Phew, what a scorcher!

It's hard to believe that just a couple of weeks ago we were still lighting the fire & I was wearing a winter coat & gloves then today I had to dig the parasol out so Soona & I could spend much of the day doing this......
Sid seems to have cottoned on to the fact that the boat is home & the area next to the boat is the garden, he has been hopping on & off all day quite happily although Soona gets a bit cheesed off as he follows her around like an annoying little brother, occasionally jumping on her wanting to play for which she usually rewards him with a clip round the ear, he remains undaunted & always goes back for more.
come out & play....

follow my leader !

We haven't been totally idle, the boat has had a wash & we have made an insect screen for the hatch for warm evenings as I'm not fond of mossies etc & positively hate moths, irrational I know especially as I don't mind butterflies...

We did get the gunwhales painted yesterday just in time for the dandelions to release their seeds & the wet paint to be speckled with them, fortunately they were easily brushed off this morning.
Not so easily brushed off though was the damage done as 'Humber Pride' went passed, she is a commercial oil tanker & didn't seem to slow down much resulting in us dropping about a foot then bouncing back up causing the ( we thought!) carefully placed fender to remove some fresh paint,
oh well, nothing that some sanding & a bit more paint won't sort.

Moving up to Jolly Miller tomorrow & will probably stay a couple of days as there is a large car boot on Sunday that might be worth a visit, you can't beat a good rummage ;)
