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.

Watch out there's a Thief about!

Yes, another theft from SONFLOWER while on her mooring!

This time four 25kg bags of Purheat coal. Value to me: heat while cruising.

Value to anyone else: £40.00. It seems hardly worth the trouble of taking them off the roof, putting them on a barrow and transporting them away, unseen, to a place unknown. Perhaps they need to warm themselves up after a cold night's thieving.

I wouldn't deny anybody the warmth if they really needed it. But it is hardly ever the destitute who would take without asking. The poor usually have higher standards and wouldn't stoop so low.
