Laura and Summer came to see us today and we spent the mooring preparing the boat in readiness.
We had to let the fire go out as it is too hot for little fingers. Despite not having added fuel to it since early evening yesterday, we had to douse it with water to put out the coals and lay wet cold towels onto the cast iron to take the heat out of the metal.
I made some leak and potato soup for lunch and also a Bakewell Tart as Laura had put in a special request for her favourite home bake.
We had a fun afternoon of play and waved them both off before it got dark.
We always feel a bit flat when visitors leave and I like to keep myself busy. I relit the fire and then set about updating this blog.
