That bitter East wind has been relentless today, the temperature is in fact around 7 degrees but the wind chill must be minus something, it hits your face and it makes it feel raw, there is no escaping from it if you are unfortunate enough to be outside, given the cold conditions I reckon that everyone that has not needed to move any where has stayed put with there feet up by a roaring log burner, I know that's what I will be doing tonight, its a shame really as the nights are now drawing out and we should all be enjoying the evenings outside rather than being stuck indoors!
Its been a funny old day, not much traffic about, we have had a couple of hire boats return early, only a hand full of boats on the wharf for services and a relatively quiet day in the shop, office and tea room, the lads have been busy though, Steve on the trip boats doing wood work, Bernard has been grinding a hull in the dry dock for most of the day and Richard has been paint the boat in the wet dock, we have had a new chap start today, Alan his name is and he has replaced Mick (Mr handbag) Mick decided that he wasn't enjoying the job as he thought he would so left on Saturday, shame I as quite like the chap! Any way the new addition to the Team is Alan and he will be taking over Fred's duties when he retires (eventually)
That's it from me for today
Off home to a nice roaring fire
