  1. A definite yes from our son. Then again he's only 10...😃
  2. Great news Dave, best thing I’ve read today & really pleased for you. All the best Damian
  3. Well done for braving A&E (not nice even in normal times) & fingers crossed you heal quicker than the estimate. Best wishes Damian
  4. Thanks Graham, I'm putting in some long hours but feel secure and am still grateful for the opportunity. We have a great manager who regularly tells us all to log off early - only (say) 4:30pm or 5pm instead of 6pm but it all helps. The last few weeks I've been able to have the cricket on via YouTube in the background while working (to watch Yorkshire in the County Championship) which I've thoroughly enjoyed. Cheers Damian
  5. Belated Happy Birthday Avril 🎂 Glad to hear your mum is okay Sue. I've not posted for a while but I have been catching up every now and then and it's great to hear that 2nd vaccinations are either done or scheduled. My wife (in her 40's) has already had her 2nd jab whereas I (6 years older) have another 5 weeks to wait. I really should have switched to the same surgery as her years ago. Best wishes to all.

  6. Tough times Pete, I can especially relate to your employment situation and all credit to you for getting that second job. You have my utmost respect remaining compliant with all the lockdown restrictions (as does everyone else who follows the rules) when it is blatantly obvious that so many are ignoring these. It’s a real source of frustration for me but I try hard to focus on things I can control and not get too upset by things that I can’t. I hope things pick up for you sooner rather than later. Damian
  7. Anyone following the Suez Canal wedged container ship saga? Honestly, they think they've got problems?
  8. I woke up a lot earlier than usual today, just after 6am. I couldn’t work out why but now I know who to blame! 😀
  9. Speaking as someone who likes to buy a bottle of wine at dinner most evenings on board our experience of the wine packages is that we tried them twice but couldn’t really make them work for us. There is a good discount but to some extent, for us anyway, that is somewhat negated by there always being one or two selections in the package which we wouldn’t usually choose and isn’t really to our taste. That said, I always keep an open mind and always take a look at what’s on offer as the selections do change and one day we may see something that suits us perfectly. From memory, the last
  10. One of our local butchers makes a mean pork pie: About Us | Wilsons Butchers If I'm in that area it's considered rude not to pop in and buy at least one.
  11. It looks like our sector ended in Huatulco but we're looking forward to everyone's photos and may be back on board in future.
  12. In Huatulco we took a private boat tour to a deserted beach and various coastline sites before the pilot dropped us off at his friends beach side cafe. I remember it was a lovely lunch, seems like it was so good we dudn't take any photos. On the return journey there were so many pelicans flying around that I asked our pilot what the Spanish name for them was. He then very slowly and deliberately spelt out "Pel-i-can-o!" 😃 Back in port we strolled around and had a look at the open plan church.
  13. I think we have a lot of the same photos as everyone else so here's a few that I think are different: This is my favourite:
