Day 9. Still catching up.

Hello family, friends and followers.

It is getting busy here at Alvecote, with boaters turning up for the coming Bank Holiday Weekend rally. I have spent a lot of the past couple of days catching-up with friends I have not seen for ages and I mean ages. I have also been given wool for my Collie blankets and given wool that I cannot use to other boaters, who will make good use of it. It is all about sharing in the boating community.
I am going to be a little boring, because there is very little news. It will all kick off on Friday and over the weekend, so I will not bore you with my cleaning and boat sorting out. After all there is only so much brass cleaning anyone can cope with and so I will skip that for now and move on to today.
This morning I finished blanket number 15 for the Collie's at the Border Collie Trust. I have already started number 16. After lunch, we headed over to The Samuel Barlow, to help with the boat moving. I say we, in fact Keith did the helping and I did the chatting and drinking of beer, which was great fun. It was so pleasant to sit in the bar with like minded people and enjoy a chat over a pint. It was also wonderful to catch up with a couple of friends I have not seen for two years. The joy of a boaters life, is you do not see someone for a long time, but when you get together it is as though you have never been a part. With the boat moving done, we both enjoyed another pint and loads more chatting and laughter. I cannot tell you how much I am looking forward to this weekend and the weather is supposed to be good, but shhh do not tell the weather that.

Pop back soon xx
