Now this is getting silly!

We are just coming to the end of the third week of Kantara's shower room refit - and it was originally scheduled to take just two weeks. I phoned Roy this morning, and he said (he didn't promise) that it would be done by the end of the coming week. That'll be four weeks away from the boat, when we only anticipated two, and we're not happy.

Roy has had some setbacks, it's true. He had to send back the shower tray twice because the suppliers delivered the wrong one. And the shower door was very late arriving. Add to that the bad weather we've had, when he has to transport wooden panels to the boat from his workshop across the yard, and had some exterior work to do on the boat (cutting new drainage holes and plugging old ones), and it's not surprising that there has been a delay, but it has been very frustrating for us.

It wouldn't have been so bad if the weather had allowed me to do some gardening here at home... home in St Albans, that is! The coming week looks as if it might have some dry spells, so perhaps I'll be able to get out there and get some work done.

With the sunny skies appearing this morning, Grace and I went out for lunch and a stroll in Ashridge Park...

...and then on to nearby Bluebell Woods.

This really lifted our spirits!

Well, we're deep into May now, and meteorologists were promising us the coldest, wettest May on record... it's not looking that bad yet. Let's just hope that we'll be able to cruise in sensible weather as soon as we return. After all, that's what boats are built for!
