TWO WEEKS ON.....hows it going?

Hi everyone, 2 weeks tomorrow and sooooo happy!! Still on the weaver and have moved about 2 miles Ha. Should have moved from salterford lock to winsford flashes yesterday but only managed anderton, looked too inviting for the dogs, god run area and a game of cricket with kal as he's been desperate for that..had fun.
Met Colin ad Dot on Ascot, name to be changed,at Saltersford with Bonnie the Yorkshire terrier, had met them about 5 months ago at the boat club, they were working on their boat getting it ready to move on and can you believe it they moved on the same day as us..good luck to you both.
We have been back to the house too many times!!!! but alas there's stuff to sort out and throw out and we can't wait for it all to be done but eventually that will happen.
At Anderton we met a couple who have been aboard for 2 years and taking it very slowly, thats the way, up to ripon via the rochdale and back down...7 months, how cool is that.
Hoping for our first visitors tomorrow, my eldest son and his partner its his birthday tomorrow so were going for a meal...catch up again soon.. x

AT LAST! IT'S OFFICIAL, WERE LIVABOARDS..

Well, made the move on Thursday, hugged and waved bye to my youngest son, had a tear as if i would never see him again and he said," You've done everything for me for the last 19 years now it's time for you to go and enjoy life"...that made me cry more...
I have to say that yesterday I didn't feel like we had moved aboard but was trying to tell myself, this is it. Today we had to nip home to pick up more personal stuff and that did feel strange as I brought things to the boat that I don't when were just going away cos it would be too much back and fro'ing with things.
I don't know how long it will take to feel like we have moved on, maybe once the house sale has gone through.
Our friends Joe, Sandra and their dog Fudge visited us today on their boat Jack of Hearts...pity the weather wasn't better.
