I rose before 09.00 this morning, I needed to give the interior of the boat the once over, its amazing how quickly the boat starts looking like a tip, anyone would think it is Elaine that keeps it clean and tidy.
I took the dogs for a good walk down to Stone so they would be nice and tired and sleep all afternoon whilst I nipped up to Manchester.
As you can see the towpath was a tad muddy, now this is the result of a few walkers and cyclists, what must it have been like in the days of the working boats when hundreds of horses a day trudged along the path?
At lunchtime I went to visit Elaine in the hospital, she looked good and was sitting in a chair next to the bed, she was hooked up to machines that go ping!
Whilst I was at this wonderful hospital they told me about a service that they offer and that is that you can send her an e-greeting it is delivered to her bed, what a great service, it all takes time for them to print out the greeting and deliver them, but nothing is too much trouble for them.
Whilst I was up there I volunteered to do some fundraising for them next month, mind you it is at Manchester Utd football ground so that will be fun.
