The Owl and The Pussy Cat

The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea In a beautiful 'red and white'(!) boat, They took some honey, and plenty of money, Wrapped up in a five pound note. The Owl looked up to the stars above, And sang to a small guitar, 'O lovely Pussy! O Pussy my love, What a beautiful Pussy you are, You are, You are!What a beautiful Pussy you are!'

We might get to sea after all

And so the Owl and the Pussy Cat may finally get to sea. Unfortunately it's a mostly white boat with bits of blue, and as you know colour is THE most important criteria when choosing anything like a car/boat etc. So, apart from being the wrong colour for my blog, it's a very lovely boat, and (once we have parted with some money) it should be ours to sail wherever we want...very soon!
These are the salesman's and previous owners photos, not mine...

The boat called Hope
yup, that's what she's called, cute eh?

The sitting room
Where am I going to put my spinning wheel?

The main bedroom
We'll need triangular sheets and a triangular duvet..

Kitchen, (sorry 'galley'), on right
Navigation station on left
Front door straight on

And I guess this should become my blog header now?
Oh my word I'm so excited I don't know if I'll sleep tonight..


  1. Brilliant!!!!!! So happy for you both x

  2. May God Bless all who sail in her

  3. Nina, You and Vince may find this Blog of interest.It is run by a friend of mine who is a somewhat keen sailor, he loves boats of the 20s and thirties - plus lots of others!
