I don't think I've ever heard the weather forecasters admit they've no idea what the weather is going to do ... until now.
Claudia has knocked up a pair of doors to fit the holes in my wall. The wide door with the central posts will get glass panels so that Polo can look through and convince someone to let him in. [remember Puss in Shrek2 ?]
We've been finishing things off aboard 'Ora et Labora' these first weeks of the year, while waiting for this year's clients to get here through the ice. Here are the bedroom cupboards finished and ready for painting ... and doors.
With this year's clients stuck in ice instead of being here we're using the time to make some extra cupboards on the Ora et Labora. It also means we have the time to finish things off, gluing the plinths under the sofa, hanging painted doors and drawer fronts and making a hole for the stove pipe through the ceiling planking. A nice way to start the year.
I'd filled the cooling system, replaced the water pump impellor and had a date with the bridge keeper for 1000 this morning. Then the temperature dropped to minus eight.
I drained the cooling system and the pump and this morning cancelled our appointment with the bridges. It's now snowing hard again, almost up to the top of Polo's legs again.
