What day is it?

Why do I live full time on our boat, live off a couple of rentals and a few curtain making jobs but never seem to have a minute!
I feel sorry for anyone working full time, been there, done that, 24/7 virtually. Still can't understand where the time goes.
Also my apologies again for my lack of posts but our friend has had more bad news about her cancer and there is nothing more that can be done so she will e going home for her final days/weeks.
This means leaving her life on the boat, sad time....
On Monday at the age of 62 she will be marrying her devoted partner to whom she has been engaged for 12 years, in the hospital, what an emotional time that will be for us all.

Snow! That was a shock this morning, wouldn't be too bad if that cold wind wasn't around, having trouble with Ariel signal in Burscough, our new lorry Ariel isn't quite up to the job and we let our good Ariel go with the narrowboat.
A trip to the caravan sales somewhere around here is in need so off we go...



BURSCOUGH BRIDGE....

Hi everyone, had a little cruise up to Burscough for water. Pictures show our front and rear view as we're moored and a picture of Jack on the hire boat giving instruction.
It has taken quite a few hours to get here as swing bridge 31 by the Farmers Arms had a problem with its wedges. Had to wait for the cavalry and then an electrician had to be called. Why do these things happen when your in a rush.
Anyway, all done, mooring here tonight to go and visit our friends down near crewe who is doing fantastically well considering she was given 3hrs to live on THURSDAY!
Had a few more lovely compliments and a few ' viewings'. Not to happy about those with the state were in but what the heck, as long as they have another look when were finished....
And of course once the internal fittings are completed I will post pictures on here too...
