I received an email out of the blue from an old friend who lives in Switzerland. Apart from being wonderful to hear from them after such a long time I allowed myself to get all excited at the prospect of a visit. If we could find the travel costs, they want us to take the family to stay! Visions of Christmas in Switzerland, a beautiful country, particularly in Winter and the chance for the boys to learn to ski!
Apart from last year, we don’t get much snow in Devon. The twins were amazed and thrilled by it when they saw it, but we were woefully unprepared clothes wise. Whilst having my trip to Switzerland 5 minute fantasy I decided to have a look at what snow outfits are available online that could also earn their money in the wet & sometimes cold climate of Devon.
I came across this stylish boys all in one snowsuit by Dare2B Kids available at Marshall Leisure, its practical and warm and even more wonderful, it’s on sale for only £35 a massive 42 % saving off the RRP of £60.
After number crunching and doing the sums it’s clear that although a wonderful opportunity, we really won’t be able to go to Switzerland for a visit. We just don’t have the kind of cash spare to pay for a family of 5 and everything needed to make it a reality.
Never mind, there’s always next year!
Maybe ski lessons instead ………
