It is all go.
How is your January going so far?
Mine has been a busy one and we are on on the 10th day. Because the weather has been so mild, I have been out in the garden, getting it ready for the Spring. It seems the birds already think it is Spring, because I saw a Blue Tit gathering nesting material and the ducks are getting amorous already. I am pretty sure this mild weather will not last, so to be on the safe side, I placed an order for a tonne of coal to be delivered to the boat. I was told it would be some time either the end of this week or sometime next week, but they would ring me to let me know. We also had a boat safety examination book for this week, in fact this morning.
Yesterday Keith went and did the food shopping and whilst out he bought two new tires for Hetty.
This morning it was all hand on deck. We were up early to get the boat ready for our boat safety examination. We took the flooring up in the back cabin and the shelving down in the engine room so that the examiner could get to the batteries and the fel pipes. Just before he arrived our coal delivery appeared.
After all the excitement had died down, it was time to make some lunch. On the menu today was a 3 shu pie. When we were out cruising last year, we went to Frampton on Severn, where we had lunch in The Three Horse Shoes Pub. There claim to fame is 3 shu pie. Today I made my own version of the pie.
