We had a cuppa at Paula's house before we headed to Lisa's and Gwen's home where we stayed for a couple of nights. Peter spoiled us on Thursday by taking us out for a meal with Lisa and Gwen to the Three Blackbirds. Thanks Peter and thanks Lisa for letting us stay.
On Friday we made our way home to Whixall enjoying the air con in the car keeping us so cool. We got some fresh food stuff at the Coop in Wem and made our way back to the boat at Whixall Marina.
The cafe is supposed to be opening at the beginning of August so there's lots of work going on here at the moment with pavements and the road being resurfaced as well as an outside area for the cafe. There's also a large new carpark. Soon it will be finished and peace will return to Whixall Marina.
It's been incredibly hot on the boat so we purchased a fan which has helped. It was the last one in Tesco's Shrewsbury so we didn'the have a choice.
Today I made a porthole bung for our bedroom as when the sun comes up it wakes me up. We found some foam in Dunelm and cut a 38 cms circle. I made a cover to match the curtains. Hopefully I'll sleep longer tomorrow. The swallows twitter away in the early mornings so perhaps I won't. Tonight they're swooping down over the large area of water in front of the marina building taking a drink of water.
