USA Trip

Just back from a business trip to USA which involved five flights in eight days visiting New Jersey, Dallas, Kansas City and Los Angeles.

Photo is from a Dallas tour on a segway. It was a bit like riding a horse in that you pull up/back to stop and lean forward to go forward. Great fun.

Skiing

Had a great time skiing with family Ellis over new year. Managed to ski each day and had the best snow for many years.

Having hated skiing with a passion two years ago, Louise managed very well in ski school even going so far as to say that she enjoyed it there more than home - quite a statement from a confirmed home girl.

Louise, Emay and Frankie got on tremendously and they all loved sledging down the slope, often having scarily close encounters with fixed solid objects at the bottom of it.
