More varnishing and vanishing!

Maggie has had yet another restless night and we are both shattered.
MSM offered to have her for the day and overnight to give us a break, and I shall be forever grateful.
Something is going on in the early hours to make her react this way and we need to get to the bottom of it. I could do nothing to console, soothe or reassure her last night.
Hubby and I went our separate ways today, and after lunch settled down to finishing off the windows and taking down the last of our double glazing.
Of course in so doing, the sticky residue remained, so out with the petrol and a refresher coat of varnish.
Hubby put the net curtains up this morning and they look pretty cool.

The interior of the boat is looking really good now, so I shall be taking some pictures tomorrow (hope it’s sunny to give you the full warm effect) and posting them here.

Today, as with most Thursdays, has been filled with challenge posts. With our trip yesterday, I have been playing catch up with Tuesday’s as well, so not much originality!

Work in the other basin has continued with some serious bashing of piling since around 8.30 am. It does not look as if it is going all that well. The posts are not going in and the continuous Thump, Thump, Thump of the crane hammer can be heard all round the Avenue and up the High Street. Strange how Maggie isn’t too bothered about that.
Also, looking at the artist’s impression below for the ‘development opportunity’, in reality
there appears to be an extra row of uprights for pontoons and subsequent fingers. It’s difficult to judge when you have no mass to work with but there doesn’t seem to be a lot of turning space.
Talking to some leisure visitors today, it would appear too that it is not only residents pulling out, as cheaper deals are being offered elsewhere.
There’s quite a lot going on.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
