On the way

John is on his way. The van is full to the gunnels with boaty stuff and all our worldly goods and he boarded the ferry to Rotterdam from Hull and is now making his way through Germany. I am flying out to Greece after Easter so he really has the short straw. I am over here just mopping up and finalising our house rental. Once John gets to Vonitsa he then has to get all the 'stuff' up the ladder and onto the boat but we aim to be in the water by the 10th April. It has been a hectic four months and we are both tired but it has been worth it. The warm weather here in england I hope is just a taster of what is to come.

Nearly there!

We are now nearly ready to go to Greece. Life has been very hectic over the past four months and people keep asking me if I am finding retirement difficult. I have had very little time to even think about it! The house is sold and we have had three weeks out in Australia seeing Chris, John's son and his family which was great. We are now packing everything away again and loading the van. The kids at school made me some wonderful bunting which I will put up as soon as we get a good day in Greece and send them a picture. I hope that some of them will keep track of what we are up to via this blog.
Both John and I are a little apprehensive about what the situation is likely to be in Greece when we get there and I really hope that our friends will come out and join us for some sailing. Our friends in Port Sunlight have already booked their flight!
From now on I hope that I will be able to keep regular postings on the blog and that people will be able to follow and comment when the mood takes them !!
