Much Excitement…

… in the household.  This weekend was the Basingstoke Bluefins Winter Championships which meant a hot, noisy weekend by the poolside for Mum and Dad.  All much more than simply worthwhile though as James came away with a Bronze medal, a Silver medal and – with his last race – his first Gold medal.  Oh, […]

Fringe Benefits
