By lunchtime the wind was screaming and the boys came off the water, "Did you see us we just covered three miles in about 5 minutes....!"

Greg's first experience of the world of work, and what a day. He started out at Merchant Marketing Group http://merchantmarketinggroup.com/ as a Junior Designer and has worked on a top secret campaign, which they are pitching tomorrow... thanks to Paul and his team for a great day, and taking him out to lunch at a trendy burger joint (Seven Bone)
And as a bonus we happened to meet one of our sailing chums, who happens to be Mr Oyster Yachts http://www.oysteryachts.com/, so we've had a guided tour of the factories and design studios. Not often you get the chance to see 6 eighty footers being built in the same space at the same time. If I was excited, I wonder what little Greg made of it all, school will be very boring tomorrow I think!

The boys still thought they wanted to go sailing at LTSC anyhow on Sunday morning but I had my doubts especially as I woke, and looked out the window. We went, and racing was cancelled there too, which really pleased me having dragged myself out of bed and down the road.
Every cloud has a silver lining, and since I had my kit already in/bike on the car though we'd go for a bike ride with Popsie instead. What a great ride we had, picnic in the forest etc. Lovely leaves tumbling everywhere and we chattered all the way round. Popsie is very excited as I have promised her a camping trip in the Spring on our bikes.

Overnight we had a few more episodes so a little deprived of sleep this morning, and I had a busy day ahead.
Today she's been at home with me, but poor little Popsie has not been herself. We tried lunch of a few beans on toast, but that came back up. By suppertime slight improvement but sadly not better. Nothing really bad, no big temperature or anything, but certainly not well.
Let see what happens tonight...

This is a double exposure of Miranda with grassy forms from a recent walk at Rans Wood, and it was intentional before you doubt my intents. She looks like this most mornings when she wakes and I cajole her into the bathroom for a wash!
