A few TCU's but some great flying at the moment in a great plane

We are experiencing few TCU's (thunderstorms) but some great flying at the moment when they have past through.
I have 2 tremendous students here at the moment, a husband and wife team here full-time to do their PPL on their own aircraft and for me that's been a new learning curve. To learn the new plane and then to be able to be good enough on it to do the demonstrations and teach upon it too. Its good to keep on ones toes and if I am honest I have really enjoyed it so far and am looking forward to more.
I have also started on the books & study for the next stage of study for me, I will hopefully be off to do my Multi Engine IR at the end of the year, but that's going to involve 5 more theory exams and I am not a huge fan of those but on the other hand am looking forward to the challenge.
What is true is nothing stands still in aviation and we are all learning something new each time we fly.
For the time being Mr & Mrs B (my current students) are working hard on the circuit and are nearly through all of the ground school theory exams so I hope to be announcing new solo's in the near future.
For the time being we are doing a lot of landing and taking off at Limoges trying to refine things and are looking forward to getting on to the Navigation phase too to see some of the great sights of the area.
