Thanks all, we'll keep you posted!
Talk about a stroke of luck, this old girl was brought up next door to our house and is now living next door to an upcoming major industrial development who've offered to buy her out to save aggro later. So she was keen as mustard to find something sharpish and ideally wanted somewhere near where she used to live! Talk about the ideal buyer!!!
Once we've sorted out a rental property next major step is to book ourselves onto an RYA Competent Crew course later in the year. Assuming that goes well it'll then be time to start looking for a boat
over the winter. If all goes to plan we'll be on the water
gaining experience by next spring
Meanwhile, I'm going to retrain as an Approved Driving Instructor 'cos it's something I'd enjoy, offers flexible hours with good earning potential and an expenses paid car and is something I could come back to fairly easily after taking a sabbatical to go cruising for a couple of years (the current
"career" offers flexible hours but nowt else! And the hours are only flexible 'cos there's so little work
Gonna be a hectic year is 2007! Love it
