Happy new year to you @FOL ...well the forum is very quiet lol ! So we are still in Blighty.

Still mega mega busy with work . never known anything like it - bizarre .... But cant grumble.

Our visa runs out end of Feb - But because flights are a complete nightmare , we have been told to find suitable date for flight and look at RRV ? ..... But only when we have flight sorted ( if that makes sense .

I must say, i follow a few guys like Soul surf in scarbs ...... and the summer markets on instagram , and it is really uplifting just looking at the photos on there , blue skys , blue sea and that big yellow Sun ! 

Yup , where ok - when we do make it back out weve decided this time to keep place in UK and rent in Oz this time round .

Hope you are well @FOL and still getting time for the sea

The endless blue sky is terrific alright.

does that mean you guys will go as soon as covid19 travel restrictions lay down? Or not sure yet @pegg?


I haven't enjoyed the sun at all! Last 3 months I have flown to Europe twice as my mom is not doing well. So 7 weeks in Europe, 4 weeks in quarantine and 4 weeks at home 😀 i'm released in 2 days.


I have surfed only once since june.. first it was winter and was away with my dirtbike each weekend. Then I had to travel. And now we are expecting another daughter in 2 weeks. So I reckon not much surfing either 😄 can't wait to sneak out for a short surf though.


Smart move to rent first. Hopefully things cleared up rentalwise by then. There is quite a shortage at the moment.

Crikey @FOL sorry to here about your Mum, And with all this going on jeez !

But now youre telling me you have a dirtbike too !! Our friends of friends nr Bunbury have alot of farm land and we did alot of biking ...... never rode a dirtbike on sand before ! And man - so different terrain .

We had a bit of a heat wave here - So got a chance to swim right out in the Cornish sea......... trouble is our ocean is sooo cold !

As for coming over , our son is still dead against it ..... and is half way through A levels - But i dont know how they will do , as his Gcses where graded by teachers and marked down . Couldnt sit exams over here due to all this illness millarky ! So hope A levels it will get back to normal ............ But again i feel we will never see normal again , and thats a different chat lol !

So, yep ideally it would be great to return this year .  I was even looking at 1st class for all of us with Emirates - As 1st class travel had far less restrictions .... But well see .

And yep another lil one certainly takes up the free time .
