It’s me. I’m back. Did you miss me? In case you’re not even bothered, or didn’t even realise, I haven’t posted any blogs for about a month due to some personal stuff going on, some of which I can now talk about!
The big news is – drummm rollllll ……..
We have sold Fandancer.
Yes, Fandancer has a new owner. We no longer own a yacht. Well, that’s strictly not true as we will still be sailing her until September, but the sale is going through. In case you’re wondering what all the fuss is about, in a nutshell, I have been living on a yacht with my husband Tim (over the summer months at least), and we float about the Greek Islands. We’ve been doing this for the last seven years. In case you’ve missed all this, I have been blogging about the trials and tribulations of living on a yacht for some time now……perhaps you’d better look at some of my older posts and catch up!
Why have you sold Fandancer, I hear you ask. Why? What’s happened?
Well, again in a nutshell (I’m beginning to sound like a squirrel) it’s finally got to the point where Tim has finally admitted that he’s not getting any younger, his various health problems aren’t going to go away, and basically it’s getting much harder for him to look after the boat, to continue with her maintenance, and all the associated hard work of living onboard and sailing her.
Yes, I know what you’re thinking. How hard can it be to wake up each morning anchored in a lovely Greek bay, the sun shining down all day, to take a dip in the sea when you get to hot, rustle up a greek salad for lunch and have a beer in a local taverna watching a glorious Greek sunset? Sadly, there is much more to life afloat than this. And the time has come to give it up, for the sake of Tim’s health. So sadly, this will be our last season of sailing in Greece on Fandancer, and the last season in which I will have to wash my knickers in a bucket…….
But don’t worry. My blog will be returning in another form before too long…
