I had worked on the edit of the Seychelles kayaking video until the early hours of Wednesday morning. (More tomorrow).
So when Liz insisted we go ski-ing it didn't feel too much like bunking off work.
Liz has downhill skied once before, before we met ten years ago. Apart from a day on the slopes, it would be my first skiing in twenty five years.
However, the snow in Scotland is excellent (we were told). So we drove to Glencoe and had a superb half-day on the mountain. No queues, lovely weather and superb scenery.
We'll go again. But prhaps not wait another 25 years. If only we could guarantee such snow ever year.
