We were right, yeah

What a relief, we didn't get the severe force 11 winds as predicted by the met office.  A mere 30 knots but tonight looks a tad more windy for us.
Spent the afternoon painting in Tiphanie's room after stripping wallpaper yesterday.  The room was terribly damp when we first moved into the house and the bottom 1 to 2 feet went mouldy behind the paper within a month of me wallpapering.  It was very unsightly with black marks showing through the paper.  At least with paint you can clean it.  Not doing anything too drastic as the room needs to be insulated and double glazed to solve the problem.
Also spent a couple of hours doing bookwork as I haven't done any for a couple of weeks.

Shaun came on the plane today to help Christopher work the boat.  We have 43, 200 kilo plus bales of wool to go this time.  They all have to be rolled part way down the jetty to go on the sea truck.  Also have radiators, an oil burner, plasterboard and other bits coming for Shaun and Tanya's house.
