Workload or load of work.

A visit to the airport this morning with the Memsahib and some of her cronies. They are about to fly to Benidorm for a week of filming fun and frolics in the sun. However, there is a more serious side.


The Memsahib is acting as a body doubling for Madge. She has done her CBT on the Mobility Scooter and so she is ready to take on the challenge..

I have been busy, the boat has been fitted out with a 33' long roof rack and the problem we were having with the chimney has been fixed. The solar panels have been mounted and the LED lights have been fitted with their own constant voltage regulator. I am looking at a reduction in the list of jobs which is almost a barometer of when we will set off on our next cruise.
