I am so so so bored of this job! The Health and Safety lady just told me off for the way i use my keyboard and said I was in danger of getting repetitive strain injury, so I took great delight in telling her that there was no danger of that because in 3 weeks i would be leaving and for the next five months shall not even be spending an hour a week in front of a bloody computer let alone 37!!!!!

I am really dis-organised - have got everything but its just spread all over the house so now face the mission of collecting it all together and then trying to pack it all!!! This year was determined to be sensible as took loads of crap last year i never wore/used but looks like I have accumulated even more this time around!
Everyone keep there eye out for me on the coach..........
I will be the one wearing 20 layers of clothing and my ski boots because they won't fit in any of my bags!

i would wait til you get to your resort to buy boots/skis/boards etc. You should get a discount and you will have more chance try stuff out. Plus it saves you having to lug it all there - you just have to worry about bringing it all back!!!

its alright for you lot. i have to ski during training so have to get most stuff before i go. who wanted to be a ski host anyway. ha ha. can't wait yey.

Jemman: you said you wanted boots. well profeet in putney do boots but there expensive, or you have the usual place.

You will get boots and skis form the company but to be honest you would be better buying your own, Did know a few people last season who blagged skis from the local hire shop for most or all of the season. also the shops are easy going on letting you 'test' skiis out if you say you might be interested in buying - I had a pair last season for about two weeks - they knew where i lived so just let me take them for as long as i pretty much wanted.
