It`s been a slow journey down with plenty of longer than usual stops which makes finding something to blog difficult but no doubt when Jaq comes aboard her new home before we fly back to the States to marry there might be a lot more blogs.
This boat on the Wendover Arm has ended up on the bottom. Once somebody`s home it`s now i would guess a removal problem for BW.
Into Berkhamsted for a few days gives me a chance to stock up the galley and find a laundrette to give the Duvet a wash as for sure it won`t fit my machine on board.
The old Town hall in Berko is now a coffee bar/restaurant.
Friday will probably be my moving on day as i know of a quiet little spot just before Winkwell that will be good for the w`end.
Next week i will start the spring clean of the boat before Jaq arrives which includes washing the ceiling and walls, drastic? No the reason is i`ve decided that Jaq`s arrival will signify the start of my being a non smoker as the confines of a narrow boat will not be a healthy environment for the two of us. I have done a test wipe over on the ceiling and although the stove contributes to the muck up above my smoking must be the main cause. So it`s a case of will power or patches but i think will power and the the love of my life being on board that will win.
I must say i enjoyed smoking, but now have to consider Jaq`s health, and when flying out to the states have gone without a smoke for 20+ hours so i think it will be easy. Of the 2 drugs (love & nicotine) my money is on love.
