Happy New Year to everybody. Did you have a good New Year’s Eve? I didn’t.


Apparently they had a good time. They spent New Year’s Eve at a small farm, just outside St Helens. Magda made stamppot boerenkool (Curly Cale Hash) for the buffet, and (dressed in her Dutch costume) taught everybody a Dutch dance. Lawrance (in kilt) first footed the house.

But I was completely on my own. Lazy Sunday, my neighbour, had visitors, and the people from Sapphire also were at home. So none of the nearby boats paid any attention to me.

At three o’clock Lawrance and Magda finally got back, but didn’t even wish me Happy New Year.

I’m still cross, and thinking of some kind of revenge…
