A quiet few days at Stone. I like Stone. We managed to move into Stone on Friday afternoon.
We plan on staying here til tomorrow Tuesday I have a new ignition switch on order from
Stoneboatbuilders.The old one doesn't like the cold. We have had Visitors this weekend Anne
and Nigel Beryls sister came with our mail and ebay delivery.The logistics of delivery were
 amazing.John delivered to Anne late very late Thursday night and Anne arrived here Friday
                                               Must get the paintbrush out and touch in all the red oxide.
Filling the water tank Anne supervising

                                                             Where does all this rubbish come from?
Narrowboat Sokai Has escaped. Mum is a lot better 8 weeks we have been stranded here.
We returned to the boat yesterday afternoon filled Vickie's car. Well each time we came
back to the boat we took something else to the house well it all had to come back aboard.
We have cleaned from top to bottom whilst still on shoreline its amazing how dirty an empty
boat can get. We have moved to Eturia Industrial museum for a few days until Ashton lock
opens. Then we are going to make for the NEC Mandy(Daughter) is coming to see Pink
and Meatloaf not at the same time so we will be a hotel for a few nights.and we get to see her.
Sitting in the sunshine with my coat on but all the boat doors are open.Washing drying well.
Bye for now

Still stuck in a house Mum still not fit to leave yet. Nb Sokai is famous well we feature on a TV program
about the Shewsbury and Newport canal. They were filming it when we were at Norbury Junction. If you
follow the link you can watch the program, we are on the left the Grey boat with bikes on the back
Hoobie can be seen at the back door watching the world go by.
It is a very interesting program not sure if it is scheduled to hit the TV screens hope it does.
More news when we know we are moving on. We have booked some accommodation in Barnstaple for
our trip back to see the Doctor so that we can continue phoning for our repeat prescriptions. Hoobie
might just go for his annual check up and trim while we are there.
See you all soon Bye
