After a busy time in a very rainy Wales we are back here in Whixall Marina. At least here the pontoons float so we are ok, watching the boats up north on the Facebook Narrowboat User Group posts as they struggle with the floods has been awful.
We have a lovely time in south Wales with our family and for the first time we had Christmas dinner without shopping or dishes. The food was good but the place failed on atmosphere, no festive music and a bit of a rush. I think I prefer my Christmas dinner even with having the shopping and washing up to do.
Ben surprised us by managing up and down the stairs so he must be feeling better. We even had a longer walk down Newport Wetlands with his mate Poppie and Ben the man. Hestayed fairly clean but Poppy found something disgusting to roll in!
Last night we were buffetted by the current storm but today it's not quite so wild and windy but it's raining. Eric took Ben for a walk and it absolutely poured down so they were both dripping wet. All dried off now. Enjoy your day.
