    No, my mankini and mini-skirt. It's still Sunday, so one has to keep up one's appearances!

    If we get any burglars tonight, when they enter the garden, I don't know who'll get the bigger fright - them or me!!

    Just looked at forecast for next few days in Portsmouth and it looks good at least until Wednesday/Thursday so hopefully will be out on new little boat in the harbour, can't wait....

    Will be doing some fishing at my 'secret' spot as well so hopefully will catch some nice sea bass for the bbq... tasty, very tasty...

    I also know where in the harbour to get some lovely razor fish/clams/shells.... I will have salt at the ready!... getting them is a real crack- up... when I first got them I nearly wet myself with laughter ...

    Cooked up with some garlic they are a real treat....
