Put on the back burner

We decided to put off our boating friend as the weather today has been horrendous.
Serious rain and heavy winds, or even serious winds and heavy rain, have been pelting us since the early hours, and although it is a relatively short distance from her basin to ours, she would have got SOAKED, twice.

Being in her mid seventies, this would definitely not have been a good idea, so we gave her a call first thing this morning. She was perfectly agreeable, and happy to postpone her curry evening until Friday.

In the meantime, we are experiencing a sense of deja vu as the boats on the river rise steadily, the gantries stretch to horizontal and the banks between us begin to disappear.
The water level has risen 2.1 metres in 12 hours, and is still rising.
Good job we had a full maintenance day today………… emptied loo, topped up water and fuel, plenty of grub, milk, teabags and coffee, not to mention of course our wellies and fluorescent yellow suits!


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
