It was lovely to receive our birthday cards sent to Llangollen Post Office. They happily provided the 'poste restante' service unlike the man in Sue's blog, in fact they even recognised me the second time I collected our post. Eric enjoyed a quiet 60th birthday but that's what he wanted. He's making a good recovery from his operation but his walking speed is slower than usual-which is great because I don't have to tell him to slow down so I can keep up!
We've not done anything particulary interesting this week other than the usual food shopping, boat cleaning, water filling and cassette emptying jobs. Today's job is the washing but the washer drier does all the work! We did have a bus ride into Wrexham and Eric found a lovely brass dragon which will make a lovely tiller pin when he gets a metal rod to do it himself or finds a tiller pin maker on our travels. It's sitting on the shelf looking good at the moment just waiting for the time when he get's outside to see the world!
Ben the dog has been enjoying eating his pet tennis balls as they are rubbish and split in two when he squishes them as we play ball. He's also had lots of deep paddles when he drops his ball down the sloping banks deliberately and then goes in the canal to get it. He's not daft he won't go in if it's deep and I've yet to see him swim other than when he's fallen in deeper water. We are off for our morning walk. Make the most of your extra day this year!
