Iffy WIFI again

It has taken me nearly all day to get on to the internet, and when I finally manage it, something crops up and I’ve had to stop what I’m trying to do.

We’ve had a quiet day really, Hubby had a blood test, we did a bit of shopping, and then tempted fate by washing the boat. Hubby had noticed our cratch covers were a bit yukky, so there was nothing for it but to take them off, spread them out on the pontoon finger, and de-mould them with the brush (yep, that big fat yellow thing that is so photogenic in some of my pictures).
Digital CameraThey have come up exceptionally well, though it was a bit of a game putting them back on as it required my assistance.
By acting as some kind of tent pole in the bow, I held my arms aloft so that Hubby could snap and bungee the canvas back into position. It wouldn’t have been so bad if they were dry, but they were dripping wet, and it was like having a fully clothed shower.
Still, it’s another job jobbed towards Winter and marked off our To-Do list.

Whilst I have been trying to access emails and my blog, Hubby has been patiently fishing off our bow.
He bought a small rod last year and has finally got it out of the wrapper. He intended to do some fishing when we were at Comberton a little while ago when the lads caught the pike, but he couldn’t find his shiny spinner, which as it happened was in the car here at the marina.
He made sure he had it for our next trip, and on the way back, caught a very pretty roach, but I wasn’t quick enough with the camera.

Not so today!
Success was his and by using a combination of cheese, bread and rice for bait, he landed a beauty!
fish-caught-20-9 fish-side-view-20-9Sadly this little dace wasn’t exactly sufficient for a meal, so we put him back. Besides, we’d had chilli earlier (salad for me, rice for Hubby), so it was just as well!

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.

    You are not alone in your internet woes… I’ve been trying to access my main email for hours because I get ebills and intended to pay them… don’t know what is going on with my main account, but I can’t get emails to open, therefore, I can’t pay bills… very annoying & not the first time it’s happened.
