Shop front in the summer

Early start today

Because of staff holidays, days off and the fact that it is half term I started the day off at 6.30 am today to make sure that I was ahead of the game before it all kicked off at 8.30,so this wont be a long post today! As I have said before, Tuesday and Wednesday can be very busy for Norbury as it is when people have their days off so today we have the return of Pam, Pam used to work here full time up until she retired about 18 months ago and now she comes in to help out when we are a bit short on the ground, its lovely to have her smiling face back, albeit only for a few hours;Rob the new engineer started today, so make sure you give him a very warm welcome when you see him around the yard.

I was expecting it to be a very busy day today, Victory went out first thing this morning with a family on it for the day, up to the Wharf Tavern at Goldstone for lunch, the weather has been kind to them and the sun has shone for most of the day, a tad on the chilly side compared to the last few days but none the less a nice day, It hasn't really been a busy day, given how light we have been on the ground everything has gone tickety boo with no major drama's Rob was thrown in at the deep end (not literally) and has done an engine service on a vintage engine in a boat today and has been getting to grips with life at Norbury, Freddie has given a third coat of blacking to the boat in the dock and has been strimming the grass up the moorings, Lee has been painting on the boat in the wet dock and Pam and Jay have been kept busy with a steady flow of customers all day, Steve has been doing some work on one of the brokerage boats that needed a bit of tidying up.

That's it from me today.
