I was enjoying a lovely natter with Mike and Phillipa, whilst Paddy was enjoying the afternoon sunshine on the back counter and Marmite was lounging in the dirt on the towpath, well that was until a Jack Russell came motoring down the towpath, even with his owner shouting at him to stop. He tried to take on Marmite, but she had claws out and was ready to attack. Both Keith and I tried to shoo the dog back up the towpath, so that Marmite did not get attacked. Finally it went back to its boat with its owner, who later came down and apologised for letting his dog go for Marmite and whilst I was happy to accept his apology, it would have been better if he had kept it under control in the first place.
All jobs done as far as the boat was concerned, I turned my attention to dinner and doing a bedding wash whilst the generator was on. The rest of my day was spent watching the Paralympic Games, which was fantastic. I am hooked on the blind football and of course watching Ellie Simmonds swimming.
