The Trent in flood

This was The Trent this morning.  In twenty minutes the corner just before Trent lock was near impassable.  If the rain, as promised, drops today/tonight then we will see some fair flooding.

New, refreshed kitchen


So, last job to be done has started, a refreshed kitchen.  We are using the original bases but replacing the doors, work tops, handles, cooker and tiles.

The cooker is on sale at midland swindlers and not a bad price to be honest, £450.  It's got 240 lighter but we can easily get power to it, not fan assisted so it won't draw much.  Shaker doors, a new sink too, should be finished by the end of the month if not earlier.  Another Geoff Taylor job along with some other work.  A new cratch, changing door locks and making the rear hatch an entry point, general maintenance and then it's blacking in March ready for boating again and also ready for retirement in the next few years.
