A day checking for leaks
The wind and rain was lashing against Derwent6 this morning and the ice was slowly melting. We couldn't even get out of Derwent6 and the aerial had been blown round so it had lost it's signal. But hey ho we were comfortable and there was plenty to do if we really wanted to do it. We had a leak from one of the radiators but all it needed was a little pinch up on the water valve. Al cooked some gammon on the stove and the smell was just the best. We had that in the afternoon and it just melted in your mouth. The rain subsided a bit and Del managed to sort out the aerial, which allowed Al to watch a couple of films she wanted to see. The rain turned to heavy sleet by the evening and we just battened down the hatches and kept warm.
