I e-mailed my sis and brother-in-law - how do you fancy sharing a speed boat? My only problem was that Janey had to be convinced, with all the recent outlay she wanted to wait until the end of the summer. Anyway, big sis steps in (she comes down with her kids for the whole summer) she'll buy the boat now and we can pay our bit later on!! Perfect - so on Tuesday the ultimate toy arrives. Can't wait to take the boys out for a spin wakeboarding, and there may be a need for some tow-in R and D!! It's the same as the lifeboat on the beach, brilliant in surf - v excited. Should be a great addition for summer fun.
Sometimes I feel like a spare part!! Today on the beach, what, 240 people through the surf school and what's my input? Very little - Sam and Wail are running it like a well oiled machine. It was great to hear some very positive feedback from Nick (our photographer) about how he feels the beach is going, saying that the boys run it with the same dedication as if it was their own. Knowing that it's all in hand gives us options.
So now that all the projects are nearly completed I'm going to have to look for a new one!! I'm not a natural in the shop, I'm rubbish at it, so Mikey and his team will take that over v. soon. We're going to get a valuation for the beach house now that we've added the shop and new training facility. Fingers crossed that it's been a good investment - can't think for one minute that it hasn't been. Squeezed ever inch out of that one me thinks.
