What it's like to be a Sailor

This is an email that was sent to us from our sailing friends on Yacht Andromeda, It is soo funny, Im going to put one on a week until it runs out ..

Try this out at home..

Sleep on a shelf in a broom cupboard. Replace the cupboard door with a curtain. Then: Two hours after you go to sleep, have your better half/skipper/partner whip open the curtain and shine a torch in your eyes and shout , " You're on",OR set your alarm clock to go off at random times during the night: when it does, jump off the shelf and get dressed as fast as you can, run into the garden and shower under the garden hose, OR wake up at 2 am and have a peanut butter sandwich on stale bread.

Renovate your bathroom. Build a wall across the middle of the bath and move the shower head down to chest level. When you take a shower, shut off the water when you've got the shower gel into a good lather. Dispense with your dustbin. Place all non edible household waste in smallplastic bags, and store them in the other half of the bath.Throw anyedible waste out of the window. Bring indoors some form of petrol engine(a lawn mower will be fine), start it and leave it running while trying to hold a conversation.
