Some fresh mountain air in Switzerland

After my accidents over the Christmas period which resulted in me getting whiplash and damage to the sacro-iliac area of the back, I was looking forward to a long weekend with Ross’s Queens boys (as in old college mates, for the avoidance of doubt) in our chalet in Champery.

A visit to the osteopath the day before we left deals a bitter blow as I am told not to ski – if I want to be fit and well for our trip to Niseko in Japan in three weeks. So I am resigned to being chief cook and bottle washer. No matter – the first day is a white out and I am not bothered, but the second – oh my! – fresh powder and brilliant sunshine. So I have to be satisfied with a walk round the village, and hunker down to read the proofs of my book. So there is a sense of achievement, though perhaps not what I had in mind.

Here are some snaps from today.

I am a writer and traveller. Our darling daughter Louise died on 2 March 2011, aged 21 (www.louisecattell.com) and I started writing as therapy. We never know how long we have on this earth, so I live for every day...in November 2013 I was diagnosed and operated on for a malignant soft tissue sarcoma in the calf, followed by 6.5 weeks of radiotherapy, so am embarking on a different kind of journey which you can follow here. I also have another site www.healthylivingwithcancer.co with my blueprint for health and well-being. My husband works in Switzerland so we flit from place to place anywhere else that takes our fancy

  1. Hello Vicky
    I am really enjoying your blog and I wish you a very healthy 2015. My cousin Katherine has a chalet in Rumieres and Martin and I now have a place in Les Gets so if you ever fancy a mountain meet up…
    Love
    Caroline

    • A-MAZ-ING!! what a coincidence. We wont be back now until Easter but deffo must meet up – got loads of friends in Les Gets too. Do you know Nigel Batchelor and family? Vx

      • No we don’t know Nigel Batchelor. We only got the apartment this year but we already know a few publishers there. It will be great to meet some more people there.
