... Saturday brought warnings of apocalyptic snow. It snowed all night and all day and whilst it wasn’t as much as we had 2 years ago, it dumped more in less time – about 1½ metres at our level. The family had to leave the hire cars in Bagneres and Stefan brought them back in the Landrover just before the main road was closed and whilst we could still get down the drive.

... 8211; it’s definitely a Poppy and not a Dennis! – it’s been a bit like a zoo here, especially at Christmas with the kids making such a fuss of the animals. She has grown so much and appears to rule the roost. Clyde has taken her in his stride, perhaps because she was so small when she arrived.

His best ride to date!
All in all we have had a brilliant few days, and now we are off to do some work!!
