|All festive and ready to welcome the guests.|
So here we are again. A New Year has dawned and the festivities are over for another year. We had a great time at Wally and Sue's last night, dancing away to local bands and enjoying the mountain of food and drink. I called it a day at 1.30am but the die hards (Ian being one of them) lasted a good hour longer. All to soon our woofit alarm clock woke us up at 8am by wanting to go out, so with no more thoughts of staying in bed, we dressed and went across to the house to help clear up. Sue, who had had even less sleep then us, was already elbows deep in the washing up and, with both of us given tasks, soon got busy and finished in no time. The weather had turned nasty by the time we finished and although we could have stayed another day, Mick and Carol Golds nb Electra wanted to try to get within spiting distance of Langley and it was daft for us not to go with them and pair up in the locks. By 11.30am we had donned our thermals and wet weather gear, let go ropes for'ard and aft and set off on our journey back.
