You win some, you lose some

Unfortunately it was not to be, I never got selected as one of the Mark Warner Ambassadors so to hit the slopes I have to save up and book my own holiday!  I am still tempted as are the boys after practising their skiing moves.  I have no hard feelings the selected winners were very well deserved!     

But I do not want my research picking out ski gear to go to waste.  Craigdon Mountain Sports had a wide selection so at least I know where to head to when we finally make it to the ski slopes.  I certainly need the practise anyway!!!  But going a little later on or in a couple of years would probably be better so we can be fully equipped!

Insulated jackets and thermal undergarments would have been a must; I am not a huge fan of feeling cold!  So unless I was ready for whatever the weather threw at me, I do not think I would have suited a skiing holiday.  The boys would have rained snowballs on me, we would have been out for hours building elaborate snowmen and of course skiing mainly on your bottom does little to warm you!

For the boys there are just so many cute things I would just have to add to our luggage!  Like this Ladybug helmet cover (or I love the little bat one too!), if your going to go on your first ski trip of your life you want to do it in style!  Plus it would get my reluctant boys to actually wear the helmet!!! I might have to get some just for them to go out biking and scooting as they do make a fuss about me enforcing the helmet rule. 

Well I mainly want to do skiing in comfort, seeing as I wore thermal leggings yesterday here (without any sign of snow and it was not particularly chilly according to hubbie!).  I do tend to go a little overboard with layers!
