The met office rain radar showed the rain would reach us by 4am and it did. Gentle at first then steadily getting heavier as the morning wore on.
We rose early surprisingly enough but the need to go where no one can go for you became too urgent to remain in bed. I used to laugh at mum crossing her legs when she sneezed but nowadays I don't find it funny any more.
We pottered about for for a few hours then thought we need to do something and not sit about all day so Chris decided it was a good time to give the galley its summer clean (the spring clean already done). AmyJo has lovely golden beech worktops and these need to be treated every so often with an oil to keep them waterproof. We do this every couple of months and were now due to be re done. It does not take long and we feel well worth the effort.
|Chris sets to with the wax oil that seals the worktops. They look great when done and water beads easily on them.|
|I was working so hard the camera could not keep up|
|Next door's dog peeps out under the canopy to keep an eye on me|
|Chris decided this was the best way to photograph me without getting wet|
|Not a soul about in this weather and no boats moving either|
The rain has finally eased as I type but its too late to move though a few boats have gone past. Tomorrow we move again, we need to do a shop, so Northwich needs to stock their shelves as Chris will be on a mission, bags in hand (for me to lug back no doubt).
