Scavenger Coding Inspection…

Over the last few weeks we’ve been working flat out on Scavenger, upgrading lots of stuff and making the boat slicker. As part of that, which I’ve mentioned before, lots of friends have given up their time to support me and brought their skill sets to bare to make Scavenger the best she can be.Continue reading “Scavenger Coding Inspection…”

Wet Day on Scavenger Dive Boat

What a miserable day we’ve had down here, everything crawled to a snails pace as the heavens opened. Joshua was knackered from two full days of working so I let him lay in bed this morning whilst I caught up with some admin, sorted out feedback from recent courses and processed some results etc. OnceContinue reading “Wet Day on Scavenger Dive Boat”

Scavenger Dive Boat Maintenance Day2

Another long day applying some TLC to the boat, carried by Joshua and Ed, with a remote working Andy. A second coat of base paint was applied to the entire boat, so she’s looking rather dapper.

A perfect day

Following yesterday’s post and the amazing support and comments, firstly thanks everyone! Secondly today has been perfect. We love theme parks and the thrill of the rollercoaster… so our last day in Blackpool was in the pleasure beach – just having fun. As a three, sometimes it’s difficult to split myself in half to getContinue reading “A perfect day”

Revitalising and unwinding

Today it struck me that I was a little tightly strung and maybe a little stressed. So I made the conscious effort to unwind and relax. It’s been a chilled out day, fun times and spending it with the people I love. We’ve not done a lot… but what we’ve done has been fab. IContinue reading “Revitalising and unwinding”
