Sunday evening

Wind blowing like billy-o. Not sure of the spelling. I’ve never written it before. Quite a surprise anyway, because it has been another spectacularly gorgeous day.

After an early start – Cat alerted me to littertray cleaning duties at 6am, and again at 6.30 so the bin bag was fairly full – breakfast was not the Sunday morning late lie-in styly I had envisaged. I drove off to Halfords and got the bike cleaning stuff janh1 advised. Also something to help a rusty chain. And some bolts. Only little ones, but it would be nice not to have to leave heavy objects in front of cupboards to stop Cat opening them and risking him accessing the murky depths below deck. Also nice not to have the heavy objects as trip hazards for me.

Nice lunch. Pitta with salad and lots of olives. The into DIY Isobel mode. I restuck the drawer but this time used v strong glue, so am hoping it will hold. Lacking a hammer, I bashed the various bits together with my (deck) shoe. I tightened up the childproof, or in my case catproof, catches on the galley cupboards and fixed the bolts to the wardrobe and big cupboard, or ‘hold’ under the foredeck. Also attached two lights so I can see what is in the same two cupboards.

A couple of other people were cleaning their boats and that inspired me to remove some of the cat fur that has accumulated shockingly quickly. I just hope the local birds are grateful for the extra warmth in their nests.

This evening I’ve grappled with technology once more. There are now pix on my post (my page) for Saturday. Some appear more than once. I’ll edit. I promise. But not til I get home to technology I trust.

I like animals, colour, the Thames, reading, cooking, writing, eating, walking. I don't like bullies, butchers' shops, crowded public transport, Nigel Farage.

  1. Jaime: yup. We’re A Team. But not sailing. Engine.
    Araminta: I always think of your ricked ankle whenever I jump to land, or onto pontoon…

  2. I will, but I’m relatively new to this site and its complicated linkages. I beg forgiveness!

  3. Does your cat stand by the tray complaining if you have neglected to clear it? Mine does, and then climbs in with nose and tail both in the air and gives out a series of what I can only descibe as ‘harrumphs’ as she re-arrange the litter to her liking.

  4. Good morning!
    Val, I suddenly realised I do have a hammer, but it’s rather a big brutal one for the drawer mending exercise. I have a feeling the others are going to come apart, so I shall heed your warning and bring a light weight one next time.
    Bravo22cc, Cat comes to find me and makes all manner of noises until I get the hint. If we are both in sight of the tray he will walk backwards and forwards between it and me. But he only does this when he wants to use it.He rarely uses the tray at home, though in the cold of winter, now that he’s an old boy, he has shown a preference for the indoor facilities first thing in the morning.

  5. Drawer mending was on our Saturday adgenda too, Isobel! Glue and then reinforced with duct tape.
