Ordinarily at this time of year we would be getting ready for our first proper holiday of the year. The second of the bank holidays in May usually heralds our first week away on the boat more often that not meaning a week on the coast heading to Wells next the Sea.
This coming weekend we would usually be scurrying around trying to tidy up all of the loose odds and sods of jobs that need sorting out prior to the off next Friday evening.
This year however it is to be a more sedate weekend. We have no bank holiday week away. As a bit of a bonus we have the Tuesday off to make it a four day break but we are not planning to head far. A sedate jaunt down the Witham is in order for a curry in Massama Zone in Boston on Sunday evening.
A steady start to the year by our standards but it will make a nice change to not be charging around with tight deadlines to meet. A chance to relax and unwind.
