It was very flattering and I do try to keep in shape
    Sure it weren't the blind school out practising echo location skills?

    Lifted my boat out of the water along with 39 others over yesterday and today. It turns out mine is the only ketch with a triatic stay (a wire from the big mast to the little mast). Which made life a lot more complicated. Still, we managed...

    One of the boats came out absolutely encrusted in mussels - we were scraping them off with a shovel.

    Later on someone stood between the banksman and the crane driver at a critical moment and I nearly got a boat put on top of mine as they were trying to squeeze the littler boats in the left over spaces.

    Now the maintenance starts...

    One of mine broke on Sunday so I dropped it into the NHS clinic on Monday morning. I could have collected it that afternoon but was working so picked it up yesterday.

    Just been down to start the process of swapping to Spanish driving licence. The law was always a bit grey, but was clarified 2 weeks ago. You can't drive in Spain with an English licence if you are a Spanish resident.

    And after October 31st, you can't just apply to swap. So our pal who is a 'facilitator' advised us to swap or we'd be stuffed. He did all the paperwork for us.


    And while we were in the big city, we picked up a copy of my dad's will. That will be a can of worms

    So many people did that here after the Brexit vote that the French system still hasn't caught up. People are still waiting after 18 months and anyone applying with more than 6 months before their licence expires are being sent the documentation back and told to wait


    Bit of a sod for me as I can't get a taxi licence until I have a French driving licence

    His bitch of a partner took him down last June to do a new will, even though he was gaga. Left the house to her, even though he always told us it would come to us. She had him by the short and curlies. It's a fair bit of dosh, but I can cope. It's her fucking deviousness I hate. Always hated her.

    My elder brother is skint and will hit him hard. But I don't care about him. My younger brother will be OK and he's getting plenty from me.

    I'll give it a few days and ask around. Might even get legal help.
