The wind has been very poor, which makes for less challenging conditions, so the boys can't get in the zone. In strong winds the heavy guys get advantage, but mass moves slower in light wind...

Moatt Sails have come to the rescue - It is Sunday, the night before Bank Holiday Monday and we have a knight in Shining armour, a sailmaker prepared to do repairs at first light, and keep the boys hopes alive...
What a great service from Steve Moatt at Moatt Sails in Weymouth - We can't thank these guys enough for helping us.

He completed another Biology GCSE exam today, and finished his GCSE Ethics yesterday. Things are still full on for the rest of the week as he just has the remainder of his Mocks to complete. Then maybe a sail..!

The day began with the sound of Greg and Miranda playing the guitar together - he's been very patient and we're hoping the Happy Birthday music progresses to plan.
This afternoon the three of us have been out on our bikes in the forest. As always a bit of a struggle getting Greg out doors but once he's out he has a grin from ear to ear. Stubborn, awkward, one day he'll learn.
Below is a picture of Popsie from this morning as we went through Butts Ash woods...

She photographed all sort of things very studiously, stopping to ask my opinion on the composition; every now and again she would give me her camera and then hop onto an imaginary horse before galloping off and jumping a few logs. Madcap but oh so sensible.

"Has anyone seen my keys and phone"
"Send me a text and I'll let you know..."
"I just dropped my phone and I've cracked the screen..."
The conversations get quite wild, and are much more interesting than you would imagine. If only I could manage to record a few of them I would be made up. This was bedtime as she "....just checked her email before going to bed"
She's as mad as a whole box of frogs...
And he's in secondary school now, ....look you!

Today I was sitting on the Pergola already sipping my brew, as it was a fab afternoon and I needed to take on some rays.
