So a few days ago twas me birthday and we had a very nice day indeed. Started off the previous evening in Le Delice with Fred, Katy, Chris, Andy et al and then after a brief snooze continued with full english breakfast chez Katy and Fred.

After we had something to eat, there was a general concensus (due to hangovers!) to leave the skiing/snowboarding til the next day. Instead we decided to have a barbeque at the farm where Andy and I live with Chris, Pierro and Mark the Sepo. Chris did sterling work preparing the food and I cooked it on our funky big barbeque.

All in all it was a really nice day. Really memorable for the warmth of the friends and general relaxing amusements. We all piled into the house and watched a dvd when Sarah joined us - Bear Grylls survival, my and Andy's current favourite, then nipped down Le Delice for a drink.
I even managed to speak to all the family which was great and got contacted by a few old friends in the valley. Awesome stuff.
