Definitely not Arthur Ransome's Swallows and Amazons

Well that's another working week over.

A comment "Quite a story-teller!!" was made to a recent post of mine ( not naming names :) ), it came to mind as I was reading through my "Skipper's Log" (diary) from 2006. This is was from when, as a family, we learned to sail in muddy ditches on the Norfolk Broads. Twiddling my thumbs, waiting for my PET Scan results is driving me nuts, so, would you like me to write our holiday story? It WILL be long and covers a two week holiday. It will be a "one off". I will not be trying to fill Vashti's boots or imitate her style of writing, I don't think anyone could.

Why not 2greys, very interested to read of your holiday adventures. Xxx



I stake my claim for the film rights.


Typing up Day One now, a couple of hrs depending on how often I have to edit it to correct mistakes.


Will it be a serial, with a cliff hanger at the end of each episode?

Not many cliffs in Norfolk. But I think you know that:)


Love to hear your holiday story!


It's strange that you should mention this, I was only thinking it would make a good read again, especially for us oldies with memories like a sieve.

(Has he spotted that I've been recycling some of my rhymes? :-o )


Holy moley Batman, it seems ages since I posted that, so much has happened since then. I have not forgotten our first year on the Broads. I will be taking the memory of it to my grave.


Definitely, I really enjoyed your broads stories and think this will be a great sequel. X
