And sure enough we were! It was a nicely written piece explaining how we'd turned our boat into a 'roof-top garden'.
If only the paper had seen us in action at the weekend - they could have written about the roof-top garden being taken out on the river under the power of the Suzuki motor - which I have to say performed most magnificently. It didn't cut out once, and just purred along very nicely thank you.
But on the subject of all things prose, I godda tell you folks, an' I mean this most sincerely - the Boat For My Potplants will most definitely be featuring in the novel what I'm writing.
I'm already up to Chapter Three, and I only have another twenty seven to go before the mighty publicity machine will kick in and kick ass.
I can already see the headlines in the Gazette..."Murder on board potplant boat in Wivenhoe"
Woops! I'm giving away the story! I'd better go and make a cuppa coffee before I spill any more beans.
