The yard has asked us to move the barge on to its permanent mooring and put Carpe Diem against the other quayside, so that at some time in the future (!) they can repair the wall (don't ask, I am not happy). This is so inconvenient, we will not be alongside the barge anymore, so Pete can forget cups of tea and bacon sandwiches they will be cold before I get them to him! Seriously, we live between the two boats and now we will be back to having everything on the yacht, I thought we were moving forwards not backwards. It also makes it more difficult as everything for the barge will have to be carried along a towpath. Bearing this in mind, we quickly bought a wood burner and washing machine to load on the barge before we move. Here are a couple of pictures of the wood burner being craned on.
Oh, and here is a picture of my new toy. It is super efficient with fuel, costs £20 a year tax, no congestion charge if I go in to London and cheaper to buy new than many second hand cars. What with the compost toilet, wood burner, solar panels to come just call me the Eco-queen!!!!
