On the nose.

Brenda of Scotia said you don't measure this journey by miles or degrees of latitude, you measure it by the layers of clothing you take off. She's right: we started with merino wool long johns and long tops, T shirts, fleeces, womble suits and oil skins over everything. We're now in a single layer below deck and two layers above. Much better!
Most of the time it's not been a comfortable passage so food's been pretty basic or pre-prepared.
Day 1: sandwich and leek and potato soup; Cornish pasties, frozen from the stall at the market.
Day 2: cereal and fruit; Lamb and couscous soup. Supper didn't really happen.
Day 3: cereal and fruit; baked potato with chili(from the freezer) and ricotta cheese; Thai curry (from the freezer, made for us by Carolyn and frozen) with rice.
Day 4: Toast; hotdog instant mash and baked beans, jelly and peaches.
We've been snaking on nuts, popcorn, fruit, dried fruit and timtams (like penguin bars)as well Carolyn's ginger slice and ginger biscuits to help with the odd queasy feeling!
