|Gorgeous Snow. Stylish People That Are Completely Unknown To Me But Match The Colour Scheme Beautifully.|
Falls Creek was a great place for a family holiday. It was very friendly and had a bit of a country town vibe that I loved. We had a couple of nights at The Falls Creek Hotel which was excellent and then shared an apartment with some friends from Tasmania. The children all ran riot and had a fantastic time. Farmgirl christened them "The Tassies".

Needless to say both The Farmkids can now ski a million times better than me. I had the disconcerting experience of riding the lift with an instructor whilst Farmgirl and her ski school class were in the terrain park learning to do jumps. I spotted her and was trying not to panic - the instructor quickly suggested I just look the other way! Farmboy also scared the pants off The Farmer when he just pointed his skis downhill on a blue run and went straight down without turning at all. Speed control obviously not being his strong point..... Fortunately he got close to the bottom and chose to sit down. Which was lucky as his snowboarder Dad couldn't get up enough speed to catch him. (And The Farmer is pretty handy on a snowboard.)
I found the landscape very beautiful - I have mainly spent time in the snow overseas and so I really loved the fact that there was snow and gumtrees.

To be honest I am still a bit sad to be home again - a week didn't seem to be long enough. Although neither my knees or my wallet could have gone much longer I think!
So - time to get back to reality. I have got stuck into my garden which seemed to have gone wild in just a week plus have spent what seems like hours literally wading through a mountain of washing.
Better get back to it all - will try and update with some farm news soon. Lots happening in the garden and my quarters are almost finished.
(Also - on the off chance my lovely friend Louise, who I bumped into after many years but had to run off as Farmboy was sick, is reading this - I did try and find you again! Email me. x)
