People ask me if I think our kids miss out on things by living here. Most of the time despite living on a Ship in Africa it doesn't feel like our kids are really missing out on much, the only thing that really comes to mind is the people they love in England that they don't get to see often. But one of the challenges is that there is not the usual array of hobbies, clubs and after school activities to choose from that really suit different kids. Tom has now stopped learning the recorder, much to the relief of our ears and taken up karate. I'm not sure how long that will last either, but he's giving it a try! He would really like a football (soccer) coach or swimming teacher if anyone fancies it?

This week running club started again, something both our boys LOVE! They just run up and down the dock with their friends for about 45 mins getting filthy in the process. Some pictures here:
