We woke to rain, overcast skies, blustery gusts of wind and cold air! We took our time getting up and setting off but we did make Norbury before lunch and managed it in between showers.
For the last few days our grill hasn’t been working and Storm has been unable to fix it so we popped into the chandlers to ask if they had a gas engineer on site. Within an hour a man had called and fixed the problem.
While in the chandlers we picked up a copy of the April editions of Towpath Talk and the Tillergraph and reading them kept us occupied for most of the afternoon.
We both had a hot shower in the luxurious service block before tucking in to a home-made vegetable curry, that used up the last of our vegetables as we’re trying to eat everything in the fridge as James and Ali are bringing their own supplies. We haven’t planned this very well as The Junction pub here dishes up fantastic meals! We will pop in later for a drink though.
There is a better internet reception here too as we managed a Skype call with Laura today without the image being pixelated or conversation fractured.
