A late start.
We had a late start to our cruising day because having placed an online order for a new laptop on Tuesday Keith was waiting for it to arrive. According to the delivery company it was due to arrive today, which it did at about 11:30 this morning, so Keith caught the bus Foxton bus into Market Harborough to pick it up, leaving me home alone, to tidy the boat and cook tonights dinner which is Meatballs and play on the computer for five minutes. Upon returning we decided that we would move, we had time to deliver some coal to a customer and get up through the locks before they were shut for the day. Coming up behind us was NB Lady Gwendoline, who are off to Crick as their boat is for sale. The wind was blowing an absolute gale moving up the flight, which kept blowing the lock gates open. Having moored up I walked back down the flight to help NB Lady Gwendoline up the last few locks, but found they had family assisting them. But it give me a chance to have a natter as we walked back up the flight.
Keith is now playing with his new computer now :-)) and I have my fingers crossed that this one does not play up like the last one. If that happens I am going to throw the flippen thing in the canal.
Right time for me to go and stir the balls, so that they do not stick. Have a lovely morning, afternoon or evening.
Chat soon. xx
