One small step

Tomorrow is a momentus day. I shall be going to see my letting agent and giving her my one months notice that im quiting my appartment.

Its been 27 weeks ago today that I took delivery of my bare hull and now its almost ready to live in.

Im busy making mental notes of all those things which need doing and mindfull that I am now commited, no chickening out or going back.

I still have much to do like get the bathroom functional, the gas hooked up, the electrics connected to the main panel, to the inverter and shore power, ............etc etc etc.

But theres nothing like a deadline to light a fire under my ass and get me working hard. Im waking from the dream and living it at last.

Re: One small step

You are about a month ahead of me Anjou. It'll be May when I leave this house and go aboard. Lots to do and it all seems like last minute stuff. Good luck to you!

Re: One small step

Congratulations, Anjou. I had a look at your blog for the first time in a few months, and I'm well impressed with the progress you have made on your boat - she looks so professional. And I love your new avatar - it's the perfect balance!

Nice one Anjou.... awesome job... makes me feel a real wimp when I get qualms looking at my little 21 and what needs doing...
But then I've never been one for foul four letter words.....

Yeah.... but I liked the booby one

Congrats on the massive milestone. I'm jealous as hell.
Hey, it could take you anywhere. Didn't Richard Branson live on a riverboat in his early days/daze? and look how 'high' it got him...
