Another sleepless night

Another picture from Pendennis Cup - sorry, I can't resist.

Ever had a disagreement with a friend and not known what to do?

Whenever I find myself in this situation, I ask myself what I’d advise someone else to do. And I talk to others about it, sometimes.

Thankfully upsets with friends happen very rarely - I’m pretty easy going but I have had several sleepless nights recently over this one. Thankfully we have worked it out. Lack of communication and lack of awareness didn't help but the slate is clear now and we will move forward again.

But enough of that - the forecast is good for the weekend and I sit here looking out on our view of the harbour, the sparkling sea, and itch to get sailing.

This weekend, my friend Josh, who has a beautiful 47’ ketch called September (, has invited me out with them to watch the Classics race on Saturday. I’m meeting Sally at 930, taking a packed lunch, and off we go to Custom House Quay to leave at 10am and watch the Parade of Sail.

MollieDog is going to Emma for the day, the most wonderful dog walker in the world, and she will have a lovely day up at the farm, so well both be happy.

Then on Sunday the lone sailor is going to take us out for a sail. At least, if there’s enough wind we will - the forecast is for zilch wind so we will have to see. That’s another picnic - and something for Moll too of course.

Better pack the suncream - or is that temping fate?

Just caught up with this and your previous post, Sue. I love Shrimpers and Crabbers! Hope the disagreement blows over and you're back on an even keel soon.

Thanks Chris - I hope so too!

Sally said...

Have a fabulous time on September - I'm hoping to watch some of the events at some time. I do hope your upset is sorted soon - good friends can usually sort things and I hope you two do.

I hate falling out with anyone and it invariably gives me a sleepless night if I do. Do hope things have improved for you. The weather forecast looks good for the weekend, so i think you can safely get out the sun cream! All that sun, sea and fresh air will do you the power of good.

Flowerpot said...

Addy - it's horrible isn't it? But I can put it behind me now thank god. Packing the sun cream now...!
