Chris Rea wrote about it, he called it the road to hell. I have listened to it many times but now it is a part of my life as it was my route down to the cottage we have in West Sussex. It is the M25
7.50 pm Thursday there must have been a 10 mile clockwise queue, thankfully I was going anticlockwise.
Anyhow this is a boating blog so I thought I needed to make the contrast.....
6.15am..... for the last few weeks
There is no greater contrast, and I am lucky I can dip between the two.... with the majority on the boat I'm pleased to say.
I have a list of things to do.... and buy. The TV is now a smart 22 inch tv - gone is the 18 inch LG - anyone want a cheap little used TV ? Two captains chairs and a stool will be onboard after the paint job.
Outside.... decking that is next weekends job hopefully if I can get my lads helping me on my birthday ! Then it will be a small slabbed patio area, two outside areas to use are essential. Then some savage pruning and I will have my wildlife viewing platform.
First outside job is a better store for a few bits, that will free up a wood store and coal store close to the boat to get the necessary to keep me warm over the coming winter.
I'll feel better about living aboard when I have these areas done.... then a patio heater may just appear??
