February already?! How time flies when…

Goodness, the weeks are racing by, particularly now we’ve been able to return to in person work, head across the bay and get the work year going – a happy new, new year?

Yesterday, looking across the bay

We’ve been busy the past few days, catching up with friends and colleagues, and getting on with stalled projects. In amongst all the fun and being busy, we arrived at our 25th wedding anniversary – another goodness, where has the time gone?!

25? Goodness!

We’re off to the mountains this weekend, a little celebration and a chance to play in the snow. (Please let there be good snow…)

Old photo – let there be this much snow!

A brief post this week as we turn our little place upside down trying to find snow gear we haven’t made much use of the past few years. I was going to write something about the ups and downs of mountain slopes and the ups and downs of a (happy) relationship, but that’s a slippery slope and I’m likely to fall down…

Slippery slopes

Instead, I’ll head off now, to some real slippery slopes, to go and fall over and get up again as we rediscover our snow feet and aim to enjoy an alpine weekend.

More to follow. More of what? Well, of course I mean another 25 years happy years! Oh, ok, and perhaps an island snow post next week.

“I’ve always got my snow feet!”

Thanks for reading, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

I am a would be outdoorsman - that is if I had more time, skills and knowledge. When I can, I love being outdoors, just camping, hiking, snowboarding, xc skiing, snowshoeing, paddling a canoe or trying something new. What I lack in ability, I make up for in enthusiasm and having a go. I'd never really survive for long out there in the wild, but I enjoy pretending I could if I had to...

  1. Wonderful post again, pc, filled with your joy for the reunion with friends and colleagues; and your great enthusiasm for snow play. And how truly fortunate that you and Mrs. pc have a momentous celebration of fun and love and life together to celebrate this weekend. Congratulations. Have fun you two!


  2. Happy Anniversary!! Love seeing the Canadian winter scenes again and hope it was a very snowy alpine weekend! Wonderful to read the community is returning to normal. Looking forward to reading about the return to winter and if the years on the coast had you quickly missing the beach.🙂


    1. Thank you! We had a wintry weekend with plenty of snow up island, and it was great to be playing in the snow!
      It’s all a bit one foot forward, two steps back on the community front, with lots of positive tests being registered, but a high vaccination rate seems to be keeping the worst outcomes at bay, touch wood…
      So, I’ve always rated Frank Lampard as a manager (I haven’t) and I’m delighted with the result against Brentford on Saturday! Now to do it again tomorrow against Newcastle.
      Watched the first two episodes of Reacher, thought it was great, and very relieved it was so good. Hopefully it’ll do well and get renewed…
      Enjoy your week!
