Week 28 – 10-16 July 2023


What a busy week – the Island Games have started and it has been absolutely fantastic. I spent much of the week trying to squeeze things in between meetings and clients so I managed to catch a bit of the basketball which was really exciting. The Little Miss and I queued one day to get in for the swimming. It was so inspiring for her to see people she sees at training, competing and winning. The atmosphere was electric!

28.15On Friday The Mister and I took the day off work and we went into town to watch the Half Marathon and then the Cycling Criterium which was really exciting. The weather was pretty awful which made for exciting but dangerous racing. We picked the kids up from school and went back into town to watch the Triathalon relay. This was such a fine event but the rain was torrential – it was awful but we still had a great time! I was in awe of the sporting achievements of the individual athletes and the local support was phenomenal. Such a brilliant event 🙂

The Mister and I also managed to squeeze in a trip to theatre (well in marquee at the park!) when we went to see a performance of Midsummer Night’s Dream. It was absolutely fantastic! Funny and entertaining and I even understood it all!

The week ended with a BBQ with some of the girls and their families from choir and some kitten love. What a great week!

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.
