Today’s blog is by Stephen – the cats paws are sore from the last 2 days of typing.


I’m nearly 100% ok today – Anne was in bed most of the day but is getting better.


After a lazy start (not wanting to over do it), I started to defrost the fridge and fit a new seal. After giving the fridge a really good clean, there were still some stains inside it. Anne pointed out it was made of GRP – the same as the hull. Hence we decided to t-cut the fridge (to get rid of the stains). It only seemed natural then to polish and finally wax inside of the fridge. We will definitely win the shiniest fridge competition in the marina!


Yoyo joined in by jumping on the fridge lid during t-cutting and getting her paws covered in t-cut mixture. We now need to train her to get covered in wax and run around the boat.


Anne helped by getting up, unpacking the vacuum cleaner and trying it out. Koshka didn’t seem too bothered by it but Yoyo ran away. We bought a really small cyclone type vacuum cleaner but it was a bit too powerful as it sucks our rugs up!
