And a happy New Year!

So, the New Year has arrived without a hitch (or shout even). Last night was a quiet one for me, no over-indulgence thankfully so this morning arrived bright and cheery. We had visitors coming for the day which was fun. All the way from Denmark as it happened with two young boys. Short of something to do for a couple of hours we took a stroll down to the boathouse. I think it's fair to say we now have a couple of dedicated Danish supporters of the RNLI!Morton and Espen loved being in the ILB and trying on a couple of Gecko helmets. Indeed it was tricky to prise them away from it.They each had a go at driving the Mersey.You could see the steely glint in their eyes as they imagined taking part in some huge heroic lifesaving effort!Before we left all four of the kids jumped into the 'rescue dinghy' for a play......good old-fashioned fun.

Perhaps not surprisingly as we walked home Espen declared that he wished to be a Lifeboatman when he grows up. Do we allow Vikings to serve as crew?

Happy New Year everyone. Here's hoping it's a good one.
