Cagliari: The Art of Toilets
We have had a week of all sorts of weather; lovely warn sunny days, wet and gale force winds; drizzle; cold; and more sunshine! We spent Friday sat around waiting for strong winds that were forecast – they never came!
The start of the week we did the washing, which dried
super fast – with sun and lots of wind. On Tuesday it was art class again
for Anne. This time she worked on a picture of boats anchored in
Stephen meanwhile has spent the week in the toilet. Well actually trying to move the toilet pump to a new location. Servicing the pump has proved problematic, however with Anne’s help we are now experts in exactly how to rebuild one including the exact torque required on all screws. It really was a case of 7th time lucky. The pump is now fitted and not leaking, however there is still the remedial wood work to box it in its new home. The wardrobe has been stripped bare ready for the new carpet lining – no more “eau de toilet” smells in the wardrobe!
We were rudely awoken on Thursday night by a fisherman. He was mussel collecting in his wooden dinghy round our boat. When he bopped Wanda we got up and switched on our super bright deck light to ruin his night vision and let him know we were now awake. He moved away rather rapidly.
As we have not socialised for a while, we had Pyxis
Anne’s 2nd master piece. Can we retire on the proceeds of this picture yet?
Stephen’s 1st attempt at a water colour.
