Seriously

Sprit of light for the night

Recommended Posts

it's a me thing . Friday afternoon and I decided to mess with my cruise control switch on my car which I did not fix as they sent wrong replacment . But In doing so broke my brake light switch grrrrrrr. Only realised at 8:00 fri night , when I noticed brake lights were permently on . I have 130 mile trip to norfolk tomorrow morning . So at 11.30 pm  final fix it . By putting a wall plug on the end of the switch ,to extend it two guns. Bed me thinks . Up at six the drive went well . kids fell asleep for an hour so a result no mardy kids in the car. We got to the boat yard a bit early . So went for a coffee . At lathams  . So if any body so a family sat in rain drinking coffee and eating scones that was us :wave. Can't leave the dog in car so one out all out. But who cares we are on holiday. So know way I can get the boat out off the yard so admit defeat and ask for help. Which we got from a very nice man who loved his job . How easy do they make it look.

nothing real sticks out just a good relaxing afternoon and night moored at Salhouse  ,party on the next boat . But we were cream cracked so did not keep us a wake. They looked like they were having fun . I can remember the party life style before the  kids. I don't miss it much lol.

kids decided they did not need a layin so up at 7:15 :naughty:

breakfast and slow trip to the island at ran worth . Stern mooring with out bow thrusters it's been a while . All good and did a good job . The wife heard the fella at the side off us say " makes all the difrence when you have bow thrusters " she said she did not have the heart to tell him. . Well time to head back to the boat yard . 

On way it started to rain I can't drive inside the boat  just does not feel right so put  my anorak on and enjoyed the rain .

home now and exhausted but well worth it .

Ah the A47 fortunately we only have to suffer from Postwick to the Brundall roundabout.

However Postwick junction is a new challenge every time at the moment as it seems to change day by day

Hi Ray,

Are those roadworks still ongoing there? If so I shall go the cross country back roads to Acle next month from Kings Lynn. Did that in May, it was a lovely morning drive.

Hi Iain

yes the roadworks are still ongoing but depending on time of day the run through on the A47 is usually OK we go through Norwich and join A47 at Postwick hence the battle with the road works

cheers

Last season I needed to give initiation training. I left Sheffield early on Tuesday morning to arrive at Brundall by 9.30 am, it rained all the way there, all of the 5 hours of training and all the way back to Sheffield. I arrived home about 9.30 pm somewhat fed up with the A47 & the A17 and the foul weather.

Regards

Alan

Looking at the piccy below ,  I have often wondered what is to the side of the helm up top.  Is that a corridor to the back cabin or what?

Now I know.   I have often wondered.     So it is the kitchen.   Well well.   So you can sit up top and yell your orders to the kitchen staff (only joking).

Believe me even a small window we women can manage to chuck something through or give you a good jab with the broom handle.   Trouble is I dont think it would reach - may be just as well.

 

Thank you for letting me know and having a laugh.

Now, now you lot, I am going to have to correct you on a couple of points here, firstly, it's a Galley and not a kitchen, secondly, the men are called Galley Slaves and not kitchen staff :naughty: if my other half was to shout an order he would get more than a jab with a broom handle I can tell you lol :naughty:

Hi Dave,

A brave man or what, I can see that Grace might have a reply or two for you.

Little feet means more space for shoes in all of those wardrobes and closets:naughty:

Hmmm, isn't it amazing how brave people can be on their keyboards, it makes me wonder just how brave you might feel if your wive's were to read this, yes, I am talking to you Dave, Seriously and Charlie :norty:

As for Wench's removing themselves from the helm to make a cuppa, in your dreams, if it were my other half he would not be drinking it, but wearing it. Kitchen duties and ah hem that also, hmmm, I'd like to be a fly on the wall when Inge reads that, Charlie :norty: and as for girls having small feet to get to the kitchen sink or whatever, just a myth,  what is it they say about men and big feet......oh yeah,  just a myth :naughty: :taunt: :naughty:

Grace :kiss

p.s I have probably said this before.... "Women like the simple things in life, that's why we like men so much" ;)
