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.

Update on Ian

Common Ragwort. Flying hoverfly is an Episyrphus balteatus

I made a cake yesterday, vanilla sponge filled with coffee buttercream. I then went shopping for a card and Ian's favorite tipple, a bottle of Captain Morgan Spice. All this I did while Ian was out and why? Because yesterday Ian had his 60th birthday.  So now he can have his free eye test but, mores the pity, will still have to wait for the bus pass!
Surprisingly we had a phone call last night from Ian's Consultant apologising for not seeing us on our last appointment. He said it was due to unforeseen circumstances. Fair enough but there was still no excuse in not getting his registrar up to speed with the case. He then told Ian that he had full intentions of seeing him on the next appointment, until, that is, his secretary informed him of a prior engagement on the same afternoon. However, because of the fact  that the last blood test still showed the liver function to be above what was the norm, he said he would make every effort to be available for the allotted time. So with any luck we should be able to see the man himself. Watch this space!!
