Summer siesta

School’s out and the long, long summer holidays have started.

Hurray

The kids and I are kicking off the first week of summer

By going to a surf camp in Peniche, Portugal,

And learning something new: surfing.

Buddies

I’ve got Our World ready to go up next week

(Hope there are no problems!)

I won’t be around for about ten days or so

So won’t be commenting on your blogs.

Catch you later!
