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.

With gritted teeth and determination.

Determined today to try and walk round the lake.  Doing no exercise is not at all beneficial to my health. The weight is starting to pile on and I need to get going again. My trouble is this blessed pain in the hip and lower leg stopping me from walking very far. Pain killers help a lot so after taking the recommended dose I set off with gritted teeth, determination and the inevitable camera. No end of fighting and mating going on at the lake so I have included a few pictures. The majority of the photos will be posted on my Jameison Wildlife blog over the next few weeks so if you fancy a look click here.

Baby Bunnies. No bigger then my hand. ahhhhhhhh

Cute or what!

And of course those that will eat them, the Buzzard

Thankfully all round the lake seats have been placed so some of the time I just sat and watched the birds and bees. Luckily for me one of the seats happened to be right where the baby bunnies came out to play and feed so I spent a good half hour just watching them. By the time I got back to FS Ian had removed the back hatch slide so he could treat and varnish the wood. I felt a bit guilty on leaving him to do this himself but..... then on the other hand........ He also happened to mention that I missed Nb Just the Job. (Sorry to have missed you.) I wasn't able to put a link to their blog 'cause I couldn't find it. So Paul and Glennis if you do read this, any chance on sending me your blog address? I can then add you to my list.

Ian's off to Morrisons in a bit for doughnuts. We just love Morrisons doughnuts, they are so much tastier then those in the other stores we have tried. Christine, Josh and Thomas are due to visit shortly and we must give them something to eat with the hot drinks. (no doubt Josh will go hyper with the sugar rush Smiley )  I expect I will have some photos of the grandkids to share with you on the morrow but for now and until they arrive, I'm going fishing.
