Success :-)

Well the chicken went down a treat and the sauce was fantastic. Roy even said that it was the nicest meal I had cooked in the 22 years we had been married. Not sure if that was a compliment or not??? Let you work that one out 😉 I will definitely be cooking that meal again though!

I am planning on making some “drop scones” this weekend which I know as “Scotch Pancakes”. The recipe says it makes 30!! I think I might make the whole lot and share them out between the neighbours, only if they are a success.

Well it is exactly 1 year today since we were handed the keys to Foxglove. I remember trying to open to door to start the big clean up wondering where on earth do we start…………oh and the spiders!! That was the first thing to conquer. 1 year on and the boat looks fantastic and I even don’t mind spiders too much anymore as long as they don’t invade my space. I even find some quite interesting to look at and Roy & I even say sometimes ” go on, I dare you, pick it up.” Never thought we would be doing that.

Got a bit of sorting out back at the house today to prepare for the new owners to take over. A skip has been ordered for some items………well a lot actually, boxes for charity, boxes for storage, that’s as far as we have got. I have been avoiding it really, but with only a few days to go it has to be done. Luckily the new owners are keeping quite a lot of the furniture which is great for us and for them. I have been living on the boat now for 5 weeks and not needed anything that I have left behind at home so everything is going. I was looking this morning around the house thinking OMG all the windows that need cleaning, the light fittings that need dusting, all these extra rooms and possessions that need cleaning. I think I have wasted so many hours of my life cleaning and taking care of the house that I got lost somewhere. It s like the house controls you and there is no time for anything else but now things are different. It is so nice having the time to yourself again, doing the things that I want to do rather than “having to” do certain things.

I am planning on getting a keyboard for on the boat so I can start my song writing again. This is something that I haven’t done for a few years now. I am really looking forward to that.

Well I best get a move on and start sorting out……..oh and then a trip to the garden centre to get some plants for the boat. Sorry Roy, it has to be done! Can’t manage a trip back to Stoke-on-Trent without visiting Trentham Gardens……….Roy’s favourite place ( NOT!)
