We had a really lovely Christmas at Laura and Marc’s with our new granddaughter. Also James announced his engagement to his girlfriend Ali, so we enjoyed a double celebration.
But now we’re back on board.
It was so windy on Thursday night we were surprised to find the boat still moored exactly as we’d left her, on just mooring spikes.
I did a big Tesco shop in the morning while Storm lit the stove and got the boat warmed up. The wind continued to buffet us day so we stayed put and instead in the afternoon we went into Chester to look around the shops. Fatal – it’s impossible to do this without buying something!
