Time was running out before Glenn went back to New York, and we
were both so busy that it was so nice for me to be out of the theatre
for a day, and to get Glenn out of his studio for a few hours.
It was a really warm sunny day, which was great; I arrived at 12.00
as arranged. I had never actually been on the boat before, so after
big hello hug, and a very welcome cup of peppermint tea (in a tin
mug!!), I had the grand tour. It was very impressive, everything
has its place, and the bathroom had a shower and a flushing loo.
The living area has a kitchen with all mod cons and a fire. The
engine was amazing, very noisy when it is running, but you soon get
used to it. Lots of things hide in cupboards, like the table drops
down and can be used for anything.
We were unable to take the boat out as the locks were all closed
due to the foot and mouth problems, hopefully next time.
We then went to the pub for some lunch, it was a strange sensation
walking on land, my sea legs felt like I was still going up and
down. After lunch we went back on the boat to chat about and do
some fan club stuff, Glenn had things to sign etc., etc. Another cup
of tea offered and this was my moment to give Glenn my belated Xmas
pressie, a set of mugs painted in traditional boat style (my Mum
does china painting). He loved them, so no more tin mugs from now
on. It was a lovely day, and I was able to listen to all the new
tracks Glenn had been writing, they are great, you will all love
the next CD.
