Yea it worked, census all done and dusted. Many, many thanks go to Pip, Mick Nb Oleanna and Barbara for their help and advice. A last phone call yesterday and we struck lucky as the lady who took the call had already dealt with the same problem with other boaters. So we finally got FS registered to premises with postcode and an access code was sent by email to Ian this morning. The form has now been completed and sent. With any luck the next census in 10 years time won't be as stressful.
A few days of good weather got Ian out doing more of the touch up on FS's paintwork. With us being in the swing bridge mooring it was so easy to push across and do the offside. He really wanted to slap some bitumen on the bow so my idea of pushing the bow towards the near side whilst leaving the stern tied on the offside worked a treat.
Oh and the swans are at it again. Their mating has once again born fruit. Last year's nest was once again picked, although this wasn't their first choice. They originally started building right by the electric box but no way would we allow that as Ian would have been attacked every time he went to feed the meter! So the first egg has been laid. We now wait and see how many more will join it.
And our Cob lawn mower keeping the bank by FS nicely mown.
