Can't believe it's December already, my first guests arrive in 7 days and at the moment my chalet is still being used as staff digs, so we haven't been able to do any of the cleaning or set up yet.
High drama the other night though - we were on a bar crawl (strictly for the purpose of getting to know the area of course!) and at the end of the night in Dicks Tea Bar when we finally decided to drag ourselves home, my supervisor fell down the stairs on the way to the cloak room. He properly did it in style though - gashed his head open and broke his wrist!! We haven't even been on the slopes yet and he's had to have his eyebrow stitched up, and his wrist pinned and plated! I felt extra sorry for him because he's an Aussie who's never even seen snow before, and he's been gagging to get on a board. It'll be a while now I reckon, especially because he's a novice - aahhhhh.
We've had a group of Reps join us now so, more people to get to know. They all seem pretty cool, so far I seem to have lucked out on the group of people I'm with. Just aching to get up the mountain now, but they still haven't sorted out our lift passes. Not hugely bothered mind because it badly needs to snow again before we go out, it's pretty icy at the mo. Still exploring the place in the mean time, the Reps made up a little treasure hunt/info quest type thing to get us more familiar with what's where, so that was a welcome break from all the cleaning!
We are hopefully getting into our staff accommodation tomorrow, which will be great as I'm beginning to feel like a bit of a hobo. We're having Christmas day too, with dress-up and everything, it's really only so some of the lads can practice their cooking skills but it should be a good laugh. Talking of cooking skills - I made a meal for 30 people the other night! How proud was I! It was only Spag Bol (& a veggie option) but that's beside the point - well done me!
Anyway, think I've rambled enough for this intallment, I'll tell you more next time. x x x
