A Chance visit.

Jill has been at her Mums for over a week and I have been on my self enforced Alcohol diet for the month of January, added to all of that I have had a cold for the last 10 days.
Well something had to break.......(sorry Dougie no pun intended), It was my fast.
Look who took me out to dinner.

James and Dougie of NB Chance were out for a New Year cruise, taking advantage of the mild weather and had decided to visit Jill and I at Stoke Bruerne, as well as, others encountered on the way.
It had been two years since we have seen them and Jill has been spitting whatever since she found out that she was going to miss them.
Thank you both for a great afternoon and evening.

I have now moved albeit just through the tunnel to Blisworth, as my time in Stoke Bruerne was up, it is a lovely place to stay for a few days, Thank you to the Landlord Staff and boating friends in the Boat Inn for a very Pleasant New Years Eve et al.


  1. You asked about finding your postcode when we met yesterday.

    Try Canalplan ( and select the "Places" option from the left hand menu then "Find me". Your location information will appear on the left, including postcode. Remember that can only be approximate but still very useful.

    Let me know if it works for you.

  2. I knew I wouldn't live the glass episode down! haha ! Thanks again for a great day. Doug

  3. Sorry Doug, I couldn't resist that one. Thank you.

    Paul it was good to see you although it was only a fleeting Visit, I have used Canalplan before but on occasion there wouldmbe no internet coverage and therefore no chance of finding a postcode in time to give to the emergency services

  4. What are you doing on my blog - so now I've missed Paul as well as Doug and James - and why do you need the emergency services. Honestly, I can't leave you on your own for 5 mins, well a week!!!!!!!!! xxxxxxx
