Friday wasn’t the best of days starting with my epoxy poisoning creeping up on me again. For awhile I had quite a nice panda eye look happening, not something I’d recommend when you’ve got a photographer scheduled to take your picture for the paper! I’m sure it went ok in the end… till I got back to the shed to find some very sorry looking expressions.
Up till this point the whole team was on standby to finally install the beautiful new Yanmar engine. Mechanic ready to go, forklift in position, gearbox we were waiting for due to arrive 10am sharp etc only… you guessed it, the gearbox didn’t arrive. It’s amazing how far off track the gearbox managed to find itself on a simple overnight delivery! Definitely not one of the better days.
So to take my mind off it all I did something 16 years olds often do on a Friday night and headed off to the movies. Three hours of painful action scenes later, my frustration was directed at the fact that the heroines hair and makeup managed to remain perfect throughout.
Saturday was a lot more fun, after a hard mornings work scrubbing the shed completely spotless we finished up with a shiny coat of pink paint on the hull. Too late to change my mind so it’s lucky I love it!!
