Its that time of year again when Nippers go back into the sea and its the usual wetsuit struggle. Nippers is a surf life saving club for kids and Zac (our 8 year old Pickweller)absolutely loves it. In the Winter they go to a swimming pool and in the spring/summer they are based on Croyde beach.Its brilliant to know that when he is a teenager he can go freely to surf, aware of the dangers and with the body strength to cope with the waves.

Liza is now the proud owner of a new bike. She turned 6 last week and has spent all her birthday money on this beauty. The reason she loves it so much? It has a drinks holder. So like her Mum. I knew our last car purchase was the right one because it had a coffee cup slot!

Emily and James are here laying up for our wedding at the weekend. Its meant to be sunny so the ceremony will be outside under our Rose Arbour and the wedding breakfast in the Ballroom. I think it will be a lovely weekend.
