About Time I Updated My Blog!

It's been a looong time since I have done some regular blogging so now I need to rectify that a bit.
For starters I am putting up one of the many items I have been renovating in order to get things ready for the completion of our farmhouse conversion up in Gozo. This was an old wooden chest which had ALOT of woodworm. The lid was unsalvagable so I had to make a new lid from scratch, but the rest was 'do-able' with plenty of douses of cuprinol woodworm killer, plenty of strong filler and some reinforcements here and there. A stressed effect paint job and a bit of amateur decoration (!) and it makes a great container for kids games, jigsaw puzzles, various toys etc etc which will be available for use by kids and adults when the house is rented out.

Hi

Sorry but i'm totally off topic.
I'm from italy and i'm looking for any surfcenter in your beautiful island but i'm not able to find anything.
Can you help me?
Is it possible to rent a windsurf and if yes, where?

Thanks a lot

Marco

Rental outfits out here are not very update but the best place to go is the Adira Sailing Centre which is at the far end of the beach at Mellieha Bay. They are on the beach under the Point Break restaurant. They now also have SUP available if I am not mistaken. Summer time we do not get much strong wind but if you enjoy sailing a higher volume board the afternoon breezes are usually very nice for cruising with a big board and sail.
