Before arriving at work yesterday, I was in the predicament of having a dream which I could not get off the ground for want of funding. All that changed with frightening speed.
Not only did I get offered the initial deposit for the pilot safety boat, but I also got an email from Acorns telling me the Free Radio were interested in talking to me. By midday communication with the radio station had been established, and confirmation of pilot boat availability had also been received. Suddenly, and with a degree of scariness, the event looked very, very real.
The English language needs a new portmanteau (the joining of two words to make a new one): Scarited - a pure mixture of scared and excited. It adequately explains my current emotions.
And if I'm feeling that way now, what will I feel like in a year's time, entering the cold waters of the English Channel???
