Busy School Holidays – Windsurfing, Pokémon and a Courgette Glut

The lovely summer weather seems to have deserted us as usual for the school holidays. This is a shame really as I have loads of time off work thinks to the fact that I worked lots of overtime earlier in the year, so I’ve been at home with Morgan. We haven’t been put off by...

Shoulder Injury Diagnosis – Old Before My Time

Finishing the Lean-to Build – Hot Work

Tuesday was an absolute scorcher here. It started off hot and just got hotter with the temperatures eventually maxing out at 32.8ºC.
