My middle age spread is disappearing John took Mandy to Oxley Marine just past Autherley Junction to abandon the car so they can cruise with us for a few days. It will be strange to have a crew.

Leisurely week, We moved from Festival park to Eturia at the industrial museum. We needed to hang about until tomorrow before going up to Engine Lock on the Caldon for Rob Shone to start fitting the new kitchen, dinette and cratch board.I have been busy I have moved the Tv Ariel  mount onto the side of the boat and hoobie has had a few long walks. The advantage of staying here is that we can use the BW facilities and 2 washer loads were done. We left him on board yesterday walked into Hanley and mooched around the shops we could both go in not one holding the dog outside. I have spent each
 evening trying to work out the relative positions of each vent on the Squirel stove to keep it in, burning smokeless fuel its most certainly a work of art still not successful yet. We met Mum in Hanley today we went home had lunch then went with Mum Sister Brother in law and niece to crematorium to put some flowers on the Garden of remberance it is 5 years since Dad died. Mum goes every year so it was nice to here to go as well this year.
