Sunday 4 December 2011: Snaw!
Awoke to snow!Took a trip with the laddie down to the boat, flushed out the cooling and ran some anti-freeze round the engine jacket. I also received an invite to the Christmas Party and prize-giving. I could surely be a contender for the most keenly contested prize - the famous wooden spoon, for various crimes against seamanship this year.
Out to visit Maw later. I hate it when she doesn't answer the door and I have to get the keys out and enter. She leaves home so seldom that you can't help fear the worst. She was out having a cup of tea with the neighbours! How thoughtless!
