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).
They 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!
Sadly 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!
Note: Everything on my plate was free and speed food. It has been a good SW day today.
