Back Onboard NB Bendigedig

Yesterday  we finally returned to Llangollen via Arriva Trains. The journey was fine, plenty of  room on the train although it seemed a long day. Back on the boat turned the gas and water back on and waited for the water pump to stop running..... but it didn't! No leaks anywhere just needed to open the taps as there must have been air in the system.
 
 
We scrounged some milk from Liz and Nick for a welcome cuppa as we unpacked. Later we went to get a meal at Fouzi's as the cupboards were bare. A very welcoming place to eat and a beautiful steak soon filled a very hungry pair.
 
 
Today we've been getting a Candy washer  dryer out of the boat with just two centimetres to spare on the back doorway. I ordered a new one  on the phone even though it's an online company (Appliancesonline) as I needed to discuss delivery to the boat. We just have to get the new one on the boat carefully, install it  and put the cupboard doors back on.  We've already had a text reminding me of the delivery tomorrow, and they'll let us know the time slot in the morning. There were videos on the site to help you choose which model you wanted although the dimensions of the machine were a deciding factor as it fits in the bottom of the wardrobe in a cupboard and had to get through the narrow back doors. The old machine is being taken away by them for recycling so I don't have to worry about how to get it to the local recycling centre. Hopefully all will go to plan and the washing mountain I've accumulated  will be considerably reduced.


Update:

Candy washer dryer  (GOW475) delivered and busy reducing the washing mountain. I throroughly recommend www.appliancesonline.co.uk. They informed us that is was delivery between 14.00 and 18.00 and we tracked our delivery online and the time slot reduced to 14.00 and 16.00. It arrived at 14.30 after a phone call for instructions to our location. The delivery was free too! The hard part was getting it on the boat with help from Bernie on NB Blue Diamond as Eric installed it himself.
