This week, most schools are closed for the traditional February skiing vacation (only in Switzerland, eh?) and the kids who did not get to go off to ski resorts took full advantage of today's weather: skis, snowboards and sleds zoomed past me as I shuffled slowly uphill, trying to reacquaint myself with walking in snow. Still, I am not bothered - this is winter's last hurrah, and it will surely pass. Now to concentrate on staying warm... and upright!
