I remember my 21st birthday on guess what a Narrow Boat with my boss Lt Commander and his Captain mate.. Basically made me go on a trip to move a boat in a God Forsaken place called ELY !!!
That was my first time on a narrow boat and I was sulking so much I didn’t get to appreciate the lovliness of the boat or the surroundings.
“Boss it’s my 21st birthday, can’t you take one of the other staff with you?” they actually didn’t need anyone – there were 2 people on board – I now know that’s enough to open bridges and locks etc. But I had to go.
Now I look back I remember that boss at HMS Warrior making me iron his cricket whites and gave me all the rubbish jobs, I didn’t realise how abused I was, he was a “man’s man” and I just had to do all the jobs because it was orders.
I would tell him to stick it now. Being brought up to be obedient is one thing but please do tell your kids to say no to the things that they don’t feel comfortable with.
Anyway nuff said.
This is a short blog today and It’s a little poem I wrote about what my mother taught me
My mum has taught me oh so much,
Like what to see and “No don’t touch”
Like when to stop & when to go,
and not to eat the yellow snow.
I am grateful for all the useful tips,
I put my coat on, if outside it get Nips,
I’ll remember your words when
I run through the heather (Naked lol)
and hear your TUT
I’ll think of you and cover my BUTT
Aren’t mums marvellous things – thanks mum for all the lessons learnt
That’s a photo of my mum and dad when they were 21 (ish) – see how time flies
So let’s give a 21 gun salute to us all today !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
