So I sat down to write this post and then life got in the way again! so you now have a few extra weeks tagged on the end.
Somehow two months have passed since I last posted on here, notoriously summer is a busy time for me and this year was no exception. Although I have been giving myself a bit more time to myself and haven’t been working non-stop this year (until I run myself into the ground – like I did last year!), I haven’t been in front of my computer much at all, which has been really quite nice but I do feel really out of touch with some things. My main reason for being incommunicado has been leaving my laptop at home in Soton and not spending much time here at all. Since July 1st (when I started my habit tracking) I have slept in my own bed 9 times (less than once a week)!
Since July I have:
Trained Wounded Veterans onboard the Sunsail yachts and then raced in the Round the Island Race, since then they have been presented with an award for outstanding seamaship during the race:
Then straight into two more charters.
Had a few days off with Arthur, we spent some time at Chilworth Manor, then we spent more of our time off helping get Emily of Cowes ready for racing at Tattinger Regatta, Yarmouth IOW.
Back to Sunsail for two Teenage Weeks:
Another Teenage Week, straight into 4 days sailing with my family:
Some time at home before Corporate racing into a cross channel race into more corporate racing (incorporating Southampton Boat Show) (read: lots of Very windy sailing!):
I hope everyone else had a good summer. I will do a bit more of an indepth recap of a few of the things over summer, and show you a few of the things I actually made over the summer.
I am very much looking forward to Autumn and planning all the sewing and making that I can get done over my down period. What are you Autumn Winter sewing plans? Do you make any?
