We have had some of the highest temperatures over the past few days, and the boat thermometer hit almost 30º today.
The marina has been busy and a lot of casual boaters have been taking their cruisers out all day. The wind picked up this afternoon and three had to have two goes at mooring up as they got caught and overshot their berth.
Next week in time for the Easter Bank Holiday, temperatures are due to plummet, and overnight will fall to single figures.
Not that this would normally worry us when we have a couple of extra blankets to put on the bed, a winter tog duvet, my medication aka Hot Flushes R Me, and the dog to keep my feet warm.
The extra blankets have been vacuum packed and are either in storage or at MSM’s wrapping up something precious and breakable.
enly winter tog duvet fell victim to the varnish episode, and the replacement mid weight one is not only smaller by being a double rather than King Size, but a bit inadequate on a chilly night.
My medication seems to be a duff box, as I have not had hot sweats at night for about a week, oh yeah, since I started the new packet. If anything, I have actually been feeling the cold!
Even Maggie is keeping someone else’s feet warm as she snuggles up with MSM at night.
Seriously though, this arrangement has worked exceptionally well for everyone as she is much more settled and we are less stressed. MSM is also glad to have the company and ‘an excuse’ to get up in the mornings!
