and paths etc plus this year we need to re-treat the timber on the outside of the chalet so we are ordering materials and scaffolding etc, should keep us out of mischief for about a month in April – May time.
We have been re-doing a website for one of our neighbours which has proved to be reasonably interesting, I sometimes wonder how people make money out of the web design business but I think now that quite a few of them just bodge it and hope for the best, we have definitely learnt a lot this time.
Thats it from me, here are pictures of our latest additions, they are called Ram and Bo……
