And what about Lawrance and me? Well, while WRT is getting a complete make-over, we have temporary accommodation in a caravan.

For a month we will live in a space the size of our saloon plus dinette. With a 40 litre fresh water tank, a grey water tank we have to empty every so often, a cassette toilet with a tank for flushing we have to fill every so often. And “every so often” means: at the most inconvenient moment. Just when you want to make tea in the morning you run out of fresh water. And when you empty the sink after doing the dishes, the grey water tank will be full, and suddenly there is rice all around the caravan. No, I won’t mention the moment the toilet flush tank is empty. Telephone signal is bad, as is the TV, and we don’t have wifi. And the worst thing? No solid fuel stove. In fact, basically no heating at all, except for our small electric bathroom heater.

But we have a beautiful garden, and a nice drive way. And if it wasn’t for some trees, we could see the shed WRT is in.

So far we spent our time visiting WRT, and going out for dinner with Ann and Mick, who got stuck once again because one of the locks of the Audlem Flight was closed for maintenance.

Guess who got the double portion?

Except for the second day (when it was raining, and grey) we’ve had sunny days so far. And freezing cold nights as well.

Only three more weeks to go…
