Well the time had come to move on after a lovely w`end. Well yes i know it`s Wednesday but a boater`s w`end can be that long, sorry you working folks. Chas and Anne had moved off i think on Tuesday and when i awoke Del & Al  had arrived on Dewent6 and had stopped by just to say hello, thanks guys.

So time for goodbyes as Sue & Vic move off followed by Del & Al with me off in the opposite direction towards Rugby for some plumbing parts for my re-location of the washing machine. Jaq you will have space for your clothes i promise.

The new marina at Barby looks much the same as the last time i passed. Just a big hole, no pontoons and more

worrying for the intending moorers, no sign of any work force. The site says opening Spring 2011 somehow i think this might be a bit optimistic.

I had just approached the last of the 3 locks at Hillmorton when a boat approached. There are 2 single locks side by side here and as i was dropping in one the other boat was heading for the adjacent lock.

 As the boat got closer i realised it was Mo & Ness on Balmaha so congratulations on my engagement to Jaq  were their first words and after a long chat with us both using a lock each, good job the season isn`t in full swing, we both carried on our journey`s.
So 4 fellow bloggers have crossed my path in as many days, hold on make that 5 as Paul & Lyn on Piston Broke stopped by briefly to help Sue & Vic with a minor wiring problem but were gone before i realised.

So looking forward to the time that you and Jaq can be together with all of your friends. It will be so much fun.

Ohhh how I wish I were there. May cannot come soon enough. shall I bring the duvet perhaps the secateurs?
I Love you!

Sue said...


No, no please!

Hi ngillard
It won`t be long and there are a lot of folk wishing to meet Jaq.

Les Biggs said...

Jaq, i`m still laughing about that.

Hi Sue
It`s all about an evening of word pronunciatian American style against Brit style.
I can`t even think how to describe how they pronounce these 2 words along with hundreds of others.

Jaqueline Biggs said...

We Yanks find a British accent quite er..appealing. Someone with a British accent can recite the contents of their trash bin and make it all sound sexy. It's the way he pronounces duvet and secateurs... ;)

Ok Les
I will try again, don't know what the problem is, but my google keeps getting cranky.

Nice plumbing and I am glad you are making Jaq more wardrobe space, and I hope she has a lovely time filling it. LOL
