I had the week off with the boys last week so we did a few things we don’t usually do. I took the boys to the cinema on Monday and on Wednesday we went to Flip Out in Glasgow. Ethan finally got the break in the weather he needed to hit the golf course on Friday for his review with the club pro. Be interesting to see what he has to work on over the winter. Of course whatever Ethan is doing, Drew wants to do as well, so he starts his golf academy next weekend! Looking forward to seeing him do as well as Ethan.
As enjoyable as the week was, it isn’t always a bad thing to get back to work.
