Today was the first day of our 7th year of living afloat on MR and we wouldn't change it for the world - neither of us regret the decision and neither of us could bear to return to a static life; let's just hope our health permits
Yesterday I pre-ordered some smoked bacon from the butcher in South Kilworth and set off with Muttley to collect it
The ditches are looking a little lively and I knew a lot of the going would be filthy so I left Baxter in his armchair with G
our destination; followed by a pint and a packet of porky scratchings in the village pub before heading home again
We pulled pins late lunch heading for Crick, but it was too late to get there and we called it a day by Yelvertoft water point at 5.00pm - nice to see the noticeboard there being kept up to date; it was advertising the Crick Boatshow 2008!
This morning I celebrated the anniversary with kidneys tomato and bacon for breakfast (courtesy of yesterday's 4 mile round trip to the butcher) and the boys thought that they might get a look in if they looked cute enough (wrong!).
and we watered and completed the trip to Crick for much needed milk and veg at the Co-op and a celebratory £5 lunch at The Red Lion - we know how to have a good time. Then moved on to a nice place of tranquility just through the tunnel
to sit out tomorrow's forecasted appalling weather
Pheasants to pluck, wood to chop and a dog to strip out
Not a soul around
