Went down to the Lifeboat open day today with the boys. Its a lot bigger on the inside than it looks, but still don't fancy heading out in it on a rough day!

Its bad tho, that a city trader can get a six figure bonus for bankrupting a bank, buy a yacht with it, set off out to sea and the lifeboat crew has to go out and risk their lives as volunteers to save a life. Then they have to spend more of their own time on a freezing cold Saturday to raise funds so they can afford to put fuel in the lifeboat.

Back to Work

Been back to work for two weeks now, I could live with working on days like this all the time. But as the pic at the top shows it is not always so peaceful. This load of wood shifted on the boat and resulted in one big game of Jenga! Took a while to sort out and made me glad everything comes in containers now.
