Not exactly humdrum, I'm back into home routine.
Several things happened when I was away, the sort that I would normally have dealt with. When my wife was cutting the lawn, the mower bust into flames, and there was a gas leak from the pipe that supplies the house. I'm relieved both incidents were separated by time and place.
My wife dealt with these situations, which shows that she can cope without me. That's good to know.
However, the day I arrived home I noticed something she had not; water was seeping from the central heating overflow pipe. It had dampened and stained the outside wall. In time, if not attended to, the wall would have been damaged.
Before the forecasted rain arrived this afternoon I was able to attend to several jobs, including taking rubbish to the local tip, cleaning the interior of the car, tidying the garage and stowing 'Sandpiper' there.
Sunny weather is forecast for this coming weekend, by which time the boat will be thoroughly dry. Hopefully I shall be able to touch her up with varnish and check everything to make sure all is good.
