On Your Marks ………..

We’re not at the ‘get set’ stage yet and definitely not ready to go but ………….. we are thinking about it and working towards it.

Historically the 1st March is when we leave our winter marina mooring, re-join the cut and start cruising around for the next nine months.  Sadly, that is not to be this year. Olive’s funeral is tomorrow. Such a lot has happened over the last few months and such a lot still needs to happen!  Despite this, I have decided to re-start our blog on this day as usual.  We need to go back to our boat quite soon to sort some things out there but, inevitably, we will be back and forth to Staines for some time yet.  We are really hoping to get out for a short cruise towards the end of March/April but we will have to wait and see.

Megan?  We spoke to her this morning.  The ship is at sea making it’s way to Bali having recently visited Komodo and it’s famous ‘dragons’.  She said that the scenery is absolutely stunning.  She is working incredibly hard and says she has ‘ups and downs’ – well, you would on the ocean wouldn’t you?!!

Anyway, “Pinch, punch, 1st of the month”………………..  Where did that saying come from and exactly what is it all about?

Happy St David’s Day to all those with Welsh blood in their veins.
