Morning everyone! A quieter night all round! And a slightly slower start to today! Breakfast today was beans, sausages and toast! Yummm. The kids are off doing chores about the building and preparing once again for dorm inspections. Not bright and sunny today and we were promised but dry and looking good.

Rise and shine

Good morning all! A slightly damp, but promising looking morning today after a ‘reasonably’ quiet night. A few movements around midnight and then again just after 6 but on the whole they’ve managed a decent night of sleep. Everyone’s now up and dressing for breakfast.
