They are 'growing' big lakes and water meadows here and a fair amount of bird life has already moved in. I'm sure it will be lovely in a few years, but it doesn't offer a lot for the walker at the moment being, primarily, a vast desolate area of mud.
Daisy has developed a complex about being mistaken for a kitten. She has decided that she is malnourished and has demanded a bigger food bowl (I'm going to need a litter tray the size of a bath tub!).
Our licence expired at the end of December 09 and we applied early December for a gold licence as we are 'doing' the fens this summer, we gave G's daughter's address for delivery as we knew we would see her over xmas/new year. The cheque was cashed on 9th December. Phoned BW in Jan & was told it had been processed on 10th Jan and would be with us shortly. Today I tracked it down in Norfolk. So now it has to go Norfolk to Northampton & then Northampton to a suitable post office - methinks we could be looking dodgy for a week or two yet.
This whole 'address' business is becoming a pain as we can no longer use the one we have been for the last two years. Tomorrow I shall have a word with the company being advertised by River Canal Rescue & see what they can offer.
