Thank you for all your kind comments.
I was in a foul mood as there were a couple of outings that had been arranged and then were cancelled. These were belated birthday treats from November so when Steve announced that we wouldn't be cruising with friends it was the icing on the cake.
Steve feels that the double locking until we get to the Thames will be too much for me. He is always very aware that I am slower than he is when doing the locks and is embarrassed by my shortcomings. Because we have a widebeam weren't get both boats in one lock so in effect we do each lock twice.?
JanF, Steve has bought new trousers for the wedding I shall wear a summer dress that I bought from Global Mandala, I've hardly worn it so it looks new.
Witch Hazel, life would be so much easier if I had a support network but constantly moving means that I don't. I'm hoping this will be our last year of being constantly on the move.
Flis, yes it is very disheartening.
Thank you Wendy, Ellen, Patsyann, Chris, Deb and Pam.
Kate, Steve's enthusiasm far outweighs his actual abilities.
Rambler, one of my daughters is giving us a lift to the station and caring for Beano on the day. The brother that is getting married doesn't drive so his GF and family drive him around, Steve is desperate to go to the wedding so we will have to try. It is Steve's brother getting married but it's my daughter that is helping us. We get no help from Steve's family at all.
