Jersey Sunshine

We have arrived in St Helier to glorious sunshine and 21 degrees. As it is a bank holiday weekend, it transpires that there is a boat show in the marina! Also, because of the German occupation in WWII, both the Bailiwicks of Jersey and Guernsey celebrate their liberations. This means that not only is Monday a bank holiday but also Tuesday and Wednesday!

Luckily, we managed to secure one of the last berths for the next couple of days to catch up with friends who live on the island and also to fix a gasket on the engine thermostat housing that has decided to leak. Not a lot but enough to want to fix it!

The port authorities don’t seem too fussed with customs but the showers were very welcome. We have just eaten roast chicken on board. The food has lasted well and we have found that the thermal cooker we bought is amazing. It takes only 15 mins on the hob and then slow cooks for the next 4 to 7 hours. Amazing – saves on gas and time. Perfect for when you have been sailing all day.

    Hello from rainy wheathampstead…well actually this is the first dry day for about a month but not nice enough to test out the new garden loungers… So instead been having clear out of old tvs that didn’t survive the digital era and even found a nice surprise in emptying out an old chest before it set off on journey to tip !! Bon voyage… Haven’t seen much of Emma but hope to invite her round for a barrie once warmer weather arrives! Love from all at no 10 ! ( hilltop not downing street!) x

      It is Mr D’s thermal cooker. We have a 4.5L one that serves 4-6 easily. If you buy the cookbook at the same time you save £5. It is worth buying.
