We also have had more good news this month. Ian's consultant is very pleased with his progress and has signed him off for another 6 months. Long may it continue!!!
December has turned out to be a busy month. We've had a winter BBQ (who in there right mind would have a BBQ in winter? Well the ECP&DA bods would, thats who!) Although the evening turned out a bit drizzly, it was ever so mild for the time of year and most of us women stayed inside the cottage leaving the men to face the elements and do the cooking.
|Cooking done and back in the warm|
|At least some shelter was had.|
|Inside the Canal House, two narrow boats nestled side by side. Mooring costs may be high but what a great mooring....right inside a pub!!!|

Tomorrow yet another meal with daughter Christine and family, Thursday more of the same with a Christmas meal at Eastwood joined by our boaty friends, Dave and Heather and Dennis and Margaret and then it's the run up to Christmas taking Merlin back to Bunbury for Anglo Welsh. Phew.... roll on January for a rest.
Oh and congratulations to Tim Peake being the first British astronaut to be sent on a mission to the ISS
