Trumpton comes a calling.

We have had a weekend in Northampton, thanks again to Jane and Paul for putting us up!

This has allowed us the time to de winterise the systems, filling up once again the water and getting the central heating going in order to air out the boat.  She has survived the winter really well.  Fingers crossed, apart from a wash and polish, the boat is ready to go.  Just a shame we are not!  Still, the old knee, ( or rather the new one!) is slowly recovering, but is not as yet ready for the rigours of boating.

So, next visit, all being well, we can commence the "Big clean".

Arriving at the boat today we were greeted by the fire brigade.  Now as our smoke alarm decided to pack in a few weeks ago, we readily agreed to a survey.  Upon completion, we were presented with two new smoke alarms, as well as two for carbon monoxide, so well chuffed.  A big thank you to the brigade.

Once again, the dehumidifier has come into it's own. A brilliant bit of kit and well worth the investment. We would not be without it for use after the winter lay up.

We hope to return over the next bank holiday weekend in early may in order to bring a shine back to the old girl, weather permitting!  And hopefully, sort out a problem with the radio, which we think is down to the aerial.  As the cable is routed from the roof and behind the panelling, prepare for some expletives methinks........
