Less than three weeks today….
Quite a busy day in terms of preparation for our return to the boat. Firstly I considered how we were going to pack up everything, and how to store it. I thought about buying some large plastic boxes, but found that buying new ones would cost more than I thought. So I looked on some local internet sites where unwanted items are given away for free, such as Freecycle and Gumtree.
I’ve noticed recently that other bloggers have been trying a 30 day Blogging Challenge, so I thought I’d have a look …..
Sarah led me to a list on her blog which gave some useful prompts for blog posts if you needed some ideas. You can find the list here. I quite like the idea of writing random facts about myself, so here we go…..

I have four grandchildren, aged 3, 3, 1 and 1.

We have a cat called Artemis who lives on our boat with us.
