Andrew had the Monday off, in expectation that we would not have hired the vehicle the previous Monday and would do it then instead.. And anyway, after 500 miles the previous day going to see 14 901, he thought we could both do with an "easy" time. He can be so considerate. So we wandered in to Rowsley with the intention of getting "Libby" back into the shed.

After the exertions of last week, I am pleased that this week has been a little less demanding. Indeed, as Andrew was away with partner and their child for the weekend, Steph and I took the van up to our daughter's in Darlington on Saturday, taking up a wheelbarrow and a piano stool and returning with a vacuum cleaner and a wardrobe - not a bad swap really.

I teased the readers with a hint of something happening this week and aside from those scurrilous souls who suggested that we were acquiring 08s or other such shoddy shunters I think we managed to keep most guessing. (Oh, and for those who don't know our views on 08s and their ilk, see "Of 08s and trawler engines, here - otherwise, read on).
