It's not all Heineken and hedonism

Yes, we have been working pretty hard; not just in our jobs - Agata has been demanding plenty of attention. The hull took all winter to fix up, grinding, welding and painting. Here are some pics of her in the jachthaven (boatyard):

Plenty of work to do at home too, getting ready to plant this years crops. This is the worm powered composter we built for our balcony:


Here is the method we followed to build it

Georgie and Eileen came over for a visit in March with friend Stephen. As you can see from the pics, we spent quite a bit of time indoors:

To escape the gloom, Fran├žoise and Ian took us all on trip - destination unknown. We were told to pick up tickets to Stanstead airport and await further instructions. Turned out we were heading for sunny Sicily. What an amazing place, we saw sun, sea and snow (on top of Mount Etna) and ate loads of great food. We almost missed our flight home becasue we couldn't find the airport. Turns out it had been renamed after messers Falcone and Borsellino, magistrates who were assasinated for sending down too many gangsters.

It even got a bit warm in Amsterdam by the time George and Bernie came over to visit later in April and we took Agata out for the first time this year:
