The Captain Returns

Yesterday Eric returned to NB Bendigedig thanks to his sister Paula driving him home as he wasn't well enough to come back by train. Clare has been looking after him too. He's been feeling decidedly sick for a few days and the bug finally made its presence felt while he was away from home.We're all the same we want to be home when we feel poorly..

Today he's on toast and clear soup and feeling better as the wild wind is pummelling the boat. It's always windier on Tixall Wide and the satellite dish has just come unstuck from it's magmount! Eric's just rescued it.

Ben and I have been down to Great Haywood to get some food......we'd planned to move to Rugeley over the weekend but we'll see what the weather brings. Windy narrowboating is not much fun. You can see a few whiffs of smoke from the chimneys on the boats moored here.....all warm and cosy and  staying put!
