No, my sex life has not all of a sudden become more interesting, I have just had a busy week:
MONDAY: free trapeze workshop with my smashing niece, who was a star (I was not)
TUESDAY: vigorous and bitchy game of netball in which I got my second ‘most valuable player’ award
THURSDAY: Spin class
FRIDAY: afternoon of sail training on the James Craig with dashing and fabulous Sydney crew followed by drinks at the Pirate’s Tavern
SATURDAY: full day of sail training on James Craig, during which I clambered up to the topmost yard in the driving rain, followed by drinks at the Pirate’s Tavern, then the Royal Yacht Club
SUNDAY: full day of sails on the Enterprize
