Change of plan no less

Up sharp yesterday morning, boated prepped, dogs prepped, a cup of tea and a slice of toast for the human crew and we were off to the water-point here at Marple to service Caxton before heading down the locks. Once serviced I wandered around the corner to find Matilda Rose and start preparing the locks for both boats. Their curtains were still closed and there was no sign of life - had they overslept? No. But we on Caxton had not switched on our phones and when we did there were no end of missed calls and messages to say the forecast was awful and MR was staying put. Silly Caxton crew.
We moored up again and went into Ashton to the Vodaphone shop to get my new phone and mobile broadband dongle. Now I just have to figure out how it all works...
