Bank Holiday Monday

The bank holiday Monday was  mostly warm and sunny so we decided as we still had the rental car we would have another trip to Crick boat Show where we bought Mooring and fender ropes, 4 x Porthole Doilies, a clock,and 2 x CO2 detectors.
We did go aboard a brand new boat , although it was ever so modern and shiny it didn't have as many of our requirements as Festina Lente.

Sandra (nb AreandAre) we did spot you when we arrived in one of the exhibitor marquees but you were deep in conversation so we decided not to interrupt and have a stroll around and catch you later but alas we never found you again. We will see you on the cut some day soon I'm sure.

There is a gardening shop next door to the boat show which was ideal as Sue wanted some herbs and a planter for the roof.

I had a trip to Screwfix earlier to get a grease gun, this I used on the top tiller bearing which  is quite worn and will need replacing at some point this season. Not sure if they are a standard size or not so will seek advice and probably get an engineer to do the job for me.

Today it is now 4pm and it hasn't stopped raining since we got up. We took the rental car back to Enterprise what a great service their free pick up and return service is. If you are in Thrupp their depot is at Oxford Airport which is 4 minutes down the road.

I replaced the two bedroom reading lights with the LED ones we purchased at Crick,  my assistant  Sue is holding one of the old ones up to show the different size. I also cut the rubber matting (not very successfully) to size and fitted it in the cratch area.

Sue baked a loaf this morning and now a joint of beef is in the oven roasting for tonight's tea.
