Well, so much for a quiet weekend!
It all started so well. On Friday evening we had a leisurely cruise into Lincoln and a few quiet pints in the Lincoln Boat Club. We have taken the small electric oven back to the boat for the winter so I rustled up a pizza and some spicy wedges for a bit if a snack before we hit the sack for the evening.
On Saturday we did a spot of decorating in the boat club bar room. The ceiling was in need of a lick of paint so Liam, Chris and I set about it and in a couple of hours it was much better. After a quick walk around town we decided to head to Saxilby for a few quiet beers and a takeaway to round of the evening.
Well this is where it all went tits up to say the least. We were quickly joined by several other boats from E pontoon and before long the party started aboard the lovely Sunseeker, Sole Mate. The drinks were flowing, the takeout did happen from the newly opened Italian restaurant opposite the moorings, the lasagne was amazing by the way, and the party continued well into the night. I was semi sensible and went to bed reasonably early, Liam however was dumped, quite literally, on the back of our boat at 3.00am.
Sunday didn't really start until gone 10.00am for most of the rabble. Most were nursing sore heads. But eventually everyone had to get up as we had to get the boats back to the marina. I believe it was an early night for all last night. We rounded off the evening with a lovely meal of roast Silverside of beef with roasted med style vegetables, it was very yummy but I dont think Liam really enjoyed it, he just wanted his bed!
Next weekend doesnt look to be any quieter as we have another E Pontoon outing and meal booked. This time to Wagamama's in Lincoln City Centre.
Let the good times roll!
