Things to do - always things to do!

We've at last settled to the idea that this period before we overwinter at home is the time for preparing for proper cruising next year.  Unrealistically, I at least had expected to be able to cruising for longish periods this month and probably October, too, but that is clearly not to be.  At the moment, there are always things to do.  We installed new 240v lights inside the boat yesterday, collected from home over the weekend, only to realise we had no light-bulbs for them.  Returning from a shopping trip for those, we started to vacuum clean, and the vac died noisily, so we have to go shopping again today.

One major problem at present is the inadequacy of our Internet connection.  The installation of the new router and antenna we bought has been hindered by the loss of a very short but all-important cable, and our inability to decide where best to fix the antenna mast - and to find the right mast for the job.  We hope to get that sorted today, and then we won't have to rely on the marina wi-fi, which is good at times, but very unreliable.

So, we do... things! Patiently!
