  1. My day (yesterday) was an enjoyable water soaked day of cleaning Lady Emma's outside bits After over two months of not being able to attend her needs and seemingly used as target practice for the seagulls, she certainly needed a good scrub! Six hours or so later, she was looking a lot better. Me on the other hand, well, I've gone a deep shade of lobster Untitled by Jeff Cranwell, on Flickr Untitled by Jeff Cranwell, on Flickr Untitled by Jeff Cranwell, on Flickr Untitled by Jeff Cranwell, on Flickr Untitled by Jeff Cranwell, on Flickr Untitled by Jeff Cranwell, on Flickr
  2. My Mother In Laws Doctor passed away at the weekend. He was 84 years of age and still working till he got the virus.There was a big funeral procession today in Clacton for him and it was covered by Look East news.His Wife who is a Nurse also had it but she has since recovered thankfully. Ivy (MIL) is 99 years young and in a nursing home now, We have decided not to tell her as she held him in such high regard and we don't want her upset. He had been Ivy's Doctor for the last 45 plus years and looked after her husband when he was dying. I'm pretty sure there isn't a person on here who doesn't know someone who is fighting this virus. We are living in very strange times, I hope and pray that these times improve for all across the world.

  8. My Dad also has COPD. He is 73 this month and his breathing and number of times he gets a chest infection is gradually getting worse. He often comes out with me on the boat but he now avoids it when it’s cold and damp as it does not help his condition. Hoping some good spring warm and dry weather will be with us soon so he can again enjoy some boating on the Broads. Wishing everyone who has COPD all the best for many more healthy days than down days.

    The low alcohol version is on tap at the Bridge and isn't a bad drop either......For when one is wanting to stay upright of course

    Sad News

    I not long ago sent a picture of our boat for him to update the library image on his database. Had a nice conversation with him via email. A sad loss indeed. Condolences to all that knew him.
  11. It's only the one night a week that I stay on board as it's convenient for my work. To be honest, Ros probably enjoys it more, getting some peace and quiet from me for that one night
