We have had a weekend of rain down here at 1000m but it’s nice to see it’s been a bit colder up top. The Fiz this afternoon looked quite like an iced cake and reminded us of this picture from the Versoix ice storm of 2011.
Anyway, despite the rain, we took Bruno for a nice walk above the house – not an epic day out but enjoyable all the same!
A few months ago we welcomed the arrival of a beautiful little Lagotto Romagnolo puppy. He is an Italian truffle finding water dog, and is most definitely brown in colour (most of the time). There was therefore no competition for names, he was quickly dubbed “Bruno” – formal title Mr. Broon!
Here are some photos showing how quickly he is growing up.
Well, yet another mid-winter celebration has gone by in a blur! We were back in the Alps this year with lots of family in town so there was much anticipation of cruising the pistes with the wind in our wigs.
Unfortunately the sunshine ruined any dreams of corduroy pistes, but plenty of Brussels sprouts made sure the wind was present – and wigs were definitely out in force as you can see below. So with lots of walking, cycling, running, eating and partying – a great time was had by all!
Here’s to lots more good times throughout 2016!
