We have a berth!

Yay!  We finally have a temporary berth after spending the last few weeks including the last three really bad days and nights on anchor... we are all sooo tired.  Unfortunately our berth is about an hour's drive from our homes, so we have to keep a rotational night watch on board the boat.

So... my husband is on watch tonight and I have come home to Lavrio (for the first time in 3 months) to get our little place sorted out again.  It was so nice to unpack all my crafting gear and set it all up!  I'm on watch tomorrow night and then if we are lucky we might get the weekend off!

Tonight I get to spread out and sleep in our giant sized bed all by myself!  It might be a little bit weird to have so much sleeping space after the tiny bunk I have been sleeping on for the last month or so.  But I'm really looking forward to the quiet of our apartment and none of that nasty wind or hull-slap noise!

Happy wishes!

Arabella Chickie in Lavrio, Greece.

Heavenly stuff! You should have labelled this post 'Attitude of Gratitude' - definitely something to be grateful for :)

Lovely to catch up with my son yesterday (thank you!) - wonderful to know you have a place to call 'home' - however temporarily.

Our NZ visitors have had their flight delayed until tomorrow morning... even then, things are tenuous. We shall have to 'wait/see' until tomorrow to know if they are actually arriving.

That said, rather they should be at home than to have to be miserable because they are stuck on this side of the Tasman.

Yeah! Hopefully you had a great night's rest and that the night watch the next evening was completely uneventful. Nothing like be "home" again.
