A quieter day

Sheila had a hair appointment this afternoon, but apart from that we had no specific commitments, so were able to have a lazy start to the day.

This morning was spent changing the cruising mooring lines for the short marina ones and seeing if I had a lead with a round blue plug on one end and a normal 13 amp trailing socket on the other. I need it to test the isolation transformer output. I don't have one so will pick up a socket in Derby tomorrow.

(Yes, I know that you shouldn't have a 16 amp rated plug on one end of the lead and a 13amp socket on the other without including a fuse, but this is purely for testing purposes. I don't have a multimeter, which would be the other approach. Any plug inserted into the socket will have a fuse in it, naturally.)

We popped into Waimaru to check that all was well after John and Nev's somewhat hasty departure; it was.

After lunch, John rang to ask me to turn off the gas cylinder, so I nipped back to do that whilst Sheila was away.

Since then, we've had a quiet afternoon; we went into the lodge to put a couple of pans back that Sheila had rewashed and to collect a box of latex gloves I'd left in there.

Tomorrow, it's into Derby to get my eyes seen to. I've no idea how I'll feel after, so don't be surprised if there is no, or a very brief blog. If necessary, Sheila has editing rights here so can blog on my behalf if it comes to it.

Hope all goes well tomorrow Bruce. I will think of you and send positive vibes your way.

Thanks, folks, I'll see how it goes...


And thanks to John, who's just rung to say that there's the lead I need in a cupboard in Waimaru.

All the best
