The rain started later than originally forecast, but I looked at the Met Office radar on the website, and could see what was coming this way. Even when the main band of rain passed, it's been a mix of sunny spells and torrential downpours. I was so chilly this morning I gave in and lit the fire. A few boats have been past, with plenty of wet weather gear on show.
With nothing planned to do today I was in no rush to get up. During the morning I gave the shower cubicle a good clean, with particular attention to the grouting. I used an old toothbrush to give it a good scrub. This afternoon I turned my attention to the well deck. I moved everything that's kept there out of the way, washed all the paintwork and the windows, and scrubbed the deck. The mat had a good beating during one of the sunny spells. During another dry interval I walked up to Cosgrove with a bag of rubbish.
The only other useful thing I've done is write the intro to tomorrow's boat test. As it's a Crick boat I've already seen it, if only fairly briefly, but I know enough to make a start!
