Since Thursday afternoon we've been moored up watching the world go by. Tixall Wide was nearly empty of boats when we arrived but day by day it filled up and by Sunday there was nowhere to moor. Down in Great Haywood it was just the same with queues for water and at the lock. We've had a thoroughly lazy few days other than the usual dog walking. The weather has been wild with rain and wind interspersed with some dry spells so no chance of getting on with any exterior painting. I've read a couple of books and Eric enjoyed TV with the Grand Prix to watch. But tomorrow we are going on a little jaunt up towards Penkridge for a few days before we put the boat in Great Haywood Marina for a week as we're off to stay with my daughter Clare in Newport. We looked at the weather forecast and it's going to be wet, so we'll probably move after lunch when the rain may have stopped.
