Luncheon Meets

I am here in Essex visiting Mother ahead of the great escape to life aboard Caxton. Yesterday we met cousins Daphne and Bill for a lovely lunch at The Ship in Gidea Park. They have donated a redundant folding bike to the kit for Caxton - thank you both!
Last night it was off out with brother Bob, sister-in-law Chris and nephew Jack, future lockboy and general factotum, for dinner at The Sorcerer Inn in Wickford. And today, yes, you've guessed it, lunch out yet again. This time at The Hawk in Battlesbridge for my Mother's best friend Kathy who was celebrating her 79th birthday! So for now I am all lunched out - this is the life.... now where is that number for Weightwatchers?

The trouble with narrowboats is that they require narrow hips - take it from one who knows!

Good to see that you're honing your pub-crawling skills in advance of having a boat (when you can practice them to perfection)!
I think we need a big countdown clock (as per the millenium) - it's all so exciting!

Hi Daphne
You have found your way to the Caxton blog then? The bike will be just fine for a bit of lock-wheeling I'm sure. Look forward to seeing you aboard the boat when we get down towards London in November.

I guess the 'handsome creature'you are referring to is Ramsey then?
