Gone, gone...staying.

We heard from Dave George, the joiner who is going to add more cupboards to Caxton's galley, that we will not be able to get into Swallow Cruisers boatyard at Hockley Heath this weekend, we may however, be able to be accomodated the following weekend.  So it looks as if we will be staying on in Birmingham for another week at least.  Although there has been a  bit of boat movement over the last few days no one has succeeded in getting very far.  Brian Jarrett on Nb Kyle had to return yesterday after the ice at Netherton defeated him! I am bored witless at walking the same bit of towpath with the dogs though  they are quite happy it seems so here we go for another week of tramping the mainline and the Soho loop...

Dogs are great - they don't seem to mind sniffing and wee'ing on the same spots day after day! If only us humans were as easily pleased :-)

Hope youg et underway soon - I can't believe how persistent the ice is up there.

Ice free in Rugby so be patient as the thaw is slowly releasing it`s grip across the country.....until the next time.
