When you’re smiling, when you’re smiling, the whole world smiles with you

When you’re laughing, when you’re laughing, the sun comes shining through

When You’re Smiling” is a song by Larry ShayMark Fisher, and Joe Goodwin. It was sung by many different artists, (my favourite is Frank Sinatra, but I have a soft spot for his voice).

My dad used to sing this to his three daughters when we became down in the dumps. It always made us smile.

My positive: The boat is a mess and we have a list of jobs to do that is so long I don’t think we’ll ever see the end of it. But, Noel and I still make time for a good laugh!

Yesterday, we were sitting in the wheelhouse, that is now a workshop, and I looked at the vacuum cleaner. Noel had been using it to clear up after working each day.

‘Whose is that?’ I said

Noel rolled his eyes and said, ‘It’s ours. Allow me to introduce you, vacuum cleaner meet the wife, wife meet the vacuum!’

Needless to say, I found this very amusing, Noel was a bit perplexed and I must say, I was a little embarrassed!

Can I just  say that I have swept the floor since we’ve been on board . . .!
