One fine day!

The week's weather has been awful, with the strong wind and heavy outbreaks of rain continuing. Friday, we went to the cinema to see "Gravity", a film we had to see because of the cast - Sandra Bullock and George Clooney - and because the very nature of the film meant that the 3D projection ought to be spectacular.
A medical engineer and an astronaut work together to survive after an accident leaves them adrift in space.
Frankly, I wasn't expecting it to be that good, but it was superbly done, with amazing effects, brilliant use of the 3D, and outstanding performances by Bullock and Clooney.

We woke this morning to a cold, but beautiful day. The sky was blue and almost without cloud, there was no wind. The sun was very warm. I applied rust-inhibitor to a few patches of scratched paintwork around the boat, helped rescue a lady who'd fallen off the front of her boat as they were making their way to the service platform, sucked water out of the engine room bilges with the wet-and-dry vacuum cleaner we bought for the job - SO much better than the hand pump or the rubbishy thing I cobbled together with a shower pump - and went for a walk for about an hour and a half; just along the towing path as far as bridge 22, then back along the road. It was beautiful.

We'll be back in St Albans for a few days on Thursday, so this is what the weather forecast predicts for us.

It's a niece's wedding on Saturday, so fingers crossed!
