Skippalong, Sandcastle and Chocolates

11 Apr

1 Our boat (what a thrill writing that gives me!) had to be moved from the marina to its own mooring today.




2 While I waited on the Flushing side for the lovely Mr Smith to come in after mooring the boat, I watched children making a sandcastle and playing in the water. The warmth was lovely to experience.



3 Someone sent us a box of chocolates from Hotel Chocolat today! What a treat! Thank you!

Very special chocolates

I have been battling a chest infection for nearly six weeks and today, while I was waiting in Flushing, I had a phone call from my Doctor to say that the x-ray shows I have pneumonia and must rest. Reluctantly, I am going to take a week off blogging and really, really rest. I will be back very soon with beautiful things for you to enjoy!

    Oh my goodness, you must do as the dr says so you can be messing about on your boat very soon.

    I haven’t commented before, but just wanted to say that I have enjoyed your posts, especially through the dark months of Jan and Feb. I hope your rest is refreshing and restorative. Kind regards, Rowena
