The Twins learn to fly

So I am up early with a million things to do.  A house to tidy, washing to peg out, more washing for the drier, pamphlets to deliver, food to gather, fuel to get, papers to buy (love my Saturday papers!) and on and on it goes.

Low tide and the bay turns to mud flats.  The perfect conditions for learning to fly the Hovercraft.  Us girls disappear to go shopping and leave the men to it.  Sexist?  Maybe.  But what mother wants to watch her sons put themselves in danger as they learn how to operate a vehicle of any sort?

We buy some girlie things, quilts and aprons and candles.  Driving back in we debate: who is it flying in the 'craft?  It looks like Hubby or even FIL but then mother eyes see.  It is Twin 1, and he is confident, controlled...and very dirty!
The before and after shot.  

Flying in the Hovercraft.


  1. Looks like a lot of fun, sure you didn't want a go ? I know what you mean about the guys and their toys, I prefer not to think about mine and what they're up to while they are out on the quad bikes!! Today I was shopping also whilst they were out, they came home in one piece though.

    1. I thought about it! But then I looked at all that mud and went all girlie. And I'm with you. I don't want to think too much about it!
