Maisie had her first day at nursery today looking smart in her uniform.
I don't normally blog whilst off the boat but whilst we are in Essex celebrating Maisies's second birthday The Maisibert is in dry dock being repaired.
We have received the news that due to damage by getting vinyl lay on the prop we have to replace the stern gear.
