What a difference a week makes…

Well it is certainly a change from last Sunday, no snow (yet).

Karen is off visiting people in Devon so I have had a weekend to my own doing boat jobs (greasing the drive shaft, changing the fuel filter, cleaning the sink pipes..).

Nik and Gemma came by yesterday in the last leg of yet another dramatic boat move. Burst water hose coming out of Clifton lock left them on the weir. Hose fixed they arrived in Oxford last night in time for Nik to do a Kareoke gig at the Hollybush. An entertaining evening of local singers.

Sunday morning at Folly Bridge starts with a steady flow of rowers up the Thames, the comes the race practice in groups. At least they seem to have managed to not hit the boat yet, that comes later in the day, also when the day boat hirers come out from the bridge who can’t row. No men on bikes with magaphones shouting across the boat yet – maybe I’ll get one and stand outside one of the colleges shouting, when they are trying to work. But as Karen says – we can always move.

Apart from that it is very quiet moored here, we’ll move off later in the week.
