Poppy points out that I have been rather monopolising this blog over the last while. She’s been a much-travelled cat – having spent February in Anna’s apartment in Belfast. She’s becoming quite used to travelling back and forth across the Irish Sea. d I think she regards P&O as slightly more stylish than the Stena HSS – I think I overheard her referring to the latter as a ‘floating McDonalds’.
