It don’t work properly.
Out on our final walk this evening, we were going to go snappy armed.
Hubby and I put in the batteries and …….. nothing.
We put in a new set of batteries…………….. nothing.
Eventually, we managed to push the flip down lid holding the batteries into a firmer position, and were able to take these inside………..
and this one of the full moon from our helm………….
but when we came back inside again, no, the damn thing wouldn’t stay on.
Being firm believers that if you have to force it you’re doing it wrong, it’s going back tomorrow.
Our camera has snapped one snap too many and something inside it has snapped.
We were trying to take a picture of the duckling (we think) we saved with Mummy Duck, and the message on the screen was ‘Card Protected’.
Hubby had a look, juggled the slider thingie on the chip, put it back in, and tried again.
We accessed the chip on the computer and all was well, so we guessed the chip was finally full and went out to buy a new one the following day.
We were megga peeved to read the same message when we tried to take a picture.

Just a few days ago, we noticed our neighbours 2 boats down walking along the pontoon laden down with clothes fresh from the cleaners.
We are not nosy people and respect our fellow boaters’ privacy, but we chat with everyone, and have a laugh and a joke on many an occasion.
I am not one to take medication unless it is absolutely necessary or unavoidable. Actually I am very lucky insomuch as it is rare that I am ill, but when I am, I AM!
Before I moved back to Dorset (pre Hubby days), I had worked for a company for over 5 years and never had a day off sick. In short succession I went down with chickenpox (I was 32) and then a bout of depression put me off work for 6 weeks.
For a change, we had boiled eggs for breakfast (no toast soldiers as we don’t have a toaster, but bread and butter was OK).
Actually, Maggie had been poorly in the night and eggs have always settled her tummy.
We don’t have any egg cups, so Hubby improvised by cutting down the egg carton.
It made me think of my childhood, and the novelty Noddy egg cup I had, his blue felt hat complete with little bell on the end kept the egg warm until I came downstairs to eat it.
It’s hard to believe that we have been on the boat for a year.
That’s 52 weeks, 364 days to the day (Tuesday) or 365 to the date tomorrow (29th July).
I still remember that first day, waiting for Hubby to come round the marina entrance as I stood at the end with the camera and the dog. None of my pictures came out.
He’d had one to one tuition on the journey and it was money well spent.
Hubby then drove his instructor back which was only twenty minutes by road, but three and a half hours by river.
