3. The guided tour and ‘that’ cheese on toast . . .

Looking back at this now 10 months later, it’s clear to me I felt as if I was about to turn a corner.

The sun was shining, it was warm and not only did I have a new camcorder to play with, I now had a definite ‘storyline’ to shoot to.

Did I give the impression I was proud of my new boat (and home)? 🙂

The determination to film every square inch of the inside and out isn’t lost on me – and that engine. Walking past it every morning from the bedroom to the galley. Boys and their toys.

Two things I’m asked quite frequently. Was the cheese on toast really the first meal I cooked on the boat?

Yes, it was. My god, all I had was some bread, no butter, cheese and one OXO cube. I didn’t even have a plate.

And secondly. What was I thinking of, covering it all with a beef stockcube? To be honest, I was hungry and yearned for something with a meaty flavour. Couple this with the fact there was almost nothing onboard resembling food, nor anything utensils-wise to cook with anyway.

Ah, those were the days.
