Quick update


Last night, after spending a couple of hours down at Darley, I  blacked another bottom panel and creosoted all the shuts down the one side and it’s starting to look quite smart again. 

Dawn came down to me later and brought the dogs with her.  Bruce our chocolate Labrador and our new addition to the family, Scruff a cross Patterdale terrier, who took to the boat like a duck to water. 

Bruce has never been a boat dog in as much when we are out and about he just sits or sleeps in the hold.  What Dawn wanted was a dog that will sit on the cabin top and run up and down the top planks and it looks like Scruff fits the bill perfectly.  Having said that, he did sing us a very merry song when we went to bed and left him in his cage in the kitchen.  It only lasted for about 5 minutes though, and it was his first night in a strange environment, so hopefully he will get used to it and quieten down over the next few days. I'll let you know, so till then, as always
Don't bang 'em about
Blossom.
