Monday 25th February 2013

Well after many hours of painstaking fiddly work I finally got my 55-200 lens working again. There were some broken parts I had to repair and unfortunately the lens is now permanently stuck in auto focus mode, but I can live with that. I think I am very lucky to have it working again and that I didn’t break my leg or hip during the fall, although I am very sore today. I also fixed the arm on my glasses, they don’t fold any more but you can’t have everything.

The weather was perfect again today and we decided to go boating at five o’clock but unfortunately the wind came up and we cancelled it in favour of one o’clock start tomorrow. We just have to get it past Cookie. Today we unloaded all our non perishable food for the year and it was quite a big job with all hands on deck it took several hours.
