The big crossing.

3000 miles is a long time at sea. Before I left I phoned home and spoke to my parents who reminded me of this.  They asked what you do for such a long tine… My mum said I should sing rod Stewart ( we are sailing..) , I said I mostly ponder life and eat Chocolate biscuits.  My dad thinks I should ponder 42. Its day 6 ( i think ) and I’ve now done all of these things.. mum there’s way better songs about sailing than rod Stewart( thank God! ) and dad I’m sorry but 42 is just a number!


I’ve actually spent the last few days thinking about how excited I am for Christmas of all things.  And then thinking of all the things I am looking forward to doing when I get home. To give you an insight here is a little list in no particular order….
