At Sea – I’m not sure what happened yesterday, but lovely manager Len got delayed and now isn’t arriving back at the Dawn until next Cozumel on Tuesday. Still lucky him getting a few more days vacation.
The water is a little tempestuous again at the moment and the ship is rocking around like an over excited OAP on the dance floor, that’s had one sherry too many at a 50th wedding anniversary disco. Sometimes it makes it hard to deal and concentrate when the boat is jiving about so much. Roll on 10pm tonight when we’re back in the calm brown waters of the Mississippi River.
We’ve only 2 New Orleans left now, but unfortunately I’m assigned to work all day tomorrow before my casino night shift starts. That only leaves me one chance, next week, to head into town and do some shopping. I don’t have that much to buy, but we’ve been told there are no shops nearby where we dry dock, so we need to stock up essentials. That’ll be chocolate for me then!
I see it’s the first two Classics of the year back in jolly old England. The weather looks like it has been more winter than the start of summer, and seems likely to play a factor in deciding some of the winners. I don’t really miss the racing all that much, but I do like to keep up to date on proceedings via the very helpful twitter feed that makes it feel like you’re almost there.
Not much else exciting happening here at present, just lots of work work work, followed by some more work, plus a busy cruise full of casino players scheduled for next week. Still, it’s keeping me out of any mischief.
