Own Thy Wobble



Stokes Bay with Hampshire crew

Posted by Yrna, 31 July 2009 - - - - - - · 434 views

It's been a busy few weeks. Our house buying adventure is nearing the end (oops... should I touch wood now?) and we're seriously starting to clear out random crap we've accumulated over the years. It doesn't leave much space for flying, but I wasn't going to miss meeting up with the guys (and Tine!) at Stokes Bay on Sunday. As ever...


Flying at Stoney Cross

Posted by Yrna, 16 July 2009 - - - - - - · 143 views

After acquiring my new vented B, I couldn't resist temptation and went flying to Stoney Cross a couple of times after work this week. I'm slowly getting used to the longer lines (120'). I've been using vented kite and race rods - a combination I couldn't understand when I first read about it, but in practice it just makes so much sense...


Brighton kite festival 2009

Posted by Yrna, 13 July 2009 - - - - - - · 148 views

Despite the forecast Sunday morning looked quite promising as we loaded up the car and set off for Brighton. Only an hour and a half to Brighton and I actually quite enjoyed that drive. Going towards the kite festival surely had nothing to do with it! We pitched our little beach shelter in a corner out of way when Jonesey turned up and stated he's...


Race rods in action

I had a really frustrating day today, chasing stupid insurance people to finally sort out my car, receiving the call from the garage saying that it may not be worth fixing... generally, just a rubbish day. Until this evening.I packed Cal's BB guns into the car so all he had to do when he came from school is change clothes and go. We then quickly picke...


I just had to say....

YEAH!My race rods arrived this morning. Unfortunately, the weather has been rather rubbish so I didn't get a chance to try them out. I'm sure there'll be plenty of opportunity soon enough, though. I am SO happy.


What a beautiful day...

What a beautiful day Sunday was. 15mph SW winds, perfect for flying in Stokes Bay. As I've never been there before, hubby suggested we try to find it. Our son decided to be a miserable 14 year old and stay at home, so the two of us set off on our own. There was an accident on the motorway and we took a detour, but it turned out too many people had the...


Mad? Who, me?

Posted by Yrna, 05 July 2009 - - - - - - · 95 views

On Friday I managed to get the courtesy car sorted out, so after returning from Salisbury where we had to be in the morning, I decided the weather was great and I wanted to go flying. And my son suggested we go to Stoney Cross. Where we had that accident a couple of days before. So, after some um-ing and err-ing, we set off. Mad? Who, me? My husband certa...


On how things go very wrong sometimes

A colegue of mine and I were talking yesterday and I made a mistake of saying my life was really good at the moment: we've had good weather for a few weeks now, I've been flying a lot, it's been lovely and warm etc etc. And I forgot to touch wood!In the afternoon I picked up my husband and my son and drove to Stoney Cross. I was hoping for...


Keeping track

Posted by Yrna, 01 July 2009 - - - - - - · 212 views

I've been keeping an eye on the weather whole day today, in hope that the wind will pick up and I'll be able to go flying after work. I couldn't believe when it actually happened! With wind at around 10mph I would have been mad not to go. So, rushed home straight from work, changed and got into car. I was so excited about flying that I for...
