Our kids have always been very reluctant to join clubs but when they do finally agree they discover that they really enjoy it. For many parents it’s the other way round of course where there seems to be a club on every night I have found that heavy persuasion techniques work, sometimes I just tell them they are going! As they are getting bigger they are more likely to say yes but they do carefully consider all the implications of doing a new thing.

I know the snow has only really hit the rest of the UK in the last few weeks but we have had pretty full on conditions right through January and February. The skiing opened on New Years Day and when the weather has allowed it’s been open every day since. Unusually though the snow has been down to valley level nearly constantly during that time and that has made trying to get to work and school very tricky. Some days of course it has been so bad the schools have been shut and that makes everyone’s life easy but on many days we have a very difficult mile and half to get to the main road.

We live on the valley floor, at an altitude of 720m.The peaks that surround us are considerably higher (the Grand pic de Belledonne which looms large behind our house tops out at 2977m), meaning that often while we are having rain in the valley, snow is falling higher up.
