That's Right - It's in the mail

Still moored at Stowehill bridge no 26 at Weedon

At last our new BW licence arrived in London today and hopefully we will have it here tomorrow. A total of 48 days, and they are talking 15, someone got it very wrong. But at least by the weekend we shall be legal by displaying a current licence.

Last night was a wild noisy night, what with the high winds, the railways must have run every noisy clapped out loco they own with no silencers, at least that's what it sounded like.

Our Tesco order duly arrived but it wasn't a total success as a can of soft drink was punctured and leaked over several other items which were rendered useless The delivery man took the damaged goods away saying that he would credit them back against our account.

Today has been housework day or is it called boatwork, vacuuming, dusting and general cleaning. Surprising how dusty everything gets with the gale force winds we have had. We always have windows open for ventilation even in mid winter.

We are considering staying our allocated 14 days here visiting relatives in Peterborough for a family birthday while we are close, as long as we move on the following week we will be through the Buckby flight and on to Rugby in plenty of time for our appointment with the Boat Safety Examiner.
