Ashridge woods

While Robin was off breaking a world record (find an obscure enough activity and maybe we all could get into the Guinness book of records) I had a tedious weekend, which was only mildly diverting when I took Xavier and Rufus for a walk in the gorgeous woodland of Ashridge.
I know, I know – you're far more interested in what Robin did, so I won't keep you in suspense a moment longer. He and his fellow paddlers broke the world record for the longest distance covered in 24 hours by a dragonboat team. He is now probably going to have to spend the rest of the week standing up, if the glimpse I caught of those friction sores is anything to go by!

Well I'm very proud of you and your obscure blog and hobby. This is a delightful drawing, thank you so much for looking after the boys when I was away.

Your picture was too slow appearing (this time of night internet is slower) but congratulations to the rowers. The nearest we got to such boats was a few days ago for the Head of the River and Peceli stood next to a dragon boat! See pics in blog.

Thought I already sent congrats. Here they are to the rowers-- well done, Robin, and I hope you are more comfortable by now.
