For the first time in probably over a week I slept though the whole night last night - shows how tired I must have been after the weekend.
My lesson was meant to be at 7am but I didn't wake up until 8:15 so I just surfed in the 9:30am lesson with the other group instead. The surf was 2ft and a little lumpy due to the strong cross shore, but I had a really good time again. Surfing seems to have become so much more enjoyable again over the last few days.
Linton was watching from the breach and he gave me some advice on how to improve again..still a lot to do with weight transfer I.e. compressing and extending my body at the right time..
We got out the water at 11:45am and went straight for lunch, which was perfect as I was absolutely staaarving.
My NetBook arrived after lunch!! I have just put it on charge for the afternoon and then will try and use it later on before/after dinner I expect. It would be really cool if I can Skype the family back home once I have got it going..
I spoke to Tom at lunch, who is now the boss as Kev has left. Sounds like being a Grommie is going to become a 'better' job than it has been - you do 3 days on 1 day off (rather than the current 6 on 1 off!) and the days you work you do 1 morning (6am-12am), one afternoon (12am-6pm) and one evening shift (6pm-12pm).
I can't say I am looking forward to finishing academy and working again, for the first time in about 2-3 months. However its not the worse job in the world, especially when I will still surf Atleast once a day!
All we did after lunch was to lay about on the grass chatting and lazing around. At 3pm Rhys did fitness...Yoga. I really can't get into enjoying Yoga so I just had a quick nap and went on wifi etc.
All I did after dinner was try and get the laptop up and running. I just wanted to watch a movie but it was being an absolute nightmare.
Playing them in both Windows Media Player and QuickTime Player both result in a lot of sound but no picture.
I spent over 2 hours trying to get it to work, then trying to download the most up to date versions from the Internet etc... Didn't work so I just went to bed and gave up.
