We came to a definite decision after this weekend that we definitely do not want to be living on Foxglove whilst still in a marina. Roy will not let me write the reasons why because sometimes I can be a bit too honest. So at least some kind of decision has been made. Some more thought needs to be given how we are going to do this because of continuing with work. I am sure we will find a private mooring along the canal somewhere. If anyone knows of any locally please let me know.
The best thing about this weekend though was Wish & Frank. Our friends Angus & Jan came over with Frank and it is always lovely to see them and this weekend the dogs got along even better. We took them for a walk in the snow and it was lovely to see them playing together. My new wellies are fantastic by the way and I would recommend them to anyone. They are called BOGS and they really do keep your feet warm without the extra need for thicker socks.
We have really settled in on the boat now and really look forward to the weekends. It took me ages to get home from work on Friday because of the snow on the roads but it did not stop us going over to the boat.
The new steps arrived last week but unfortunately I forgot to take pictures of them this weekend. We had them made by Rob Shone who did all the other joinery work on the boat for us when we first had Foxglove. They have made getting on and off the boat, both front and the back of the boat so much safer and even more storage now.
