Sunday Brunch Club
SBC SKI 2011, Mayrhofen, Austria, a set on Flickr.
We’ve just come back from a fantastic ski holiday in Myrhofen, Austria. After many years ski holidays in France, we absolutely loved Austria.
We were lucky to have two days of snow before we left and glorious sunshine while we were away.
Our hotel Sporthotel Strauss was fantastic, the rooms were big with balconys, we were served 5 course dinners every night by the wonderful Marcio, we were right next to the Penken lift, in the heart of apres and of course there was the naked spa. What can I say? I’m a convert!
Next year we’re looking at Austria again, or perhaps Switzerland or Italy.
This year’s trip sold out in just two weeks. If you want early alerts for next year’s ski trip email firstname.lastname@example.org
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Today I’m writing about what is a love for many people including me: walking.
Walking has become hugely popular in the Sunday Brunch Club. January’s walk was a beautiful coastal walk in East Tyninghame. A bumper turnout with over 30 people walking with us that day. The Club’s walks are very sociable with an emphasis on fun and enjoying the beauty of the Scottish countryside.
Huge thanks to Robin who led the walk.
February’s walk is a walk in The Pentlands led by Ian.

February book The Piano Shop on the Left Bank by T E Carhart
Last night’s discussion of this book really divided opinion between those who while enjoying the start found that the book quickly became dull, uninspiring and unconvincing to those who thought it refreshing, enjoyable and a joy to read. Fifteen people attended and scored the book an average of 6.1.
Free service for Book Groups
City of Edinburgh Libraries has launched a marvellous new scheme for local book groups. Over 100 titles are available for loan to book groups. Fifteen copies of each book can be borrowed for up to 6 weeks. This means we’ll no longer need to buy or borrow books individually – it’s a great idea!
We’ve decided to choose some books from the scheme for our Summer reading. You can see all Book Collection titles at the link below. Leave a comment below this post with your top 3 and we’ll make choices from the suggestions at next month’s Book Goup
Remember to leave a comment below with your top 3 preferences for our July book from the choices here.
