Hi, it's been a while, sorry, anyways news has reached my ears of important news; we have officially installed the motor successfully, so we can actually move! And that means we can install the mast and it should arrive momentarily, so we can get on our way to Venice!!! WOOOOOOHHH!!! Yeah exciting yeah! But I’m just a bit disappointed that we haven’t got there yet because everyone expects me and the goodes to be sailing instead of sitting and waiting at a marina for a month. (sigh) Yeah it’s hard and sorry again for not keeping you updated until now! Us boys have finished about 2 weeks of work, it’s been pretty easy, a bit annoying to wake up in the morning to an English assignment. We have officially 3 slingshots that we have bought and made, two of them we got from a festival (one metal, one wood) and the other one we all helped to make! I found some rubber bands at a warehouse ( a bit like Bunnings) and a nice V shaped fork from some branches, we used some of mums old pants for the rock holder thingy and voila, a pretty usable slingshot! We got some coke cans and we filled them with rocks, to shoot at, you know, but we soon got pretty good at that so we decided to start shooting at each other. One of us will run past and we’d have to try and hit him, it was really fun, but excruciatingly hurt if you got hit (talk about intelligence, Ha)! We have gotten pretty cramped here so let’s bring up the boys creative ideas tally so far:   3 Hacky-Sacks, 3 Sling-Shots, and the Boat-Boys wicked awesome movie (that has yet to be revealed)!

I’ve just finished reading the Da-Vinci Code, it’s pretty full-on stuff, and will definitely test your faith, but the point to the story is of what you believe in. I wouldn’t recommend reading it though. Anyways, moving on, we’ve started to have a family movie after dinner, which gives us something to look forward to. David had to make a dishes roster since we keep forgetting whose turn it is or whose day off it was. We’ve been going to beach every now and then on a good, sunny day, it’s getting pretty nice since it’s starting to be summer.  Before we came to Croatia, David stocked up on DVD’s, including Jaws! We saw it a few weeks ago and we’ve gone snorkelling, but I kept to the deepest shallow bit as I could, heheheehe!

Mums found this UK Book Order thingy that we can buy books from, guaranteed to turn up somewhere in 10 days! We’ve...... I’ve been hoeing through these books like there is no tomorrow (David is fond of saying), so we’ve been trying to get more. (sigh) I miss all you guys, family, friends, colleagues everybody! But Grandma & Grandpa are meeting us in Venice so that should be uplifting! Right David’s bugging me for the computer so I’m signing off and I hope I’ll get another post in quicker than this one!!! HAHAHAHA!!

Hi Josh, I liked the Da Vince Code, was funny to read it on holidays with five other people around the pool also reading! I don't like Jaws, it scares me!

hi Josh,

I can assure you Aunty Vanessa is definately scared of the movie Jaws !!! I have seen her with her legs curled up on the lounge as she hugs them close to her chest, with her eyes all squinted and her head turned away from the tv ... all over a rubber shark and fake blood ... LOL !!
