I've finished work early and come home to lay on the sofa and feel sorry for myself. Trouble is, I'm not very good at lounging around... I'm not good at doing nothing. That is something that I hope will change in time once we get the boat. I'm SO looking forward to having free time to read a newspaper and watch the world go by. Since leaving school (at 17) and going straight into full time work, I've never had much free time. When the boat is finished I plan to pick up reading novels again rather than doing research.
Speaking (or rather writing) of research, after years of 'thinking' - we've come up with a boat layout that we hope will work for us. The photo below is the 'final' layout plan... at least we think it is.
