Hello from sunny Portsmouth

Good day to one and all. Not an overly exciting week from a blog update point of view but nevertheless I've a few pictures. I hope life finds you all well and your enjoying the weather. I for one think the weather is insane and want autumn to hurry up! I want cold crisp days.

Started the week by loading coils of steel wire. Too ages to strap down 11 rolls. I was using 2 straps on each whereas everyone else was using one. It just seemed to me that one didn't look enough. Plus of course you can always under strap something, but never over strap it.

Did a short one to France this week. Tip and reload Le Mans. Shipped there and back on Brittany Ferries Portsmouth Caen route. Brittany are one of my favourite ferry companies. A lot of drivers don't like them as we have to pay for food but I've always said I'd rather pay a bit for good food than get crap for free. And the food is very good. Plus finally they've learnt how to fry eggs!

Just got on boat here on Saturday morning. All the birds across the estuary were singing and it was the beginning of another beautiful day. Moments like this looking at those views always make me remember how great it is to be alive. Sat by the window eating breakfast watching the sun come up. And a very fine breakfast it was too.

On a 24 hour break in Portsmouth now. So as is usual I went for a wander. Spent far too much money, again as usual, but the waterfront in Portsmouth is very nice. Watched the ferry come in, sat in the sun, had a drink and so on.

Who'd have though there was an HMS Vernon? I'm going to go and google it now! (Vernon is my surname for any that don't know)

So that's it for this week. Holly the lorry is a year old on Thursday, so I'm going to film a cooking video to celebrate.

Oh and how many branches of Subway are there in Portsmouth?!! I counted 4. That's nuts!

Have a spiffing week one and all.
