    8min 8 seconds. But she has only tried it once. In fairness she is a very fit person, has been running three or four times a week ever since Ive known her so I expected her to be better than a lazy ******* like me. But I had hoped I would be below 8min by now. I played my first cometetive game of football in over 16 years today, pulled my bloody groin so the ladder is on hold this week!

    I wanted it to be open and honest, and something for me to look back on, plus it makes a more interesting read than "I did this", "we went there" etc. I also wanted it as an accurate account of our time here, warts an all.

    Its very difficult to grow here. Because of the endemic insects you cant control the bugs which eat everything, plus there are pest bird species that eat anything that grows. They are growing more on island in green houses and particular areas. Bananas are fairly readily available, tomatoes, potatoes, cabbages are everywhere, broccoli and cauliflower too. Carrots grow well and are delicious. So its improving but difficult

    Sounds brilliant, even just as simple as a walk with the donkey's
    Your new role as director or communications sounds excellent & a real opportunity to leave a lasting legacy on the island.
    Good for you Paul
