Giving Sirius a spring clean

For the last couple of weekends I have been giving Sirius a decent spring clean with help from a couple of friends of mine. Two weekends ago we jet washed the outside (both sides) and gave her a good scrubbing down, she looks a lot better now, but the down side is this exposes all the areas that need a re-paint, and on a 70' narrowboat, that's quite a few places!

Then last weekend it was time to give the insides a good clean, dusting, removing a gazillion spiders and their webs, hoovering and generally giving everything a well deserved clean. There is still a bit to do, but she's certainly looking a lot better than before.

The next task is to fix a cupboard door and to replace some floor boards as my friend Anita unfortunately found an area that was quite rotten and she put her foot straight though! ( Even though I have warned her that I was going to replace that patch of floor soon, and please don't tread on it :) ) Luckily she was not hurt at all and we just had a good laugh about it :)
