Timed almost to perfection.

.... that is getting back onto the boat.

We are privileged to have access to house and boat and while the house is undergoing a full repaint and re-carpet  I am back aboard NB Percy. Got here late afternoon and set to with the vacuum and other cleaning products. I had called at the co-op for tea after having a lovely lunch at the Yew tree in Ednaston  - on the way to Ashbourne with Ashbourne being the gateway to the Peak district. We did reflect on how lucky we are to live where we do..... for the time being !

Now don't go thinking it is an easy life because to get he house the the paint ready state it is took an enormous effort that included gutting and fitting a complete new bathroom along with all four walls wall to ceiling tiled.... now that was a job. I also took out built in wardrobes and made good with studding, plasterboard and finally plastering - it is not such a dark art.

Last weekend we were out rebuilding a wall and yesterday I was tidying up where we removed a large shed last year with a rotavator, feather edging board, and 1,000 litres of bark !

So yes I am looking forward to a few days rest before we start again that will see such homely locations as Derby, London, Chichester, Leeds and France  - all before mid June..... and there is work to fit in between all that !

PS - had to light the fire, I need to be warm !
