That'll be a day of just rest for me. Ok I know I'm retired but I find myself doing stuff all the time which I like. However 600 miles in the last 4 days plus some DIY'ing at no2 sons place in London has made sitting here on a warm boat listening to the heavy and persistent rain not too much of a chore.
I was out and about yesterday as my nearby neighbour now Mandy had an alternator problem so I dropped off her genny so she could keep the batteries charged up depending on the speed of response of RCR - they did diagnose a dead alternator (took them two visits) and replaced it this morning so she could cruise back before this rain came in.
There are some jobs I could do but its nice to just relax a bit..... normal service will be resumed asap I'm sure .
I should note for my dear diary look backs we came on board as Rachel is at a conference in Telford for three days - our mooring is about half an hour away so it saved the Uni a few quid in hotel accommodation and we get three days (evenings) on the boat.
I drove through Newport yesterday and as it is the closest town to us here now it'll be a nice place to explore - it certainly looks nice with a decent high street.
I was out first thing (for me) before the rain trying out my DSLR Sony camera with a Ebay 300mm telephoto lens. I'm still not sure, I think I prefer the superzoom bridge cameras but I'll persevere.
I did get a welcome yesterday as I was unlocking the back doors a Kingfisher swooped in and perched on my neighbours boat bow - obviously not long enough for a photo but I'll get one.
