HOUSE SOLD

After 3 months on the market have had an offer VERY close to asking price and have accepted.
Also have arranged to look at a boat at LEE NARROWBOATS that is arriving from Morroco next month. Have not decided on a builder yet but thought it might be interesting to see this boat if only to see what is available in all price ranges. Have also been looking at 2yr old boats so i am not sure what way to go at the moment but i suppose you must taste all the sweets before you decide your favourite. Anyway i feel like i am cruising through Blisworth tunnel and the light at the end is getting brighter.
I hope all boaters reading my blog are safe and well see you all soon.

CRICK SHOW

Spent 2 days at crick and i might just have missed a few stands, certainly saw all the boats on show. It truly was a well organised show, plenty of parking, room to walk site to site, the most luxurious mobile toilets i have ever seen and when the show closed music in the marque till late.
A good aerobatic display each day by the wing walkers was a good excuse to plonk down on the grass and relax.
Have made a note of 3 builders that willbe my first ports of call for a quote when the house is sold, and do you know each one had views about the type of loo! Funny at home you don`t give it a second thought, do it and flush it, and don`t give it a second thought.
Stainless steele water tank is a must, don`t fancy treating the inside of integral one sounds a pain. So many things have come to light by just walking through the boats standing in the kitchen, sorry galley, and checking out the bathroom for elbow room, must have looked a sight standing by the wash basin pretending to wash, hope not to many people saw me.
Anyway it was well worth the trip much was learnt and some wonderful conversation was enjoyed with people i had not met before.
Will post a few pics, enjoy.
