    It does all that & then some Bdenny.

    Often makes me wonder why it took me so long to get around to living here.

    New arrivals is the reason why MrsH couldn't book to come with me and MissH in January as a girl needs her mum to be with her when she is expecting her first and our oldest is expecting - on family ski day. At first I though oh well no problem we shall see the infant when we get home but pretty soon that wasn't an attractive idea so the December trip means we shall have our cake and eat it too (December snow permitting). We saw the little one on a ultrasound DVD on the weekend, its little heartbeat pumping away and arms and legs kicking. Heading to being a grandpa and turning the age on the crew list later this week there's no denying that I'm really moving into the stereotypical SP demographic nowadays.

    Some accident TP, I think there was a bit of planning involved! [​IMG]

    This afternoon we went for a wander around the village, and had a look in a few of the ski shops.

    Gareth picks up some beautiful purple skis and asks rather loudly, "hey Nic, what about these?" Me "but I don't ski Gareth!" his response "it doesn't matter, they match your ski jacket and it is all about looks!" [​IMG] We got a few laughs from the staff [​IMG]

    every time we visit the snowies, we grab a copy of the local newspaper called the Snowy Times, its sort of a tradition we have running.

    This current edition has a full page article on SP and a full page advert promoting SP.

    I'm watching this with a lot of interest cos I am in the same boat. How is it a cost to them? We bought the ticket. We are now giving them the opportunity to re-sell those seats and make more money.

    May I ask who you went through for the car hire? We are still trying to decide.
