New Lego season

Even with his tired eye Felix couldn't resit the Lego call. He joined his school team to compete against tens of different schools from all over Brisbane. Amongst all these robots and programming frantically he is really in his element. Felix and his team won the overall prize in Brisbane!

Now they are off to the Nationals in 2 weeks

Arret maladie

Felix se plaignait de maux de tete plus que de sa sinusite qui n'evoluait pas. Il n'arivait plus a ouvrir completement son oeil droit et un CT Scan (le mardi) a montre que les sinus etaient plus que bouches. Il a alors ete admis aux urgences (le mercredi). Quelques doses de morphine plus tard, la douleur etait moins pesante. Les antibiotiques (sous perfusion) n'ont pas agit aussi rapidement et de nouveaux tests ont ete faits (le dimanche).

Apres une re-evaluation du type d'antibios (le lundi), Felix se sentait un peu mieux, mais toujours tres fatigue. L'oeil commencait a se rouvrir doucement et a degonfler.

Apres 6 jours a l'hopital, Felix est enfin sorti. Il a toujours des medicaments et son oeil retrouve doucement son apparence normal.

Apparement la bacterie fautive, Mycoplasme, est en general responsable de pneumonies mais pas de telles sinusites.

Quick sailing trip

Greg was asked if he could deliver a boat to Lady Musgrave (officially the Southern limit of the Great Barrier Reef). As he couldn't say no, off he went, tacking to avoid the East Australian current, stocking some vitamin Sea and slowly making his way North. Only 2 days later, he enjoyed his quick stop at Lady Musgrave, swam with some manta rays and turtles in a really clear blue water.

Coming back, one of the 1st comment he made was that sailing flat and having lots of space was so really appreciated.
