Hi Everyone
I know I have said it before but live on the marina and therefore our life is very varied and unpredictable. In fact its very similar to the bl----- weather, have you all dried out yet, this is one winter I am glad I didn’t spend in a house, at least on the boat I have no fear of waking up without my roof, we have sat here night after night being tossed about like a cork in a bottle but really relaxed and calm about the whole thing. It’s now the end of February and the days are getting longer so the jobs are getting more numerous and diverse. Throughout February I have done everything from saving the next-door neighbours boat from floating away in 80mph winds,  gardening, painting and decorating the coffee shop, finishing a few commissions of canal art, made ten walking sticks and prepared another 12, assisted a friend with his scamp (mini moke) I am in charge of making it look good?? With Hospital appointments, diabetic clinics, and that’s just one day.
I can honestly say that I don’t know how I ever found the time to go to work. Its fantastic its almost as varied and exciting as service life you never know what is happening next.
That may sound very chaotic but its not really everything is well ordered well and well organised Noreen sees to that.
Just a few pics to let you all know that we are still alive and kicking after that awful weather and now looking forward to the spring, getting buggerlugs out of the water giving her a good clean and paint job ready for her next voyage.
Please comment on the blog even if its just bugger off it always nice to know someone is reading it

Love to All
