Camping nr Symonds Yat

P, myself and the kids all headed off to Coleford nr Symonds Yat at the weekend on our very first camping trip.  We had a fabulous time despite the awful weather on Friday night and Sunday morning.  Along with the 4 of us there was also 5 other adults, 5 kids and Arthur the dog :-) camping in other tents.

We arrived Friday night about 8 ish and then endeavoured to erect the tent in torrential rain.  The water dripped off us by the time the tent was up but our clothes soon dried the next day in the lovely sunshine.  Saturday morning Jo was in charge of bacon sandwiches and then we all headed off on a long walk to Symonds Yat.  Once there, the kids went across the river on the foot ferry and then returned to us for drinks before the trek back to camp.  It was hard work for some of the kids but I think they enjoyed it all the same.

We barbe'd Saturday night and then chilled out after the long long walk.  Plenty of beer and wine was had by all and we really can't wait for the next camping trip now.  Just hoping for a little more dry weather next time as I've spent all of today getting the tent dry!

The New Business!

Hi all

Well things are now starting to get off the ground with Paul's new business.  We've been busily clearing the front room ready to create the new office and I've been hard at work creating the new website.

The business is Progressive Safety Solutions - - let us know what you think!

There's still a lot to add to it but at least it's available now for prospective new business.

He's still plodding away serving the last couple of weeks of his notice period and he really is counting the days now!

Choir rehearsals

Rehearsals for October's concert are coming along superbly now.  We have 4 new choir members - Jo, Yvonne, Madeleine and Liz.  It's great to have some new blood in the choir, especially as the next concert is a celebration for our 20 yr anniversary.

Still 4 new songs to learn but I'm sure they'll master them in time.

P's Job!

Just to let you all know - P's resigned from his job!  Shocker or what?

It's something we've been mulling over for a while now and he finally made the decision early last week.  He's decided to go it alone and set up his own company, continuing the work he's doing at the moment as a Health & Safety Trainer/Consultant.

It's all a little scary at the moment thinking ahead to when he's notice period's up but we know he's done the right thing.  Will keep you updated on his progress. Keep your fingers crossed for us
