Curtains and floorboards

A slow drive up from London on Friday night. Cruised to Little Thetford, arriving in the dark.

Spent most of the morning replacing the curtains. Also took out the grotty plastic curtain tracks and replaced them with chunky brass rods. Here’s the before …dscf8814

I then cruised on to the Lazy Otter on the Old West, where we are booked in for blacking and some welding work in November. Had a brief chat with Kenny, and also James and Amy on NB Willow who had spent the week in the dry dock.

On returning to Ely, I decided to lift the carpet to look at the slightly squidgy floorboard near the side hatch. I rather wished I hadn’t: another job for the winter..dscf8846

Finally, I should note that when Hilary and Tony took SG up the Little Ouse in September, the engine reached its 5,000th hour. I really should sort out the tachometer, which has been  stuck for  rather a long time.
