Too busy to blog and too tired to type!

Autumn leaves Jenster behind

Sorry, but we must apologise for our lack of blogging of late. We have decided to sit out the winter in Hobart. So that means that we aren't sailing much. At the moment you could call our blog the "Stationary Adventures of Crazy Lady".
Yes we are still living aboard and enjoying it.
As a matter of fact the advantages of living on a yacht are numerous.

To fill in our time we have decided to get jobs.
Actually that's not the real reason, we have run out of money!. (not surprising at all.)
It's amazing how much we spent living frugally in our 6 months of cruising.

Jen is working as an RN at a modern facility just up the road from Wrest Point Casino.
It's about 5 minutes walk from our berth at The Royal Yacht Club of Tasmania. (our membership is pending) Soon we will be very royal indeed.

I've been employed as an OHS consultant.
My 1st project is as Site Safety Manager on a $34 million upgrade of a commercial fish food factory. I feel really lucky to have scored a job with a company that has such high integrity and a very similar philosophy as myself when it comes to work site safety.
My philosophy is: "its got bugger all to do with work, its all about what you do on the weekends" This is why you have to stay safe at work.

Tasmania's weather is not as bad as I expected.
Yes it's cold, we have had snow, sleet and ice, but its bearable.
Jen would like to add that its only autumn, and thats just the conditions inside the boat.

In summary we are back on the chain gang.
Sorry to those who we worried by our lapses in blogging, and thanks so much for your concern and phone calls.

Jen & Glenn
