A Big Decision - Burger or Balti?
What could be better?
There's no good reason for the missus to change her mind - now that there's a rather classy working toilet, even if I say so myself. The lack of facilities was always an objection in the past - but that's not valid anymore, now that we have a bright and shiny 'heads' complete with book-case, loo-roll holder and bi-folding door.
So here's the proposed schedule that I have in mind...
5.00pm Arrive on board with duvet and overnight bag
5.01pm Open the cold Pinot Grigio and pour
5.02pm Open the Kettle crisps and houmous, and tuck in
5.03pm Turn on the solar power, the hifi and the iPod and relax to some music
6.30pm Watch the sun go down
6.31pm Open another bottle?
7.00pm Think about dinner - this is the tricky part of the evening. A Big Decision has to be made;
Should we order burger and chips from The Rose And Crown like I did earlier in the summer, and have it brought to the boat? Or should I cook a Lamb Balti down in the galley? I heard the recipe on the radio this evening, and I'm tempted to give it a go, using my saucepan and camping stove.
8-ish Dinner for two
9-ish Draw the curtains closed, and then get down to something for the first time on board The Boat For My Potplants...earlier this year we purchased a brand new SCRABBLE - and it's about time we took it out of it's wrapper.
I wonder what the highest scoring nautical word might be.
