So now everyone knows the plans and all that is needed is for all the paperwork that the UK Border Agency need to process Jaq`s visa and we can both live happily ever after. The amount of paperwork is astounding plus the things they want to know even about me, finances,accommodation,proof of length of relationship, it goes on and on. We did get some good tips off the Internet from others having gone through the hoop and one was to present the paperwork in an indexed file to make it easy to process and hopefully add speed to the conclusion. So i`m having to obtain statements from Internet banks and spend ages photo copying (they want originals and copies) the dozens of other requested documents. All be worth it.
So the slow journey south continues and i`m taking the time to carry on with some alterations and boat maintenance.

This stretch of canal down to Blisworth opened late 1796 and is slightly longer(just under a mile) than originally planned owing to following the contour and avoiding more heavy earthworks as had been needed at Weedon & Bugbrooke. The biggest challenge was Blisworth tunnel that proved a costly long drawn out construction.

Bloggers are still around and Ian and Karen on NB Tacet stopped the night at Weedon on their way to the Nene. It was a first time meet for us all so it was nice to be able to invite them aboard for a cuppa. Also George and Carol on NB Rock`n`Roll passed by today, probably see more of them as we head in the same direction.
Hi Les, Hadn't read Jaq's posting on your blog when we passed you yesterday afternoon. Many Many congratulations to you both on 'setting the date'and we sincerely hope that all the hoops that you're both asked to jump through will be without further problems. Hope to see you soon - and perhaps meet you both sometime in soon. Carol and George
many thanks and before this is all done we should be very fit having jumped through all the hoops.
Yes we will all meet.
