Last night 4 legs & a bottle of wine appeared outside our window, personified by Del & Al from Derwent6. I'm not sure how it happened but somehow guitars & recorders came out and a good old singsong (or shoutshout) was had by all. We didn't quite get out the spoons and saucepans, but it was a close call.. Funnily enough, as each bottle of wine slipped down, we really improved-even managing to pause in the right places whilst Graham wrestled to find B7 (a tricky little chord)! Fortunately we had no immediate neighbours as I think we were a little loud (quite a lot loud actually). One of those lovely spontaneous evenings-great company guys.
Back to reality this morning with the large problem of our leaky shower to address. Graham set to ripping out the old tiles & boy had it been leaking. The entire boat stank of cat pee!! We had been whiffing that smell intermittently over the past few weeks and pointing the finger at Daisy-yes, I have apologised to her. So, as the boat was in bits, I took the dogs out with me whilst I split some wood. There idea of help is to grab the logs and run off down the towpath with them so that I have to fetch them back (shouldn't it be the other way round?). The dogs are even having to share a chair 'cause we're so upside down. Never mind, it'll be worth it when it's done. Let's just hope poor G doesn't hurt too much in the morning.
