A good week again! The British Windsurfing Association have been around Brandon Bay for a wavesailing competition: the conditions weren't bad and there was some wind for them most days. Good to see Kathleen and Niall sponsoring the Ladies competition, and Niall taking second place in the Amateur contest. A good night was had down at Spillanes on the Maharees for the prize giving, and also great to have Brian from Windsurfer Mag to stay for a couple of days. I also got to meet Jamie from Big Salty who do a great wind forecast website - it turns out he lives in Tucton, Christchurch , about a minute from where we used to live!
On the gardening from we've had our very first asparagus from the garden - sorry no pictures as it disappeared to quickly! Also on the animal front, we have one very fat cat - it turns out that Smudge pregnant ( thanks to our other cat, Sparks we think! ) and we think they're due any day now. Updates soon....
