What a fantastic fortnight it has been. As you know Mr Ducker made it into a couple of the events...and the pictures of the park look amazing. We watched loads on TV and got to see the bike race come through Richmond which was breathtaking - that and the torch coming through earlier in the day really set us up for an Olympic fortnight.
But as he also revealed I have been on holiday for some of the time - camping on the tiny Channel Island of Herm for a couple of days and then home to the only slightly bigger Channel Island of Sark for a week of rest and relaxation and to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary!
Needless to say, in between beaches, bicycling and beverages I have been obsessed with the Olympics dressage as Carl Hester of team GB is a fellow 'Sarkee' and school chum from way back. I was sorry not to see him take an individual medal but thrilled for the team. Go GB!
But back to shoemaking....we have a lovely group again - very positive and enthusiastic so I'm looking forward to a great week of shoemaking teaching and day 1 has not disappointed! We had insoles on by lunchtime and this afternoon has been less a marathon and more a Bolt 100m with skiving well under way.
Fingers crossed we can keep up the pace! Until tomorrow, happy shoemaking!
