Shop front in the summer

Sunshine and showers

The weather forecast last night showed that today was going to be sunshine and showers and it certainly wasn't wrong! One minute it the sun has been scorching hot and the next the heavens have opened and it's been like a river running down the road.

It's been one of those days. We had a burst water pipe in the wet dock this morning, which has subsequently meant digging a 8 x 4 x 4ft hole just outside the dock. Steve and I have capped the supply off so we could turn the main back on which supplies the shop. The only problem being that the girls couldn't do any washing in the laundry, so we have now rigged a hose pipe up across the yard. We'll have to go to our local plumbing shop on Monday to get some fittings and pipe to do the job properly.

It's been a busy day here at Norbury today. Five boats have gone out and as I write Mick and Billy are still showing boats out.

The girls have all had their work cut out running the shop, tearoom, cleaning the boats and of course answering the phones...

I think we are going to retire to the pub for a well earned pint :-)
