They have been sailing today at Lymington, putting in over 6 hours of practice.
Greg's words, not Lewis' "That was the best day's sailing ever!"
Up early myself for a day in London tomorrow, ho hum... off to bed then I figure..!
I am listening to Uri Caine's The Goldberg Variations Disk 2.

Today we've had a nice time doing some art stuff together, some photography, and then down the Barry's to put the animals away.
This morning's activity was getting the main halyard replaced on the boat. Lewis did this almost entirely himself with the aid of a tool he borrowed. He did all the splicing himself, and it looked very professional.

For those not in the know Miranda goes around singing "Do you want to build a Snowman?" at the top of her voice. Today was her chance...!
A few days ago she wound me up by convincing me that it was her tenth birthday, and I fell for it. Until that is she gave me her date of birth, and I put her right.

Greg came home from school today have run in the cross country at school, and I've just remembered the photo I took of his mud spattered shirt, maybe that will appear here tomorrow. He won again , but then you'd expect that I know.
Lewi has been to mock interviews at school, and came back very pleased that the person who conducted his, is also the father of the Vice Principal of Peter Simmonds College... Strings, he's now believing can be pulled!!

We've been re-reading the Famous Five books, and tonight was a good expression evening, proving that when she wants to, she really can.
Greg has been running today at school, winning the cross country race in rather unpleasant conditions. Lewis has been playing rugby, both came home rather muddy...

I especially like the insight into how others react as seen through the lens, even though I was there and vaguely witnessed this.

The boys were sailing at Lymington today, and I've been making the most of the great weather on my bike. Lovely colour all around and rather windy, so I stopped to admire myself.
Lewis commented on the downwind leg earlier from Hurst Castle to Tanners Lane marks on the Solent with the tide flooding, eight minutes of rip roaring fun. As you hold onto the sheets surfing along, not knowing if you are going to pitchpole can be both exhilarating and a bit nerve wracking. A bit like the black run at Brechfa on a mountain bike...
