Our Lady from Elgin.  So much to say but so nervous that I might feel the back of her hand if I speak my mind!
Seriously, this little lady packs a real punch.  Energetic, strong and purposeful; she helms like a demon; we have to prise her fingers off the wheel.  With a strong sense of adventure she is taking her watch's student in hand and squeezing him to get the best from someone who is spending more hours awake than he ever thought possible!
And without sounding sexist, her natural cleanliness and efficiency on the domestic front is probably keeping the bugs at bay and keeping us all healthy.  She can come sailing with me any time.
PS - she is not dour and neither is Anne!  Or at least that is what I have been told by them both!  (I'm off to hide now).
