We're very sad that the ski season is drawing to a close. We've just had a very exciting weekend, with Tom competing in the national ski races at Falls Creek. He joined his school team for the first time this year. On Saturday he came 14th nationally in his division, which included boys in the year above him. He is as pleased as punch and we are hugely proud of him. It's a very exciting turn of events for someone who was a beginner skier at the start of the season.

I guess that's where reading Japanese comes in handy, as you can understand yarn and hook recommendations. So for now I don't think these will progress much further.
