Sick as a sick thing. Why do people say dog, or parrot? I feel more like a prickly pear with arms and legs made out of plasticine.
Ack, well, salsa didn’t happen last week as we got our wires crossed; I thought she was driving, she thought I was driving, we were both sat at home all dressed up and waiting impatiently until it was too late!! Oh well.
I went on my own on Tuesday – darn, this week has been hectic – because K couldn’t come and I won’t be able to go for the next 6 weeks due to commencement of ARCHERY COURSE! Hurrah! Really looking forward to it. On Wednesday night we had our first fencing class… hmm… what to say about that? We both selected the sabre because it’s an edged weapon, i.e. you can score points with the side of the blade, not just the tip like with a foil or epee. That translates to whacking with gusto rather than nancying about poking your opponent. It was brilliant ! I’m not going to be as good as P; his reflexes are a lot faster and he’s bigger and taller of course. I loved it though, and I loved watching him fight. So sexy!
Back from France, settled back into work and everything, and feeling like I’ve never been away! Cats being v. clingy, obviously they missed us. Snowboarding improved a good deal although P is certainly keeping well ahead of me and did black runs and all sorts. I stuck to nice easy ones accessible by cable car – Courchevel is magnificently served when it comes to lifts, the pistes are broad and we were blessed with excellent snow. The resort was a bit pricey but much nicer than Tignes; rather like an expensive version of Cervinia.
In the evenings I managed to get some work done on the Bloomin’ Epic, and since I came back I’ve done a fair amount of research so am feeling quite positive on that front. Also found some time last night to play Warrior Kings – no, not a kinky bedroom role-play, but a new real time strat game. It’s a bit pants but OK.
Off to salsa tonight with K, rather stiff from boarding and lousy hotel bed so that’ll be fun. I.e. I will probably fall over. Oh well. TTFN
