Busy doing...very little really

So here are at Whittlesey and Wednesday morning a very nice man came along and cut the grass on 'our garden' after which we set out the chairs, got out the Kindles and enjoyed the weather. 
Then it was a bit of ball throwing for Floyd and Fletcher followed by a visit to the town for a hair cut.  Joe's expenditure for his hair cut, £5 whilst my 'dry cut' was £14???    Still slightly less mop-like now and the job offers from local farmers to scare crows might dry up a bit as well..

 Olympic ball throwing..

Fletcher on the case..

Early yesterday morning, before the sun got up, we gave Yarwood a good wash.  The river water was clean enough to use as a rinse - prior to this the R. Nene was carrying too much silt to be of any value.

 Everything off of the roof, a bowl of soapy water and a mop and broom, wind him up and away he goes..
A bucket of river water to rinse - I was supplying the river water and encouragement

 Getting there darling, looking lovely!!

We went on the wash the decks and cabin side and I then cleaned the brass.  We also took a chance that the weather had now turned for the better and stored the chimney's away.  Hopefully that will be the last we see of them until the autumn!


  1. Isn't it lovely when someone else cuts the grass lol and you get to sit back and enjoy it lol.

    I find it very annoying that men can get their hair cut so much cheaper than us girls. Mind you I do Keith's hair. I usually head to Supercuts for my hair cuts as they are so much cheaper than most places.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  2. Hi Jo
    I used to do Joe's hair but when we moved on to the boat he brought the wrong combs/guides for his clippers so unless he wants a very close job....
    You guys have a lovely weekend as well
