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!
