Financial review and thunder
Cool with sunshine and thunder storms promised for later so another day at home. The review of finances has identified several causes for the present crisis, including the infamous bow thruster replacement incident ( broken or faulty fitting ? ), the rear toilet sink joke and electrical fiasco, plus higher mooring costs caused by my health issues. We live a frugal life so there is little to adjust on outgoings so balancing the books will be a long-term project, assisted by receipt of my old age pension from June onwards. We never expected retirement life to be a doddle, but we intend making the most of it, whatever. Having absorbed the crisis relatively well I am back to feeling OK , which is good news and bodes well for the future.
