On Saturday morning my Mum ,daughter and Granddaughter arrived , They brought Curly (Abbie) up from Devon to spend a week with us on the boat. Now we have to try and keep an 8 year old entertained for the next 7 days Suggestions on a postcard please. We have decided on Monday to head back down towards Milton Keynes where there will be more for her to do. No doubt Carolyn will continue to train her in the art of shopping and how to spend Granddads money.
After breaking two zips and countless fasteners on our cratch cover we decided to get some fenders made up to protect the cover and zips. And there is no one better when it comes to rope work than Mick Betts at Cosgrove near Milton Keynes. He had them all measured, made and fitted within a couple of days and with rope fenders for both sides costing less than one zip would cost to replace we think its well worth it. (Curly above watching Mick at work)
With Cosgrove park closing on November the 1st we were lucky to be able to watch their end of season Firework display. With a brilliant view from the Towpath we really enjoyed a bit of free entertainment.
