I'm writing this entry now at 10:30pm because if I don't I never will!! We have been so busy, I don't think we've stopped from the beginning of February, or even before that!! February half term was so busy! It was more crazy than Christmas. I felt like a dish washing machine! Leo and I stayed in the entire week to help Gill cook and I became an expert at baking cakes!

Both seemed to have the slopes we would enjoy the most and Laura had already gone hiking several times in Chamrousse and had long since wanted to ski it as well.
