Our Ski Instructors stay with us all the time and I am told that they are very lovely by all the 43 young ladies, who seem to have taken to sighing and alternatively giggling a lot.
I know Tomaz, the leader, was very upset when it was deemed that I was a danger on the piste due to my diminutive size and had been seen in and around the hotel taking measurements and stamping on ice a lot. His friend ZeeBee said “He is on mission. He find you somewhere safe to use snowboard.” Finally when Tomaz came to me and said “You come with me Monkey, get snowboard, like Cinderella, you go to ball” …… my heart skipped a beat.
He handed me a small pudding bowl and said “Put this on head, no one will see under hat, it protect your head.” He then lead me to a secluded area to the side of our hotel ……
Tomaz then gave me a special intensive one to one lesson on my snowboard, at first it was hard for me to balance.
Tomaz laughed and said “You all over the shop Monkey!”
But I wouldn’t give up, even though my bottom rather wished I would. I got up each time and brushed the snow off me, I was determined not to let Tomaz down, especially after all he had done to make my Czech dreams come true.
What a BRILLIANT day, one I will never forget. Now, while the girls are having their lessons, I can be practicing too. I wonder how long it will be before I can jump over big humps?
It's Pancake Day back home tomorrow ........ I wonder if they have Pancake Day in the Czech Republic ?
