Day 40: Shardlow to Nottingham.
After a pleasant stay in Sharlow catching up with friends, we left there this morning and headed off towards the River Trent.
After a much needed coffee, we decided that we would go and do our food shopping, because you can guarantee that tomorrow being Good Friday it will be heaving in the supermarkets, as everyone prepares for their weekend. Now the dilemma was, do we walk over a mile and a half to Aldi, or walk up the towpath to Sainsbury and pay more for the shopping. No brainer, we went to Sainsbury and to be honest we did not spend much more, mainly because I did not need a lot. With it going to be a hot weekend, I have plumped for salads and stir fries, so easy to do and it kept the cost down. Once back on the boat, neither of us had much energy left for anything else, so I have sat reading Whisper by Rosie Goodwin, which I have to say is excellent so far. I am halfway through and find it hard to put down. Anyway nothing much else to say, so I will say "cheerio".
