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.

Birthday Treat

Of all the times to get a rotten cold it had to be now.  For my birthday treat Ian has arranged for us to see Queens 'We Will Rock You' at Nottingham Trent FM tonight. Dennis and Margaret have kindly offered to look after Jade until we return. The boats have first to be moved to Trent Lock in readiness for dry docking tomorrow and by what I can gather, when Ian went down to see if our new Crowthers prop (yes we are having a new and slightly larger prop fitted) had arrived on Monday, moorings were virtually non existent. A beer festival is taking place at The Steamboat over Easter and boats have already gathered for that. It will certainly make it interesting finding a place to tie up especially as 3 boats need to find moorings.
 Quick update.

Have just arrived and found spaces for all three of our boats. We are now moored opposite The Cats Whiskers but no sign of Roger and Pat.  So hair and makeup done, and just waiting for Ian to get his act together ( they say us women take an age ) and then its off to Nottingham for meal first and show later.

So pleased you liked the show, we have seen it twice in London, and thought it was amazing.
