It's Melting!!!! (well it is Valentine's Day)

We were up early and surprised to see the ice still there after such a warm night (well compared to what we're used to). The first job of the day is to get water; this has become a routine in the morning. It has to be done if you like the luxuries of a shower in the morning and doing some washing, clean pants etc.....lol. Del then cleaned the porthole liners and some brass cleaning inside. Then it was the job of getting some wood as the coal was getting a bit low. We have a tree down here and one of the boaters has spoken to the farmer who is happy for us to get rid of it for him.. Paul then met Del and they cut it all up and split it between them. We then had a Roses hire boat come past breaking the ice and closely behind him, another boat followed. With the ice broken and the warmer weather, you could see a thaw coming on. In the evening Al had cooked a lovely romantic dinner for Valentine's Day... Let's face it, everyday is Valentine's Day.....
