As you may have gathered Al was back down in Kent and has been over the last few days. She had to go down first on Thursday for a MRI scan on a lump on her ribs which was affecting her lovely figure.. She had already had a scan but it wasn't conclusive enough. We get the results in a couple of weeks.
It was a gift voucher from Al's 50th Birthday and Sarah had also got one for her 50th as well so it made sense to go together. They had a lovely chill out time with back and face treatments followed by a nice pub lunch in the afternoon in West Malling where they were met by Erica for a girls chat. Al then got the train back from there and arrived back to Derwent6 at 8.00pm.
While Al was away Del looked at the water pressure problem we have had and and has now sorted it out by pumping up the system.. and also some small engine chores like the stern gland greaser leaking and a small diesel leak from the heater boiler. The wind and rain here has been horrendous and levels have been up and down, so you keep loosening and tying up ropes. The fenders creak and it sounds like Derwent6 is an old galleon ship rocking to and fro. It does rock you to sleep.. It was nice to see Gary and Beryl on n.b. The Answer turn up behind us late yesterday and as the weather doesn't look much better it will be nice to get together from time to time..
