I've been asked so often whether I've been on holiday. Drydock has actually been the opposite of a holiday, but now that the cool weather is settling in I am pretty happy that I could graft and grind and paint in the outdoors for two months. Dosing up on vitamin D despite wearing goggles, breathing apparatus and ear defenders day after day. It's been like some kind of sensory deprivation experiment.
I'm not convinced my current skin colour is melatonin but rather a layer or bitumen and oil.
