Half-term Havoc

Tuesday, February 24, 2009

Last saturday around one million Brits invaded France. Crying children littered the slopes and injured bodies were carted away in blood-wagons. You could be forgiven for thinking so, but there's no war here - just Mid-term holidays.

Its absolute chaos, which makes us glad we're at one of the quieter resorts. Some of the fashion atrocities provide endless entertainment. They vary from the euro-modern-shiny-and-tight, to retina-hurting-one-peice's. Meanwhile ESF instructors efficiently organise their children into giant piste-destroying-snakes.

Unfortunately France has fairly relaxed laws about selling fireworks, so walking home from work usually involves some little bugger throwing a lit firecracker at you.

The huge influx of holiday-makers into the resort, resulted in every chalet booked, and my role changing yet again. This week been, I officially became Dani's kitchen slave (The title is actually Chalet Host). Dani was again cheffing, and we were looking after a group of 7 who were staying in Chalet Les Aunes. We were lucky that our guests were lovely people and easy to look after. Dani produced some incredible looking food. Every night I was amazed by the food that she put together.

Here are some photos of the Chalet we were working in. Things are quietening down again, so I think we're back into normal roles again. We're working on some video to put on the blog, and we must apologise to the lack of updates! We'll make a bigger effort.

Thanks for the update. It might not seem like it but heaps of people read your blog who don't leave comments. (I am one of them.)

Great Best-Job-In-The-Wold vid as well, hehe. I thought you already had the best job in the world!
