We haven’t killed each other yet!

End of week two: engine dismantled, majority of parts cleaned, spares ordered and due for delivery Monday and exhaust following in two and a half weeks!

We have also got new cushions for the main dining area in the saloon – as the originals could not take the stress of someone (I shall remain nameless!)  constantly sitting on them!  We contacted Hawthorne Upholstery in Hull and they have done a sterling job for us.

Steve still hasn’t got out of the habit of an early finish on Friday with a glass of wine (and today I am even joining him!)

I must admit it has all gone swimmingly so far! He cooks breakfast each morning and the last 16 eggs have all been double yolkers – what a run of chance is that – he will be so disappointed to crack open a normal egg when we eventually get one! It has been really good to get back into eating breakfast each day and not snacking on crisps all morning!

I think it might be starting to sink in that he is no longer employed as we spent all morning today doing a little bit of grocery shopping – if he was working we wouldn’t have been able (or inclined) to “waste” all morning on something so mundane.
