When will it ever end?

On and on it goes! Well overhead on the sets, maybe double.... offshore breeze. Make no mistake, this is Polzeath at it's very, very best!

So there we were walking across Dartmoor with the kids. Jane says "I told Phil (he's the main youth man at Plymouth) about Billy changing schools. He asked me how that was going to work and I told him that we were going to have to split and take it in turns with the boys. He looked horrified." There was pause to reflect. "Oh no" she continued. "He must have thought that I meant that we were splitting up! I'll have to ring him to put his mind at ease."

Twenty minutes later, having negotiated what we were pretty sure was a Bull, we got back into the car and I promptly reversed into a wall. There could be no complaints - it was a Roman one, it had been there for a while. Anyway, although me and the boys could see the funny side, Janey didn't and all I can tell you is that she hasn't phoned Phil yet! I think after 17 years I'm back on trial!

Surf continues to hang in - 2ft, brisk offshore and the seal is in a very inquisitive mood. I saw one surfer using his arms as flippers to ape the sea creature, but I don't think it was impressed.
