Esprit Week 2 Day 10, 11 & 12 - Alpe D'Huez

Day 10

Started work on the childcare rooms, decorating with bright colours, cleaning toys, etc..
A lot of work to be done, but the sooner we get it done, the sooner we get time off!

Day 11

Again, working on the childcare rooms, looks like we barely touched it after a full day on it, but we'll get there
Also, we had our ski gear today, so i now have a set of skis, boots and poles to play with!
Heading out on the snow tonight to have a little play

Day 12

Starting off with a "Practice" Breakfast, meaning the hotel staff have to wait on us hand and foot.. for some reason i kind of enjoyed it.. although it was strange having our friends stood around answering to our every need

Then back into the Childcare rooms with a determination to finish off, stopping at lunchtime because it was our turn to practice serving our guests, the hotel staff becoming our mock "Children"
Was rather amusing, yet again, weird as they are our friends

After that, back into the childcare rooms, managed to finally get them finished by 5.30pm!
At which point i decided to get the Ski's out and go for a little play in the snow for just over an hour

This was then followed by yet another Practice meal, Guest Dinner, where the hotel staff would serve our adult guests with a fine 3 course meal and complementary wine...
Do you reckon any of us complained at the fact we were getting served a FREE 3 course meal?
Well.. Yes.. but only slightly..
The Rice was un-cooked with the beef goulash, but other than that, it was perfect
The free merlot wine went quite well with the beef too

Day off tomorrow.. either going skiing if i can find a Free Ski lift (Still haven't got our Ski Passes...) or failing that, will go and have a look around the town..

  1. Haha, that must of have been interesting. Having all your friends serving you. I'd end up just laughing and not taking it seriously.. Lol.

    Don't hurt yourself with the skiing!
