We are very impressed with the Tesco delivery service, we received a text this morning confirming delivery time, then the driver rang later giving a precise time. We met him in the pub car park and helped him deliver a very big order to the boat. He said they have a 6 minute time frame to deliver, we just about made it. I gave him a tip, not sure if that is the go?
It is also very easy to order home delivery as when you go online they have a list of everything we have ordered from Tescos for the last 3 months, it is linked to the club card, now for a confirmed Luddite like myself I am very impressed. Of course the most important thing is I don't have to go shopping, I detest it with a passion.
Back to boaty bits, it is pouring down with rain for a change but we had to move as the Navigation pub is shut on Mondays, we are now back at Queens Head so we can go and sample some Theakstons Old Peculiar later. We don't mind moving in the rain as we have both got the u-beaut wet weather gear, my old Ambo hat keeps my head dry so its all good.
I manged to get another coat of varnish on the cratch yesterday in the sunshine, I had to sand back the rain damaged coat first. Also polished one side of the boat.
As it is still raining I can now get stuck into my book, I am now on fourth book which is just amazing, in my old busy working life about 1 a year was it.
So in summing up our narrow boat life........
Late nights and late starts with no alarm clock
Sampling pub life
Lost a lot of weight
Lots of walking with the dogs
Constant change of scenery
Eating better, no frozen food, mostly fresh
Meeting lots of different types of people, 95% nice
Easy house work
My god it rains a lot.......but then again it is England!
And as I finish the last sentence the sun comes out!
