|Clare and Ben's Wedding|
Looking for photograph of the two of us I thought I'd reuse this one of a very happy day last September. This week we celebrate our birthdays, another year gone by with lots of good memories and some sadder moments.
Nothing much happening here at Whixall Marina, note the spelling ITV's 'Barging Around Britain' spelt it Wixall. I did watch the Llangollen one but found it rather disappointing but then again they only had twenty minutes. They could have shown the locks at Grindley Brook or even mentioned the Mosses as they passed them by several times.
We've had frost in the early morning followed by hail stones, sleet and snow all in one day. Ben wasn't keen in walking in the hail stones so we sheltered under a canal bridge until it stopped. Ben walked he had to stay home alone......I hope he didn't bark or howl for long.
We decided to go shopping in Shrewsbury for a change, it's such a busy town with lots of shops. All we really wanted was another Three MiFi as Eric's finished his Three phone contract which tethering on, which was useless in Whixall for the internet or phone calls. The MiFi has a much stronger signal and at £20.10 for 15G It's a good buy with enough data to watch iplayer, films and of course You Tube.
I bought some new jeans, a boater's essential and we had lunch out in M & S, toasties and a side salad with coffees.....very nice too. Eric's exciting buy was some new vests as Tesco's failed in their length, the new ones actually were much longer.........as he modelled it to show me!
