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.

Phew....Managed to keep the secret....just

That was difficult! Keeping a secret for nie on 2 months. All to do with our sons 40th birthday party, and to think we, as well as a Facebook post,  nearly gave the game away. Iwona (daughter in law) wanted a surprise party inviting his old University friends as well as work mates. Facebook posts,  texting and Whats App was the means of communications and the one that was nearly our downfall (Facebook) thankfully Colin rarely looked at, so the comment made to except the invitation was removed in double quick time.  Anyway Iwona told Colin a surprise party had been organised for our Grandson's Oscar 7th birthday which meant everyone but Ian could get to the venue in plenty of time. Ian was the chauffeur taking Colin, Oscar and Oliver at a given time and, apart from a few that got held up on the M1 because of long tailbacks, the setting was complete for when he walked in. So here are a few of the photos with the majority on my Jameisons Afloat 2 blog.

First my picture of the super moon. Couldn't stay awake long enough to see the blood moon, mores the pity. Spectacular pictures on the news this morning made me sorry I missed it especially as the next one wont be until 2033,

Christine made Colin's and Oscar's cakes

Colin has a room just for his drums!!!!

Oscar loves Lego and what a fabulous cake Christine made. She's so talented. Must take after her mother Smiley

The gathering

And surprise

I think he is pleased, Iwona.

No I'm not really a boozer

Glad the day went so well, Irene and Ian and what fabulous cakes. Can I ask you to find out how the lego bricks were made out of icing? It is the round connectors on the top that interest me - we have grandsons who are also mad about lego! Jennie and Chris

Hi Jennie, Christine apparently bought Lego moulds and pressed coloured rolled fondant icing into them. Not sure if she found them on ebay but it's worth a look. Am pretty sure you cold buy them at the Lego shop though. Might be a bit pricey from there!! http://shop.lego.com/en-GB/ Xxxx
