Waiting

Home » Blog » Waiting for a delivery

Had a slight technical hitch recently — I seem to have lost at least 2 blog posts which I thought I'd posted and they don't seem to be here (or maybe I'm going senile!) Anyway to bring you all back up to speed — our lovely new benches were delivered a few weeks ago and we were all set to build them up....until we discovered that a duck has nested in the gap between the wall and the pile of bench bits. So, not wanting to disturb her, we're patiently waiting for her to hatch them before we can build the rest of the benches, and waiting...and waiting....how long does it take for duck's eggs to hatch? She seems to have been on their for weeks — so the conversation in the office now is how long do we wait before we try to explain to her that she's fluffed it up (so to speak). Not only will we all be devastated if they don't hatch — she 's now attracted quite a fan club of moorers who discretely check she's OK on a regular basis. Maybe if they don't hatch I'll have to buy in dome duckings as well......

DO make sure your boat has a CO alarm, DO check the batteries, DO respond if it goes off — open the windows and doors and get out of the boat. DON'T leave ashes from your fire inside the boat — even as they cool they can be giving off...
