Liz and Roland arrive 12 July 2011

The whole day still carrying out our routines, we had a good system despite the cramped conditions, it was all catching up with us, Nige and I felt well down, worn out. At 7.59pm Liz and Roland arrive, it was a very low start to the day with a better finish. It must have been hard for them to arrive, jet lagged and disorientated. It was clear they needed a rest before we started to hand over. We were lifted by knowing they were here but had to carry on with the work.
