It is a sad time

It is a sad time for us kiters as well with the passing of Charlie in a kite surf accident off Southbourne Beach. He was a very well loved character at Baiter who had a kind word for everyone and he will be missed by everyone who knew him. We went to the funeral and instead of flowers on the casket there was his kite surf board and his trademark hat. The whole incident brought home to me just how valuable life is.

On a different note as one life leaves the world another one enters as I became a great Auntie for the second time when our eldest niece Sarah gave birth to a baby boy named Elijah. I have 2 nieces, 4 nephews and 2 great nephews.

One of my other hobbies (apart from those in the about me bit) is the tropical fish tank that we have in our lounge so we ventured out to the Porton Aquatic Centre to have a look and see what they had out there for a change from the local aquarium shops. The thing I like about this place is its nicely laid out and they do other animals as well. The kids came home saying they wanted a rabbit but we said no. Well not unless they were prepared to look after it themselves.
