The end of the world (?)

Home » Blog » The end of the world (?)

Not wanting to panic anyone or anything but apparently, according to some ancient civilisation the world as we know it is going to end tomorrow. The next question I'm sure you're all asking yourselves is "what time?" — we've had the debate in the office and to be completely honest — we're not sure. According to the reports there is going to be a giant tsunami which will engulf everywhere below 2000 metres above sea level, so it could be a good time to rush to the boat and slacken off your mooring ropes, whilst stocking up on drinking water and cans of spam (or baked beans). Or, on the other hand, a good excuse not to pay any bills, buy a good bottle of wine and open all your Christmas presents early. Speaking of which — a big thank you to everyone who has dropped in all the lovely presents for the staff in the Marina Office — it's a huge boost at this time of the year and will keep our tea breaks going through the cold winter days! We're having a family Christmas at home this year — the children (who don't seem too worried about the end of the world, apart from the possibility it may interfere with the big red guy dropping down the chimney) are busy making mince pies and decorating the Christmas cake, which the cat is busy trying to either climb or eat. Angus is working on Christmas Day, which he always secretly likes (it gets him out of the present frenzy and the overeating) and I'm just looking forward to having a few days off, so, just in case the world does end tomorrow I'd better say it now.....I wish you all a very Merry Christmas, I hope, whether you choose to celebrate it or not, you have a lovely few days and I hope you have a very happy and prosperous New Year.
