It was one of my Grandchildren's second birthday yesterday, and bless her but the day for her started of with a visit to A+E at 4.30am, she had been out all day yesterday with her cousins to Legoland, Windsor, and probably had too much sun. Still the adults enjoyed the water pistol fight whilst she was having an afternoon snooze, DID I SAY ADULTS?
Well I had better update what has been happening on 'MR', we have spent the last two weeks meandering up and down the south Oxford, firstly to be around for the party yesterday, secondly, to go to the Cropredy Festival, which is where we are at now, although the festival doesn't start 'til Thursday moorings here are at a premium and come Thursday it'll be single file through here, and lastly our friend, Wendy who lives on her boat at Enslow is having a party for her staff at the end of the month and has asked us to babysit a barrel of Real Ale for her whilst it settles......Maybe.
The South Oxford at this time of year is really a most beautiful Canal, the colours and sights are amazing, last night we sat and watched the sun go down and saw the most wonderfully Pink sky I have ever seen, this morning watching the Sun rise into a crystal clear sky framed the night very well.......yuck
Jill made a decision last night, We are going to the Macclesfield in September, I love it when she's forceful. We made some friends on our and their inaugural cruise in May. Linda and David were taking their boat home to the Macclesfield when they bumped into us, not quite literally but almost and that was how we met. They are an amazing Couple, David had been diagnosed with Parkinsons, he is in his late fifties and decided the decease was not going to beat him, so he went out and bought a 62ft narra, amazing!.
I just maybe able to persuade Jill to put some thoughts together and give you her side of our recent past, I'm sure that if she does it will be a little more readable than my untidy mutterings.
