  1. This is excellent, jolly thanks for sharing
  2. Lucky you Mr lol Stuck in this office with you know who, went out for lunch and he'd turned our heater off while we were out How long are you guys afloat for, might need to follow your holiday tale to help my sanity this week and I've only been back since 8am hahahaha.
  3. Awwww looks like you are having a fun trip but how cold is it guys, stay warm and cosy
  4. We always find ourselves wondering what could survive being left out of the fridge to leave space for beer as most of the time the 3 of us on board all drink something different, which is tricky on small hire boat fridges, turns are taken to restock every couple of hours lol we also have an electric cool box that is 12v which is handy
  5. It's actually so nice to see what other pubs there are about, the little maps are such a big help. I'm going to make a list for future trips so we are not just sticking the riverside regulars
  6. I'm fairly ok on my feet but only being a shorty at 5'1" I also sometimes struggle with the step down into a front well or to the stern door, very much care is given when picking a hire boat for us with this in mind lol
  7. That's because you like being in trouble
  8. I have the same issue with Mark, i'm 5'1" and he's 5'10"
  9. Dukes Head - Somerleyton don't people look at you funny taking random pics of the inside of pubs lol
  10. What do you class as a "Premium" larger then?
  11. We adopt this technique to Jean, depends on the boat, we can both do and will if needed but most of the time I'm at the helm anyway while hubby is passing the drinks lol
  12. I've never drunk larger and I'm very shocked Mike is tbf lol and you're not wrong there, known a few of em long enough hahaha.
  13. Gracie I've attempted to take heeled sandals, ankle boots the lot with me and still end up in walking boots or boat shoes lol I've discovered heeled trainers this summer going to car shows and such, they really are the future
  14. Erm not all the young ones
  15. Hahaha good for you It's not even that, he just goes, well trained you see lol Yeah we have been on the South side loads, just find it so much windier and open but there are some lovely little places and we always enjoy crossing Breydon, such fun.
  16. Awwww that's the pits that Mike, I'd be on the short stuff for sure instead of that lol
  17. Do you literally drink anything????? Yay I knew one, don't recognise many on the south side and very rarely from a bar shot as I never have to go hahahaha
  18. That's not even it I bet you've asked for Stella in an Aspall glass Are you at the Surlingham Ferry btw????
  19. You kind of have a point so I'll let that one go Not jealous in the slightest but a nice crisp pint of Aspal would go down a treat at lunch time yum yum Omg that reminds me of a time we hired a Barnes Breakaway boat just for the weekend and because of the rain and lack of windscreen wipers we had to cruise along with Mark's head up out of the canopy, next thing I know, whoosh, gust of wind and off went his first mates cap into the water, luckily friends we're following behind us and scooped it up Thank you ever so much but I'm a cider lover rather than larger, beer or a
  20. What lovely weather for you today, far nicer than grim grey gloomy Manchester where it is raining currently, funny how nobody minds it raining afloat, we sure don't anyway. I remember on our Honeymoon we had the then Swan Ranger and even when it rained we still sat upstairs and cruised along with a brolly up
  21. Hey guys if Mark pulls his finger out at home he'll join us, I've sent him the link
  22. Got my laptop and ready to rock n roll be kind lol
  23. Oh I think I've seen this in the supermarket, may pick up a bottle now tonight and give it a go, is it much difference to your standard Coka Cola???
  24. I have made all sorts on board before now from full roast dinners to pies, from home made lasagna to just a tin of stewed steak with mash and mushy peas. Most hire boats (including the old ones) have excellent galley facilities so when you are used to camping and cooking a full steak dinner on a 2 burner gas stove, anything is achievable on a boat
