Re: As I Write

True enough, both of you. Time to play Josef Locke singing 'Count your blessings' Wullyum Come out of the docks in Esbjerg, bear slightly right then take the left up into the town.

As I Write

I ought to be sat in a 'GoMassif' minibus being trundled up the hill to Flaine - just in time for Dinner in the hotel, Dear Heart and Grandchildren all happy and smiling and filled with excitement and the hopes and promises of a great week skiing together

Just saying.....

Re: RYA yachtmaster theory (on-line) recommendation:

A collaborative novel could be an amusing idea to waste some self isolation time. (although actually I'm supposed to be working, we've got business pretty much as usual other than some hygiene rules). It was a dark and stormy night.

It was a dark and stormy night. The rain fell in lumps onto the deserted pavement as the Webmaster wandered in a confused state. He had no idea why he was confused which, of course, naturally, fed his confusion. On the other side of the reservoir, grinding against the stone sets of this fine Victori...

Re: RYA yachtmaster theory (on-line) recommendation:

That's a good suggestion - at the moment I feel that ship has sailed for me, Dear Heart presented me with a list projects that 'all need doing'
