Alpe D'Huez

We spent New Years skiing in Alpe D'Huez, France with my cousin Kerry and her son Matthew. It was a fantastic holiday; great resort, great skiing, great weather and mighty craic. We'll be back.

Now for a selection of pics...

Happy New Year!

Now that's some great snow!

Looking the part - at least I wasn't cold.

Welcome to the Alps (I took loads of scenic shots with the hasselblad - when I get the film developed and post a few shots).

like a duck to water

The pool (outdoor) at our hotel


Calypso Coffee at Lily's, which is apparently the highest Irish Bar in the world at 2000 meters.

John Young's 40th Birthday Party

Dec and John - at John's 40th Birthday party in Carnew (in Wicklow). Tim, Jenny, Triona and myself headed down on the 28th for the night and boy what a night!! A night that went on till well into the next day. The drive home was quite :) Great Party John - I'm looking forward to your next one.

Christmas with The Jessops

We spent Christmas with Jenny & Tim this year and we all had a great time. The guys put on a fantastic spread and kept us entertained and well oiled.

Treasure Hunting - out at the annual treasure hunt on St. Stephens Day (Boxing Day for you anglophiles) out at Lough Key. It's the only way to get over Christmas Day.

Jenny wins! the charity auction after the treasure hunt. A treasure hunt we came second in again! Not to worry - we bought the rights to set the questions for next year.

Triona and Chris playing slaps in Clarkes Bar after the auction. After being over stimulated all Christmas they couldn't sit still for 5 minutes without playing games...

Thanks Jenny & Tim for a great Christmas

Triona's Christmas Party

....which I wasn't invited to

One of her colleagues - "Mad Mary", doing her thing...

The Infacta Christmas Party

Here's just a couple of pictures from the Infacta Christmas Party help in The Countess in Strandhill on the 16th of December. Great Party - 7 to 7.

Happy Christmas! (at 6 in the morning!)

From the Infacta Christmas party - Miriam, our wee angel :)

I'm afraid there aren't many usable pictures from the night - I was quite busy enjoying the party :)
