Tim lost in the woods

After a long day Tim decided to the girls, our jack russells, for a walk and ascended a near by hill and into the woods. I got stuck in to making some bread and cleaning and before i knew it it was dark ouuside and there was the realisation that they wernt back. I felt a bit guilty as i began to worry but thNkfully a phone call later relieved my worry. Having entered the woods the darkness fell and he couldnt find his way back. Quite funny now they are safe.

Wigan flight

How lovely it is at the top of the flight in new springs. We have been discovering the area for the last 2 weeks and are ready to move on tomorrow.
Been very impressed with the people of wigan, very friendly..

Football boots

Been a day of blacking out footy boots for prem players. All to do with myveldest sons business TOOTSBOOTS.
Also had a knock on the boat from Jim who's boat was launched just before ours and thankfully he hasnt finished his either!
Had a conversation about thr rust comingvthrough on our hull which according to Jim isnt rust its pitting that shouldnt be happening and according to a surveyer he had look at his boat its due to the earth coming from our negative on the battery to the hull. The surveyer says it isnt needed and is caising tbe hull yo have a negative charge and everytime a  boat goes by it makes some metal leave our boat and attach to yheirs.
Dont quite undersrand that but will be looking into it before all our hull gets robbed!

Well the kids are growing up, my footballer son and Jess his partner gets the keys to their new house on Friday. It's an exciting time for them, then I get news that my brother and his wife Liz are ready to embark on having a boat built....
They have been waiting for their daughters house to sell so she can buy hers and then that can get onto the water....happy days.
We're here in Wigan trying to make the decision to go towards Leigh or up the flight towards York.
Now there doesn't really seem like any decision to be made there does there, Leigh? York ? Mmm
