It's Monday again, and I'm left wondering where the time has gone. Everything's so busy at the moment, and it's not about work either.
We're back in Rotterdam after a weekend trying to sort out leaky gutters in the cottage and faulty steering on the poor little Hennie H. With the former, we've had some luck (I hope). On Sunday morning, the rain was streaming down the kitchen walls. VallyP was not amused, so I took photos and sent them to the builder. He arrived later in the afternoon full of apologies and promptly scaled the ladder armed with some serious skirting which he has now glued into place. I am fairly confident this will at last do the trick.
As for the Hennie H, Koos thought he had fixed the broken steering, only to take it out for a test and find the same problem occurring again - it can only turn in one direction...not very helpful unless we plan to confine ourselves to a a life of "go left, my friend, go left." so it's back to the drawing board and a new plan next week. It has to be fixed soon as it is going to the yard in Zelzate at the beginning of July, and we will have a lot of work to do there.
This week, the Vereeniging will be moving to the neighbouring Haringvliet. I shall miss seeing it here, but it will be quieter for Mo and Craig there, and when they buy their own boat - something that looks to be sooner rather than later - I shall have the pleasure of moving there myself. We have a new loopplank arriving tomorrow for the Luxor, so that the one we use now (belonging to the Vereeniging - see below) can go with it. Even so, it needs some welding to make a proper support for it. Anther wee job for our Koos...
At the moment, we are comfortable on the Luxor, and I still have plenty to keep me busy here too. Below is a recent pic of its interior and a couple of nice family pics that Koos took.
And here are a few more pics of the Luxor's interior with my 'office' space and the rest of it. Still lots to be done by way of fixtures and fittings, but it is fairly cosy now with a decent shower and loo too!
Sorry about the blurriness of the kitchen pic. I should have put it on a hard surface as I didn't use the flash.
Have a good week, all.
