Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)
Remember me:
durr, I forgot...

@Layne, Thanks for all the updates.

I'm a great fan of Les Coches and your pictures have brought back many happy memories and prompted much future planning snowHead

Drive home was as you would expect quiet. Our apartment was easy to clean and we are so well routined in the art of being readied to leave that despite not having to rush we were on the road well before midday. We did a supermarket stop for some journey provisions, wine and cheese, and to buy Christmas dinner! We made the faux pas of thinking Buffalo Grill would be open in the evening. Going to one of the chain of restaurants known as Buffalo Grill has become a bit of a family tradition after we discovered the one in Chambery open on new years eve when other places weren't. It's not Michelin star food but he kids love the chicken wings, the steaks are decent and the ambience and service is always good for what it is. And they are often in handy locations for tourers. Anyway, I've heard before not to expect anything to be open Christmas Eve in France but we seemed to have had a brain block on this occasion. We stopped off at Beaune for a late afternoon/early evening stroll but still with no dinner stop and quiet motorways we arrived way way too early for our tunnel crossing. It was dead but instead of bumping us onto an early train they wanted to charge £97 for the privilege. There was a thread somewhere else recently about this seemingly new practice. Shame on you Eurotunnel. So we had a tedious wait at the Calais terminal before resuming the journey. On arrival home we've half unpacked, drank lots of tea, opened chrissy presents, made a fire, cooked and ate Christmas dinner (lamb) and drank a little wine and beer.

Reflecting on the week in no way can it be described as vintage but it was fun, we made the best of it and it was a lot better than being in the bloody office!
