About Me

My photo
The name describes my demeanour and voice! I love narrowboating and that is why this blog is mainly about the boat and our interaction with it. I have been keeping a log for Sonflower ever since we bought her and moved onto her as our main residence. Some incidents in our boating life have been hilarious, some scary and some down right dangerous. I cannot tell what will come in the future but you can now share them! The crew are an 'ordinary' couple. The Best Mate and I.

WInter Cruising

what wonderful weather for winter cruising.

But I have been viewing it from flat on my back, with my hooves in the air, through the sticks of the roof between trots out to pasture to dispose of fluid through every orifice of the body except the ears!

Eeyore has had a gloomy time with gastric flu.

Piglet has suffered from a less severe case but The Best Mate has had to be very busy keeping up with the laundry and the moaning.

I started on Sunday. We planned to do things this week:

50 HOUR 'SHAKEDOWN" CRUISE maybe as far as Thrupp and back--POSTPONED

48 HOURS sleep on board to check out electrics and new water heating: POSTPONED

JUST BEING SOMEWHERE SURROUNDED BY ICE out of the FIREWORK CRACKIN CELBRATION CULTURE: HOPEFULLY NEXT YEAR

I have managed to view the lovely full moon through the holes in the roof and thought about Andrew of Granny Buttons who must have been out there taking the most beautiful frost sparkling moonlit photographs.

I have missed it.



A HAPPPY NIEWEE YEEEAR TO ALL MY READERS

SNAP & much sympathy with being ill over New Year, TT turned into an isolation ward for a while. People still came round at their own risk (which was v nice of them)even when I rung a bell & shouted (well whispered) "Unclean, Unclean" lol

I'm feeling a lot better now, not normal (nothing new) & still a bit snotty but at least the illness thing has gone. Are you both feeling better now? Hope so,
