I wish I could hug and wave. If I could I would, today, hug my daughter, Abi, and wave her farewell as she heads off to Meribel, Les Trois Vallees, France, to spend six months as a resort rep and ski guide for Total Ski, part of Ski Espirit.
I have always hoped that at least one of my children would do this since we are, or were, as a family very keen skiers. We took both kids skiing every year since they were three years old. consequently they are both pretty good skiers. Abi is understandably excited, she just came and showed me her new snuggle suite in dark blue covered in red stars.
The company policy is that if an employee returns home before the end of season, for any reason, they are terminated. My job is to stay well at least until the end of April.
I really want her to enjoy this so I will do my best.
