Today’s weather mixed
Not much for The Cook to blog about so here’s one he prepared earlier from The Driver
Hettys winter maintenance and improvements.
She is getting an old girl now with a few wrinkles creaks and groans (No not The Cook).
I have spent a little time getting her back up to standard
1. A sliding catch on the large drawer which occasionally bounced open…best brass of course.
2 The original plastic knife and fork drawer has been gaffered back together too many times ….. I decided to make a new plywood drawer with new runners and surprisingly with the original utensil tray fitted its was no heavier than the original and now bomb proof.
3. The light over the kitchen sink has always been a bit dim even more so since one of the mini fluorescent tubes gave up the ghost . A trawl through EBay located a suitable LED lamp A surprise from Poland and postage free.
4 The clock over the sink had a loud tick ✅ tock and as it needed a new battery I located one on eBay with no tick and 2 batteries which can be hard to find anyway …Result.
4 The Cook has always commented about toilet smells . I have purchased a toilet duck and fixed it just by the flush spout . Now a lovely odour permeates the bathroom.
5 We are heading into the Alps this trip.. New snow tyres have been fitted.
6 Last but not least a window vacuum was purchased so no soggy cloths or damp chamois any more…Just a light buzzing and tip the water down the sink …It’s fabulous.
Plus it’s got a fitting just the right size for our Georgian window panes at home …The window cleaner sacked us as it was too much work for him. So it’s paid for itself due to 20 years of his fees not spent.
Hettys annual service and MOT included a Track Rod end …Breaks and a new bearing
More tomorrow as The Driver has plumbed The Hymer factory into Miss Sat Nav .. Off our route but Hey Ho …🤪
