A friend of mine sent me this. Two and a half months back and I’m longing to be back at sea…..
SOME TIPS FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE FEELING NOSTALGIC ABOUT THOSE GREAT TIMES AT SEA ……
Leave the lawnmower running in the lounge to fill the room with a lovely diesel smell whilst you try to sleep on the couch.
Remove the labels from the cans in the kitchen and once a day, eat cold, whatever can you pick up first.
Once a week choose an electrical appliance to strip and re-assemble with a torch in your mouth while lying on your stomach on the kitchen table.
Remove the bulbs from the light fittings and use only torches with weak batteries.
Fit a small fluorescent lamp under the coffee table; lay on the floor with your head under the table to read your favourite book over and over.
During thunderstorms, run through the kitchen, sweep all the pots and pans on the floor, run around the garden shouting “man overboard”, check fences for broken strands and bail the fishpond with a coffee cup.
When making a cake/bread, prop up the oven on one side while it bakes, then spread the icing really thick to try to level it off.
You’d think I was mad to want to go back!
