We got a new chair. It didn't stay empty for long.

Oh CJ! Look at your cool chair and your cool dog. I must say I'm Quite Envious!

Are both your dogs (you have two don't you?) sight hounds? Do you let them loose on the beach? It's amazing to see dogs like those running full pelt.

Fantastic dog aside, Germany is worrying me for a pair of chairs comme ca.

Can you tell me what they are please as they are the exact colour and style she’s after!

Er, a yellow one?

I will have to confer with Mrs J.

ETA: I have conferred. It is a Sloane & Sons "Artemis" angel chair.

We have a Yorkie also. He is what is informally described as a "giant" Yorkie, because at eight not-fat kilos, he is twice the breed standard weight. He has none of the joint and digestive issues that plague small Yorkies.

We do let Freddie off on the beach, and a sighthound at full tilt is a sight to behold.

The word "fixed" is being made to work really hard here.

Not sure on that Kung. Think you might be mistaking mist for horizon.

Skinned up (can’t say this without teenage memories) an alp today, then skied down it:

Nice. I've always wanted to try split boarding and do some of that.

How were the boots?

Honestly? fcuking awful.

Brilliant in terms of power transmission and superb in the deep powder field we found but I’ve found a weird problem where when I start skiing hard, the bumps were driving my big toe forwards into the shell. I’m looking at a couple of black toenails right now, both of which I expect to depart the mothership before 2019 :(

I REALLLY struggle with ski boots. I don’t know how much cash I need to throw at the problem but several pretty knowledgeable people have so far failed to get me comfy.

That said, the guys that fit this pair were absolutely brilliant and when I phoned them last night, gave me a couple of suggestions that got me through today.

Going back for more fitting when I’m back in Scotland and hopefully we will get there. Work in progress I suppose.

I tried it a couple of times when I was younger but I’m just much better at skiing so feel I never get the best out a mountain on a board, you know?

Bet it’s brilliant in deep powder though!

Yeah, I totally get that, when conditions are good you'll always reach for the thing you're best at.

And yes, deep powder on a board is just the best, very much like surfing and so much fun.

Funnily enough, I’d have been right into it today. Was shitting it down with fresh snow all day and visibility was absolute dogshit as a result. That, coupled with my fcuked feet meant that I spent most of the day at the bar with a few brief assaults between beers.

Would have been perfect for me to grab a board and get better at it!

I feel for you Dis, it's why I moved from skis to a board.

Remember those DCs I told you about? Similar thing.
