Why aren't there more hours in the day? I've been meaning to get these photos posted for so long but never seemed to be able to grasp the time. These will have to do, and as for words .. gah, there's that lack of time again. Life is turning hectic once more. We are on the move yet again in a matter of months only this time, I'm hoping, to a house we can hopefully call a home. A semi nomadic lifestyle is not good for children, it seems. And as if that isn't enough, my boy takes his big test in a couple of days and there's a special birthday coming up soon, too. Well, you can't say life's boring!

There was a recent fresh dumping of snow up in the Vancouver mountains, resurrecting a ski season we had thought to be all but over. Prices are low now, so we headed up to Cypress Mountain for an afternoon on the snow. It was good to get back up above the clouds once again and it also made me realise I still had Spring Break photos of our trip to Whistler to post.

Whistler. What a place. Not too many photos for you I hope, and fewer words suffice to say we had a fantastic week up there. The scale of it all is astonishing and we were so lucky to see it in all its sun-rayed glory. We returned home feeling exercised, energised, exhilarated, nourished and completely and utterly blessed to have such a magical place on our doorstep. Oh, and totally exhausted too! Whistler Blackcomb .. what a place indeed!

Happy week to you .. come rain or come shine!

  9. Hi Kate, it seems like you have moved to just the right place for you all! Whistler does seem like the most idyllic spot for a family of snowbunnies. I don't think I've ever seen so many pairs of skis in one spot!


There's nothing like a comment to stop me feeling like I'm talking to myself. If you leave one here I'll pop one back here too, so don't forget to come back and continue the conversation ..
