Bride's nighty

It's raining hard and has been all day.

The marina staff are doing regularly at patrols to check that all the boats are safe. If their ropes are too tight and The levels rise The boat can list. The staff will also be checking pram and cratch covers as they can sometimes fill with water.

The water levels are up and down like a bride's nighty on her honeymoon.

The rains is hammering down and the staff at the nearby mill are manning the sluices attempting to keep the water levels even.

When I get off the boat to walk Beano there can be anything from a six inch step down to a four inch step up.

Without the sluices being manned we'd be up on the grass by now.

I guess it can be rather nerve-wracking during inclement weather.

I have never heard that expression before! You gave me a laugh! Stay dry!

We've got your rain here in Mid Suffolk this morning - dark as pitch and pouring at 8am

My goodness I hadn't realised how difficult life on a boat could be. It must be quite the worry working out the levels. Take care.


Ang, I read that Richard E Grant interview about a pocketful of happiness. Flis, I'm usually smiling when I walk Beano as I enjoy it so ...
