... and we eventually won back my soggy washing.
A productive day at work, got lots of my jobs crossed off the list-hurrah! Yummy staff dinner from the No 14 kitchen of creamy mushroom pasta-sounds a bit dull? it really wasn't!
Massaging my boss tomorrow, hope he still thinks I'm worth it!
Snow is coming down like snowbodies business. Getting a good base on the pistes. . .apparantly:)
... piste so not too shabby for a first day out. Decided (ok legs demanded) to call it a day at 1pm. Took the bus home from Le Rouge back home.
Sadly I wasn't brave enought to take my camera out today so there are no amazing piccies to accompany this-sorry folks! but I'm sure there will be plenty more opportunites.

After finishing our drinks in the lounge the team head out for a few drinks on the town. I'm entirely sure that Verbier nightlife is quite me. Very different to La Ros vibe of fun and friendly. I need to do a bit more expolring to find my fit I think.
... surface it's a lovely chalet but on closer inspection there are sooo many things broken & faulty. Lots of stains & marks all over the walls and carpets, it really does look quite shabby and not in good condition at all. We have a broken ceramic hob & an oven that on has 1 knob when we need 3. Going to take ALOT of work to make look good. Did an inventory for absolutely anything removeable, and Etat Des Lieux (conditions report) and a risk ...
