New Year accident....

New Year accident....

Bearhampton - Bearshire (UK)

I’m sure you’ll forgive me if I could not manage to wish all of you a very Happy New Year…
The point is that I would have kept in mind that when a lady of my age decided to practise winter sports, she might run certain risks….
When my nephew, Frimpong Bear left for his new destination ( you might remember that his job is being a professional traveller) I started missing him enormously and to not remain at home on my own feeling lonely, I decided to react and to join some friend who had decided to spend New Years’ Eve on the Swiss Alps.
Well…you can guess the rest looking at me now.
I’ll have to stay quiet at my home for other months now…please don’t let Frimpong know about that, he would tell me off.
Ah, our children, when they grow adults, start treating us as if the roles had been completely inverted and maybe they are right….
Wisdom doesn't necessarily come with age.
Sometimes age just shows up all by itself.
But as my old friend Maurice used to say,
Old age isn't so bad when you consider the alternative….
Have a splendid New Year!

Oh no Violet! Those Alps, even when covered with soft snow, can be pretty unforgiving! Rest up and get well soon :)
