Hugo after sea cadets
Hugo is off to Weymouth this week with Tom, learning canoeing and sailing.
Apropos of today, the kids reminded me of the April Fool’s day trick I played on them a few years ago. We had booked our annual summer holiday in January, our first Greek flotilla sailing holiday. We were so looking forward to it. When the kids arrived home from school I told them I’d received all the holiday details, but unfortunately hadn’t realised we’d booked the naturist fortnight. We’d paid a big unreturnable deposit, and it was too late to book another holiday so I said we would just have to accept the conditions with as good a grace as possible! Any of you who know the desperate need for privacy that takes over children as they enter their teens will be able to imagine the shrieks of horror for the few minutes I managed to convince them! Have fun, try it on your own teenagers!
