Just call me Mrs Bouquet

Hi, nice to see you again.

For Mrs Bouquet read Mrs airs and graces here.

It's been a busy week and for most of it I've been firmly attached to my trusty grey bucket.  Note to self "NEVER buy a boat that's been moored under a tree for the past year!"



and After:- 

Every inch of the boat has now been washed and/or scrubbed, but polishing will have to wait as there's a lot of rust spots that need treating.  It's a real shame that it's been neglected for so long that the rust has set in but we've decided that this boat won't be a "shiny boat" like Fizzi. There's just so much surface area to keep clean and polish that we'd never have time for anything else, so as long as it's clean that'll have to do.

Roger's had a busy week as well. He's finished the kitchen, reconfigured the heating pipes to get the Webasto working properly and put up the roller blinds. He's also ripped out the dodgy toilets and installed nice new ones. The communal facilities here on our moorings are really nice but there's nothing better than having your own loo is there?

It's not been all work and no play though. We've managed a trip on the ferry into town for a bit of shopping and had a nice meal out at The Cottage pub just across the marina.

We've been sitting out on the deck this afternoon taking in the sunshine and watching the world go by and with views like these I can really understand why there's a huge waiting list for residential moorings here in Bristol.

That's all for now, have a good week and I'll see you soon.
