"There's no place like gnome......." or should that be "gnome is where the heart is" or "gnome sweet gnome" As you may have guessed there's a bit of a gnome theme to this week's blog.

Speaking of misery, it's been a tricky week on the marina business front because we've had a few problems with our electrics in the facilities building. We've had a couple of power cuts and also circuits which have tripped out. The most upsetting of these was the power cut we had overnight which meant the ice cream freezer in the Overwater Coffee Lounge was out of action. Extremely upsetting from the point of view of Chris (brokerage) and I, (who had galantly offered to consume any ice cream which had gone a bit soft) was that by the time we got to it, soft wasn't in it — liquid was a better description and much as I love rum 'n raisin ice cream I just couldn't fancy drinking the whole tub..........
