25th April – Final Staff Party

So, my original plan was to leave for Seattle on the 23rd and enjoy a few days in the nearby US town before heading down the East Coast. However, not long after I booked everything in, I got the announcement … Continue reading

8th March – Down for the Count

(Needless to say, all of the future posts up until June were written in May once I’d recovered enough to be capable of staring at a computer screen for more than 5 minutes at a time.  This has not been … Continue reading

7th March – Three, Two, One, IMPACT

Today, I learned that determination and confidence can come back and bite you if you decide to push past your limits. Which is frustrating, because I was doing really well with my skiing up until this point. I have been … Continue reading
