Tom and Hugo racing today


Tom is in the boat in the foreground (number 4), Hugo is behind him (number 9)
and the boy who beat Tom for first place position is on the far left. This all took place in Stevenage – a town where I was reduced to tears when Robin suggested we buy our first house there. Fortunately we didn’t – it’s just as awful as I thought first time, though like many of these artificial ‘planned’ towns, the park is in fact a rather good amenity with lovely trees, lakes and children’s playgrounds.

Your kids will be so proud of you making a social history of their lives with your drawings and paintings. Another cheerful pic.

Wendy, I think if we have children, grandchildren, nieces or nephews that's the main reason that any of us can produce something that will be of immense interest to them when we're long gone. And it doesn't have to meet any kind of 'artistic' standards for it to work.
Penny, all those primary colours on the sails were a delight.

Lovely little paint sketch. Toppers are a great little boat. Finnian and Tor learned to sail on them and a week after the course, a rare second hand one was offered for sail. We bought it and it was so loved for years. Finnian credits her 'feel for the wind and the waves' to the hours spent mucking about in the Topper on our Lake with it's fickle winds - much better than yachts for learning.
