The team leader, Yannis (John) remembered me from Cleopatra 6 years ago! Interestingly, he wanted me to check I was happy with the position of the lifting slings before continuing. Only one snag.......... I had to remove our SSB antenna immediately before the lift because it was in the way! (Only took 2 mins though and is now safe on deck). No necessity to undo back-stays here because their hoist is fine.
Now its 37C and getting hotter. Fortunately there is a gentle breeze and it does help! Fridge & freezer is now off. I came up with a good 'get out of gaol card' though - have the ice-maker on now making ice to put in all drinks. e.g. Using up the last of our fresh milk and drinking it with loads of ice. Very good too!
It's not possible to stay outside in the sun for lengthy periods so I'm inside for cold drinks (no alcohol during the daytime) to keep refreshed. The work hasn't even started yet either.
Have excellent TV reception and enjoyed seeing 2 x ex-Liverpool players in Spain's winning team last night.
Sue home safe & well & enjoying playing Grandma' with the three little'uns.
