A new chapter of our adventure is just about to begin.
I have been slightly apprehensive about moving as a whole lot of new changes have happened these past 3 months:
I quit my job
Moved out the house onto the boat
Started living in a new area, Willington.
Sold the house back in Staffordshire
Made a new life at Mercia Marina on the boat.
I do not regret any of the above as life is so much better. No stresses and I have been making new friends and started to get out a bit more which has done me the world of good.
These past months have been the happiest ever. I have made good friends at the marina and so just as I am starting to get settled and enjoying life we are now moving!!!
I am trying to look at it positively as it will bring new opportunities, new adventures and at least we are travelling on the boat for a few days and hopefully a lot more once Roy has settled down to a proper work routine.
We were bought some lovely farewell cards and presents which really touched me. Even shed a few tears. We have been bought a box of Milk Tray, a beautiful hanging heart photo frame, a plaque engraved with a personal message and a bottle of wine. Thanks everyone (Cherrie & Frank, Ann & Terry, Julie & Rob, Barbara & Terry) for your kindness and generosity.
Guess who was up at 5.30 this morning baking a cake!
Thanks Cherrie for the wonderful cake. We have already devoured a third of it!
We will back soon to collect the car and so I will say hi to everyone when we go collect it and visits to our next moorings have already been planned. Can’t wait!
We have travelled a few hours today and are currently moored by Barton Turns.
We had a wonderful trip today, the back cabin stove was on and the weather stayed dry. Perfect cruising weather.
The fires on, Wish is fast asleep and we are going to watch a film……………oh and a cup of tea and the next third of the cake!!
