Another very cold night last night, and another night with a bed full of furry creatures!
Up at first light this morning, 9.30am (Sun rises late up north tha knows) Heating on and a cuppa, no milk so I walked the dogs round to Aston Marina to get some, had a chat with Di, Andy and Jean whilst there.
As there was some ice on the canal we waited for a couple of boats to go past and break it, dont want to damage our new blacking do we?
It was then a very short cruise up to Stone town centre, filling with water before passing through the Star Lock.
Perfect mooring spot
We went for a walk to the Post Office to see if the fire glass had arrived yet....no was the answer, so we popped into Costas for a coffee.
We walked back to the boat via Stone chandlery to see if they had any stove glass...no again.
Back to the good ship, I cleaned some water out of the engine room whilst Elaine gave the interior of the boat a clean.
Another day done, Elaine is making some jewellery whilst I am doing bugger all....all good as usual!
PS. I got my first snotty comment yesterday.....not bad since we started blogging in March 2011, of course the big girl stayed anonymous.
