Today has been a hard and bad tempered day. I have been virtually out of commission because I've hurt my back, being in pain does not improve my temper. Ray has been having a 'bad day' as he puts it. This involves constant misjudgments which are never his fault. any suggestion from me that we stop, that I give him a break or anything else is met with 'I'm fine'. When he trashed our chimney by going through a bridge too close to the offside I lost my temper. Oh dear.
Anyway we are safely moored at the Tame Otter, if I wasn't aching, tired and skint I would suggest a pub dinner. Cheese on toast would do me but as I have defrosted some fish I better cook it!
We don't have far to go tomorrow which is good because there is rain forecast
