(*) Slowly rising

Seeing the boys tomorrow - huzzah! Picking them up at 10am and going to one of the local large schools who's having an Open Day, with a fete and games and displays and stuff. Thinking of taking them to very quickly visit Norm before I drop them off at 2.30, but will see - depends on how SJ reacts at the time, not to worry.

JD got the cast off his leg on Wednesday no worries. Speaking with him yesterday, he's getting about fine but still has to take things easy - he's getting about in crutches still for a little while. So obviously, we wonlt be able to run together at the annual Edgell Jog in 2 weeks... we didn't do it last year as it was sleeting! A broken ankle is a pretty good excuse eh, JD? lol.

Hoping the working bee at the Sailing Club goes ahead this weekend (Sunday)... the weather's looking pretty hopeful to be climbing about on roofs and things like that! The water level is slowly rising... can't wait until the sailing season starts in a few weeks... gotta christen the Wyreema yet too... my lifejacket I bought on eBay should arrive early next week too. That'll complete my sailing kit (or 'clobber' as us Aussies would call it! lol) at last.

Glad to hear that JD is mending nicely!

I can just picture you out sailing the seven seas in full chicken suit, lol. Then heading back home to Hydra. Don't forget to take pics of your 'clobber'.
