Hallo Sue, how lovely to hear from you again! So glad I ticked "Email me when a response is made", otherwise I might have missed you. Have just read the whole interesting and witty blog and am astounded at your energy and resourcefulness, you sound like a person "after me own heart"! We too sold up everything and went sailing for 4 years 30 years ago, but were much younger then.

I have bookmarked it and will look in regularly to keep up with your adventures.

Take great care and enjoy every moment of your travels

Hugs to you and Phoebe


Did you know?

Thanks for the tips, Mike, very interesting. I stuck 2 rose cuttings into my raised bed last year and am thrilled to find they are sprouting buds. Silly me forgot to label them though, so won't know which roses they were until they flower!

Can soot be used

Interesting idea, but I'd be a bit worried about putting it in a pitching boat like the guy in the video said, but perhaps he only uses it when moored!

Ooops, I stand corrected!

This one sounds lovely, strong scent and very vigourous!

My condolences to you and your family from me too, Matty.

I think pyracantha would be fabulous, seems easy to train and the birds will love the berries.
