After accepting a job as a lawyer in Guernsey, i made my way here in late September 2005. This is a diary (of sorts) of my adventures in Guernsey and around Europe for those family and friends who are interested.

Davos, Switzerland 25 Aug 06

Spent the long weekend with Helen and Tom in Davos, Switzerland. Stunning place and great company!

 

My B'day 19 Aug 06

Got together with a good crew and organised a race day art Saumarez Manor (thanks Rollo), styled on the Orange Picnic Races. No horses of course but the turtles put on a nail biting display, rooster got the chicken and the space hopper was hilarious. £1,600 to charity to boot. Good crew over from London!!

 

Euro touch Champs 23/24 Jul 06

The Guernsey team headed up to Edinburgh for a tilt at the Euro's. Pretty good effort on the field and not bad off it, headed by Brendo and myself - I became part of the support staff once I blew my knee 2 weeks before the tournament.

 

France 27-29 May/Lakes 3-5 Jun

Long weekend in Normandy with Meg and then a long weekend in the Lakes Diastrict with Claire, Barn, Stanni and Thorbs - great way to start the summer.

 

Susie, Cam-London and Reyno 30

Susie came out to the island for a weekend, Cam hit London and Reyno had his 30th. All good fun!

 

Bath - 29/30 April 06

A long weekend in Bath with Gilo, Meg and Dumes

 

Paris - Easter 2006

Paris for Easter - everything but the Mona Lisa performed above expectations - who said the French are not nice....b*llocks. Plenty of walking, cheese and wine.

 

St Anton - 19-26 March 2006

St Anton - located in the Austrian Alps is the best snow resort I have been to. Awesome boarding and equally good apres - needed a rest after the week was over....

 

Warsaw - 4/5 March

Kristin, Seamus and I headed off to warsaw on a super cheap deal to check out Eastern Europe. The people were super friendly and Warsaw has a buzz but it isn't the most attractive city in the World. Great for a party but not a lot to see! Suited us fine....

 

Rob and Richo no. 2

More of the same on Saturday - ten pin followed by a party with the theme of 'trailer park trash'. Luckily Rob and Richo were wearing their costumes when they arrived on the island....

 

Rob, Richo visit G land 17 Feb

Guernsey was graced with the presence of Rob and Richo who managed to see the ten pin bowling alley, a host of refreshment bars and bugger all else. A good weekend was had by all.

 

The Mud Run - 11 Feb 06

The mud run goes for about 6km's through Dwits which is a small islands version of a stream - they are rank!

 

Jules and Emma 29 january 2006

A weekend with Jules and Emma was a great way to spend the time - meeting the family and being terrorised or terrorising Tom and Jo. A proper family weekend.

 

New Years 05, Evie and Nicks

Bit of a crew round at Evie and Nicks to welcome in the New Year. I was feeling a little tired but still managed to see in the new day....until 8am....when it hit about 35 degrees
