My adventures as first mate Sally renovating and living on barge Number 10 with captain Dan
~ Wednesday, April 25 ~

mini post to update on this weeks rainy progress


No photos of past work as of yet but will becoming this weekend via dan’s notebook. promise!

Dan has been busy this week plumbing in the washing machine and moving the bathroom area to a different spot. Excited to have a working washing machine :)

We had a lovely weekend and I cooked us some scrummy food in the raeburn and we did lots of relaxing and celebrating my completion of my dissertation. On Sunday night we ordered some car cigarette chargers for our phones and laptops which we can connect to the battery bank to save starting up the generator every time we want to charge our phones. A fellow boater spent ages helping us choose the right chargers and connectors and some have already arrived via ebay. We considered bidding on a 10w solar panel but after much deliberation we lost internet connection when we finally decided to bid. I am unsure whether it is false economy to buy smaller ones to tide us over when we could just use the money towards a larger wattage panel. Fate decided that we should wait.

Lots of interest in number 10 by people passing by and Dan has been showing lots of people the work he has done, very proudly :)

Expecting more wet weather over the weekend, river is already very high so dan will beon rope patrol and hopefully if weather chills next week we will get some steering work done.
