Pete has been working really hard again and the wheelhouse is really coming along nicely. As you can see, he has put the framework in for the windows, boarded the sides in and started to put the roof beams on. It won't be long now until we have a proper roof. I did suggest another storey that we could use for bed and breakfast, but I won't tell you Pete's reply, just to say it wasn't polite!!!! Hope you all had a good weekend and enjoyed the lovely weather. I planted broadbeans, spinach and strawberries and tended all my lovely little seedlings. I am pleased to report that all that I have sown so far seems to be thriving okay and we may well be able to eat this summer!

I made this courgette lasagne last night and it was simply delicicious, even Pete went back for seconds. Luckily there is still enough for me for lunch today. As always I used what I had in the fridge, so quark and cheddar instead of the cheese the recipe says, and a tin of tomatoes with a tablespoon of walnut pesto instead of a ready made pasta sauce. However, reading the comments, you can use pretty much anything you like. I am about to go on leave from work for 11 days and I really cannot wait. I will spend some time at the allotment and some walking and playing with Alfie. One of the discovered joys of living on the boat is how simple life becomes. You cannot 'just do a bit of ironing' or some other chore, housework takes all of ten minutes. After that I am free to do whatever I like, I have even caught up on some reading. Have a good Easter weekend and hopefully you too can enjoy some simple and relaxing living.
