Size matters

What is it with UK sizing? "your M and S" does ladies knickers at size 8-10, 12-14, 16-18 etc. What are you expected to do if you are 10-12 or 14-16? Absolutely the same problem with walking socks ( of which I get through many) which come in sizes 3-5 or 6-8. I take a 5 and a half!!!! It's enough to make a girl wail. Anyway, the wind somewhat abated, we moved to Stoke Bruerne, despite my ill-fitting underwear and ill-fitting socks, today. Not a pretty day for pics, but here are the best.

Wishing everyone a healthy and happy cruising New Year with a thank you to everyone who has stuck with us on the blog through our trials and tribulations during 2011 and we hope we  haven't bored the pants off of you (even if you did find the right size). To all our new friends and those amazing people (new and established) that plunged in when we were in trouble, we thank you and know that this is the true spirit of boating and the boating community - OK so there's been a few oiks along the way, but you wouldn't want me getting all sentimental now would you........or would you?


  1. Happy New Year to you too, though I am surprised that you didn't give us a rousing send-off with photos of said pants and socks!

  2. Now there's a thought - what did I do with Grandma's bloomers.....Graham?

  3. And Happy New Year to you both. It was nice to meet you this year and I hope we meet up sometime, somewhere next year

  4. Kath, bound to meet up properly soon. Take care
