12th March 2017 – My parents came to help painting. Once they were busy, I continued with the wooden frame in the Library room, drilling holes, bolting wood and gluing sheets of plywood. I went to all the neighbours in the street asking if there would be an issue if I put a crane on Friday, blocking the road behind their houses.

Friends from London came to my ship in the afternoon. We had a drink and sat outside. Spring is coming!
