We've had a great week. The weather has been FANTASTIC with wall to wall sunshine, so much so that I had to go and buy sunscreen!
The swans have started nesting

I think this black swan must be a visitor from the nearby Slimbridge Wetlands Bird Sanctuary. I never knew they had white on their wings as I've never seen one in flight before.
Chico made sure that David knew he was sitting in HIS spot on the sofa and helped him check out his emails.....
On Friday we had our ICC (International Certificate of Competency) and CEVNI tests. Basically they're the boating equivalent of driving theory and practical tests and we need the qualifications to take Bluey to France. It was a lot of fun and the conditions were perfect for the manouvres required by the examiner. The "man overboard" test had to be done with a life ring as none of us fancied jumping in to be rescued.
David's now left us to go back to his own boat and we're just pottering up and down enjoying life.
We're having more visitors this weekend as our grandchildren are coming for Easter and I can't wait! Grandkids PLUS Easter eggs is about as good as it gets in my view................
See you soon, Bye for now
