Last night the wind howled and moved the boat about on the water as the rain banged on the roof.......I was awake but Eric was fast asleep. He's a bit deaf in one ear so that helps. I must have got some sleep when the weather calmed down.
The nasty bug going round certainly hit us for six. and ten days on I am feeling much better although Eric has a way to go the coughing has eased. The nurse at the doctor's said it's nothing to do with flu as no body aches or sore throats just a painful head and totally bunged up feeling in the sinuses and a dreadful cough. We've certainly kept Kleenex in business.
We've been very pleased to have grocery deliveries after the Tesco driver rang to find out where we are. Ben the dog's had short walks around the marina or along the canal.....not that he minds he likes to lie by the fire and sleep!
Here at Whixall life is good....... coal and logs delivered to the boat by Phil or Darren to keep us warm and cosy. Friendly neighbours who chat to you and help you out if you need it. We watch the changing seasons and the wild life in the marina. The only downside is the car never stays clean long with all the mud and puddles ......one of the joys of living in the country.
