Rain at last!

With the rain hitting the roof like a sub machine gun and the wind howling and redirecting the flow of the river Avon, we won't be moving today. We can't remember the last time we didn't move for rain. The winds were getting up to 35mph, a no go for narrowboating, well Derwent6 anyway!!! (especially when we don't have to)

We did a few jobs indoors like lubricating all the hinges and moving parts, and adjusting door catches after the movement over the winter. Cleaning out the bilge and checking levels etc.

We also oiled some of the woodwork, but lets not be under any illusion, we did bugger all really. It was a lovely relaxing day. The sun did come out in the afternoon, but the wind was still up, so back to reading the paper.

In the evening we had a little sing song and listened to music as there was nothing on telly. We went to bed early as we wanted an early start in the morning.
