Disappointment, Adventures & Excitement

Firstly after a long and agonising wait I eventually found out that my PGCE application was unsuccessful. I was disappointed but I haven’t let it get me down, I plan to enjoy life and just see how things go.
On a more positive note at the end of March we sailed up to York on the Sea Lion. It was an early start as we set sail throught the lock at 6am (due to the Ouse being tidal)
It’s difficult to describe how lovely it is to moor up and stay on the River Ouse at York. It’s a tranquil setting, to people watch and relax with the hustle and bustle of the city literally 2 mins away to dip in and out of. I love York and its shops, so of course I visited Cath Kidston and Joules a couple of times!

 Boating life is always eventful... but we had a thoroughly enjoyable week. The sun was out and all the cares and worries went away.  This is the view from the window;

So after another lovely boating holiday we have decided to purchase a bigger boat so that we can go away on longer adventures and have a few more home comforts! It's all very excting, the new boat is 30ft long so like a floating caravan.! The Sea Lion is limited with space but this is the kitchen area;
Even though I will be sad to see the Sea Lion go, the new boat has still got lots of its original features and I'm very excited to make it feel like home!

And finally more excitement as it's my birthday today-  I have received lots of lovely cards and presents! Thanks to my wonderful family x

P.S I have also been creative and I am now slightly addicted to crochet-I will post again soon!
