Our return to Chester was delayed by a day. The sunny weather was perfect for motoring but urgent repairs were needed when our Bilge pump stopped working (this protects the engine bay from flooding) so we had to put our plans on hold.
We managed to buy a new pump at the chandlers at Barbridge Junction and then moved along to the sanitary station at Calverley to fit it, as we’d ordered a delivery of coal from the coalyard opposite.
While waiting for the coal delivery I finished off the scarf I’ve been knitting and instead started to try to teach myself to crochet. A lot more practice is required.
