Week 27 – 3-9 July 2023


Things have eased off a little this week as several of the kids activities have stopped due to Island Games preparation so we don’t have swimming and things like that.

27.11Monday started with the annual Viaer Marche which is a traditional Guernsey summer fayre and is a fundraiser for the Guernsey National Trust. It is an opportunity to eat Guernsey food and see as many family members in as small a space as possible! They have loads of traditional crafts and things like that as well as some very warbly singing!

The Little Miss had her first school overnight trip and she went to stay in Lihou with her class. This is a little island which is on accessible at low tide by a causeway. She had a fab time and made this lovely beach art which was her favourite animal, a panda. The boys and I went ouf with Grandpa for dinner and we sat on the terrace over looking Vazon. Just beautiful.

On Saturday the Guernsey Island Games 2023 launched with an opening ceremony in town. There were thousands of people lining the parade route and it was so exciting to see all the teams.

Sunday was the highlight of my week with the men and women’s Triathlon. Over a fabulous course on the West coast of Guernsey we watched Guernsey get gold in the individual men’s race and gold and bronze in the women’s as well as gold in the women’s team event and silver in the men’s/ The atmosphere was immense and it was such a fabulous event to attend. We then headed to a friend’s house to chill out, the kids swam in their pool and we ate homemade pizza. An amazing end to the week.

Week 26 – 26 June-2 July 2023


26.4A very busy week leading up to a very busy weekend.

On Friday The Little Miss had Cubs at the Bathing Pools. It was an unusually foggy day in comparison to the really hot weather we have been having recently but that did not deter the crazy people who spent ages in the pools.

Saturday was our busiest day yet as we had Music Centre Open Day. Both kids are still playing the violin but from September Eliza will be switching to play the clarinet. She is incredibly excited about this and is really looking forward to it. Having listened to Primary Woodwind at open day I am not uite as excited about the early days of learning!

On Sunday we had our annual church in a field. It was a beautiful day and my aunt and uncle came with us which was lovely. I love this church community. They are authentic and fun and they enrich my life.

On Sunday afternoon The Little Mister had a coasteering party with some of his friend. Such a brilliant activity for them all and Guernsey is the most beautiful place to spend time like this.

Week 25 – 19-25 June 2023


It’s been a funny old week as I have felt really quite off-colour. I am not sure whether it is the heat or something else.

We have seen the kittens a few times and The Little Miss is really besotted with one of the black ones. She is on a bit of a charm offensive to persuade The Mister that we need one. He is proving to be a tough nut to crack! Who could resist her cute face though?

On Tuesday I went out for a sail with The Little Mister’s class as they were taken out on a clipper. It was a perfect afternoon and the kids had a fabulous experience.

I ended the week by going to Herm with some of my work colleagues for a wedding dance. It was a really warm evening which was perfect and my cousin’s band The Rubix was playing – they are a covers band and it was such fun. I danced until my feet hurt, and then I got the boat back to Guernsey and cycled home. A fabulous end to the week.
