    yes it is noticeable :( I suppose it depends on what you can live with. I didn't report a small scratch in my hall glazing last year as I liked the old fella fitting it. In fact I had forgotten about it.  Looking good though .

    I think you will always notice the mark.  I would.   I like the outdoor shower idea!.

    My boat conveniently featured in a magazine when she was built 4 years ago.  I bought her last August.

    I hope your game turns out to be more fun than you expect.

    Dip in the hot tub, sounds so relaxing.

    I dont live on her, lots of people do live on theirs.  She is just for trips out.

    Morning Friday again so nice booked a couple of days off over the next couple of weeks but also got last week of Aug off so need a break. Decided not to go home to Denmark does not feel safe really miss my family so much but I can go later in the year. Wanted a week to chill here when work is all done. 

    Re the work it’s getting there. Flooring in the kitchen is down and the worktops are on. Fridge and washing machine arrived today but cannot be plumbed in. Plumber might come and do the sink but more likely Monday. 

    Wood floor is down bar the hall way which is being done today. Kitchen fitter back from holiday so coming over tomorrow. Painter dropping sample off Sunday really not sure what colour in kitchen. Any ideas lovely people I’ll add some photos.
