About Us

My photo
In 1977 we hired our first narrowboat from Anglo Welsh at Market Harborough.From that moment our destiny was set. In 2006 we finally purchased our own brand new 57' narrowboat which we named 'Free Spirit'. Our aim is to travel the length and breadth of all the navigable rivers and canals of the UK. This will be our story as it unfolds.

Day 3. Floor still not finished!.

There never seems enough hours in a day when your trying to get things done. Progress has been made at Colin's, but the floor is still nowhere near finished, even though both Ian and Colin has worked like Trojans. Iwona has continued with the emulsion of walls and ceilings, and I'm still painting the stairs. Most of this morning I was filling in the nail holes on the wooden inserts on the stairs. The builders left all the nails sitting proud and Ian had to use his pin punch to bang them down .Then it all had to be sanded down once the filler had dried, and it wasn't until this afternoon that I finally managed to get the second coat of primer on. Tomorrow I start on the final coat of white Satin and Ian is ever hopeful that the floor will also be finished.



The landing still needs some work

Painting all these spindles took forever. Thankfully I didn't drop any paint over Ian!


Colin laying a tricky bit in the corner.


Looking good.




Iwona still painting walls.


Still a lot more to do, but as you can see, it's time for a tea break!



With the Bi-fold doors open and looking into, what will eventually be, a fabulous garden.!

Wow it looks like a job and half, but it is coming along nicely. I think at the end of each day you should sit down with a glass of wine and relax ;0)
