I'll have a few more days like this please, it's been quite pleasant out on my bike this morning and this afternoon on the beach with the kids.

The wind has been very strong today despite quite a mild forecast - windguru was predicting 10-12 knots, and I would say it was 25+
The boys had a great sail and me and Popsie built sandcastles and took photos of the boys from the shoreline.

Nice Greek supper at Romanzo in Westbourne. A proper old fashioned greek gaff, with excellent customer service. Mama's been running the show for some 20 years we read in the reviews, and she was a bit hit with the kids.

They were in high spirits and we were about to have dinner at the pub in Exford, and they were beating the swing so hard it was shaking itself from the ground.

A long time ago I used to do a lot of Lego shots, as well as photos of the kids eating dinner... Things that were fairly ready opportunities.
Miranda has been getting into Lego, and so tonight we managed to squeeze in an hour or so of Lego Happy Families, which involves her many imaginary friends.
Then Greg turned up to join in the fun.
Last Sunday when we were at calshot we looked at a very sexy catamaran and made all sorts of suppositions about it,s provenance. Well this week we met the owners and designers of the boat. Luke and Jack have been developing this boat for the past five years and are hoping to break the Round the Island record which Ben Ainsley broke last year at around 2 hrs 10 mins.
Turns out that Tom Phipps has been involved in helping them and they also know Bastian tentij of team hydros who was so nice to my boys when we met at Restronguet in the summer.
Come on team cobalt!

I'm siitting by the fire and I can't be bithered to go and look for a photo from earlier so I am improvising with a gem that I just found on the iPad of Gregory. Been out on my bike earlier with Lewis around the forest, unbelievably wet coming across Beaulieu Heath there was standing water 8 a 12 ins deep all over. It had been a nice ride although the wind was very strong and we were both a bit drained.
Then the heavens opened and the wind built up to fury force. So strong that I was nearly blown off several times. Then just as we got back towards dibden the sun came out again.
The roof is leaking, fence panels are laying on the floor, but who cares?
I am listening to Doctor John and Voodoo Queen, I could use a little magic...
