Nice suprise

Its been a lovely day today, the birds have been tweeting, the sun has been shining, although it did rain at one point but not for long, its been like a spring day again!

Its been a busy day today, at least I haven’t been lonely today as Angela has been in and kept me company, She too has been busy catching up with her paperwork and looking after customers, we have seen quite a few people around looking at boats for sale, its a sign that the nicer weather is on its way, Simon has almost finished the welding on the day boat, just about four inches to go and then she will go back in the water, he has also fitted a new top rudder bearing so that will be nice and smooth, Mick has been paneling around a water tank today on a private boat as well as doing some plumbing, he never gets bored here as he is always doing something different, matt has been painting Ember while Fred has been blacking, It might just be a record for Fred as he has blacked three boats today! He has also been washing engine rooms out, Steve and Aaron are back on the moorings so hopefully they will be finished soon.

I had a visit today from a chap called Tony Brown, he used to work here many years ago and now lives in the village, he is part of the Norbury historical society and they have produce a book detailing the full history of Norbury junction and its many characters over the years, I was fortunate enough to get a sneak preview and it looks fascinating, there are some excellent photos and some excellent photos of the boat yard, I even get a mention, it will be on sale soon, I will let you know when it is.

That’s it from me for today
