Boat licence

Last night Bronwyn and I attended a training course to obtain our Boat licence. It was 31/2 hours long and I thought I would not remember anything.
But our teacher was very good, he would have to be to get me to remember everything, and I passed the written test.
It was like being in high school again. No books allowed, no talking, just using your brain. You can see why I panicked. Hubby asked me as we were driving to Montrose if I had read the book. The look of horror on my face as I asked what book made him laugh. Everyone told me that you did the test together and everyone passed. Not our teacher, he has been on boats all his life and he was not going to pass anyone who did not know his stuff. Great attitude but hell for Bronwyn and myself. So our short drive to Lillydale lake was one of silence as we pondered what the hell we were doing. We didnt want to drive the boats anyway. This was the boys making us do this.
But we both passed and then we felt very proud of ourselves.
Very tired today though, getting home at 11.30. So I will continue to stitch the binding off on the finished quilts.
have a great weekend everyone.
see ya

Hello Angela
Gosh I wish I'd known you were coming over this way - Lilydale Lake is only a ten minute drive from my place. Down the road to Montrose and then straight along Swansea Road.
Congratulations on passing tho' - tossing the boat keys your way, the fellas will have a good excuse to fall asleep on the way in to shore now. You can drive dahhhrling
Take care
