Having gotten up and walked Paddy, I had an early job to do and that was to dig out some of the mint plant which was spreading like wild fire in the sensory garden. When it was planted it should have been contained, but it wasn't and now it is rampant. So I got stuck in to digging most of it out and then replanting the plants which had been hidden by the mint. With the job done and a coffee consumed, Keith and I walked into the town to get a couple of things which included a Raspberry bush, wool for my crocheting, a small hand fork for Keith and a new pair of Summer shoes for me, because I have nothing for the Summer as we would normally be on the move, so I would be wearing my steel toe capped shoes all summer. With nothing else needed we began the walk back, when I remembered we were out of Lemonade, so we nipped into Sainsbury's for a bottle of their cheap Lemonade at 17 pence a bottle. Since Keith has been home from the hospital he has developed a taste for the drink, which he never used to have. He has also gained a taste for Pizza and Ice Cream.
Back at the boat, I plunged the Raspberry bush in to water, because it said to do so for an hour Whilst that was soaking, I got on and cooked some lunch. Keith sat outside and enjoyed the sunshine until lunch was cooked. After I walked round to the Trust Pets store to get some suet for my Robin and on the way back saw a boat heading up towards the winding point in the arm and it turned out to be our very good friends Steve and Christine on NB Amy Jo. It was a wonderful surprise to see them and their new boat. I have followed their blog and the building of AmyJo and know just how excited they are about having her, so to see them and her in the flesh was fantastic.
