I used to spend my winters feeling caged, now the days just aren’t long enough! We have three big holiday houses and the main ski season launches in February. Might have two courses next month teaching English conversation, one morning, one evening. Snow clearing for all the houses. Dog walk twice a day. Library twice a week, and I’m just doing the ‘Jahresmeldung’ for funds, not so fraught the second time around. One block of flats to collect Guest tax from once a week. But most of all working hard on the books. Baize Door will soon be relaunched as Challenger, Compromise is finished and with the beta readers and an editor. Tom will be re-released at Easter. Third book to be written, which will be set in Austria. Roll on spring!
