James Bond (George Lazenby) pulls the blinds in his Piz Gloria room
OHMSS Quote - Chapter 8
OHMSS Comic Stip by John McLusky
Blofeld (Telly Savalas) meets James Bond (George Lazenby)

I had contemplated bringing a copy of ON HER MAJESTY’S SECRET SERVICE with me to read. Instead, I plumped for Blackstone’s unabridged audio CD of OHMSS read by Robert Whitfield. Whilst we lay on our beds, Nick listening to the latest Strokes album and me at the bit where Bond arrives in Zurich to be met by Irma Bunt, I looked up at the moon outside our window over the already darkening mountains and felt very happy and content. Dinner was like the night before, a very welcome event as the exertions of the day had sharpened our appetite, to say nothing of our thirst! During the meal we talked about what we might be doing tomorrow at our first lesson at the Ski School.

We awoke Monday morning at 7.20am after a good night’s sleep, a little bruised and battered, to the unfamiliar musical sound of the small digital travelling alarm clock Carole had recently bought me. Then a quick shower and shave and down to breakfast dressed ready for our first morning’s skiing! After the hotel’s delicious homemade muesli, some Swiss cheese, wurst, a couple of slices of wholemeal bread spread with honey plus two cups of very strong black coffee I was certainly ready for what lay ahead. Nick on the other hand was still coming to terms with having to face a time of day that was a stranger to him!

We made our way down to the basement to struggle into our boots and pick up our skis and sticks that we had put there the previous day. Then came the difficult ascent up the stairway outside to the road and the even more awkward walk, with skis and sticks balanced over our shoulders, round to the Ski School. After much huffing and puffing we arrived at the school and nervously waited for the instructor to arrive for the first of our daily 2-hour lessons.

Telly Savalas and Diana Rigg enjoy the Swiss atmosphere!
