    Oh my goodness this day dream gets better! :)
    What will you call your boat? I might call mine Rumplestiltskin or The Groke

  2. i think it'd have to be wabi-sabi :) because everything i own is and a boat will be no different :D

    "Wabi-sabi celebrates elements that are weathered, worn or rusted. Wabi comes from the root "wa" which means harmony, peace, tranquility and balance. Sabi means "the bloom of time.
  3. The shout was "cupsferrags", or "platesferrags" round our way

    I hate to be the one to bring you both back down to earth with a bang, but have you stopped to think that you'll both be handling the woolie Y Fronts that@Barry Haynes has worn!
    Sorry to mention this especially just before bedtime (nightmares an all that) but me and @snotty had a vote on who should mention it and I lost!:oops:

  10. we'd be sending them off to a local business to wash (dding to the local economy), then i would have a small sewing room boat towed behind my main living boat where i would happily work with ALL that wool :)
