Being Monday morning I went to check on the well being of my girls - the Dockmasters had emailed me over the weekend to let me know that they had been around checking and all was safe and well with the yachts despite the heavy duty weather.

A quiet sigh of relief on my part before embarking on another small task which forms part of our winter refit. Stocktake. By that I don’t mean counting the fenders to make sure they are all present and accounted for. But knives and forks. I literally go through everything, listing and counting to make sure that we have the appropriate quantity of cutlery and crockery on board. There is nothing more irritating than making a cup of tea and realising that you have no teaspoons to stir your drink with. I buy two sets of everything, with some spares kept in the cage. So imagine my surprise when I started A small shortage on Lily but nothing major - although how we have acquired 3 tin openers on board remains a mystery. Then I transferred my attention to the cutlery draw on Sea Breeze. There must be several bars and restaurants around the Solent with a drastic loss of teaspoons. I found 19 extra teaspoons on her, plus countless knives and forks. But it’s the kitchen knives that disturbed me the most. Where are they? I bought red handled ones for one boat and blue handled for the other . By using this Keep It Simple Stupid format it’s easier to track and identify what goes on what boat. Breezy has been left with a solitary, red handled bread knife. As for the other 6-7 kitchen knives- who knows where they are now! Kitchen shop, stand by, I am coming in.
