A bit of a catch up.

Normally, by this date we would be off!  Or at least getting ready to.

The start will be delayed somewhat this year.  In late February, John had a complete knee replacement.  This was after several years of limping along the towpath.  2013 was brilliant, apart from this, which did formulate a plan.  Let's get the bloody thing sorted!

Well, the deed is now done, but recovery will take a little time.  Every day, in every way, it does get a little better.  The recovery is slow, but getting there.

So we will remain moored at Crick until mid summer and then hopefully, we will be off!  The negatives are that we had to cancel blacking untill later this year, the posotives are that we will be at Crick for the show!  

The boat has been neglected somewhat, but we hope to remedy this in the near future. The wash and polish we gave her in the autumn appears to have paid dividends in that this will be all that is needed to bring her up to scratch.  Just cosmetic really.

We are both really looking forward to getting out, bring it on!
