Five of these Robins flew off  on their merry way to Skipton, via the post office, after the first flock disappeared mysteriously on a national express coach, from milton keynes.
Jane finished crocheted christmas cards with the help of sister Liz, this was like a scene from Blue Peter, glue ended up all over Liz and the bows of Emily????, obviously she has not had a professional education in the spreading of glue unlike Jane who has an N.V.Q in it.
Any one out there wanting to send christmas cards our way , please can we ask that you sponsor Lewis instead, as he is doing the london Marathon in aid of a charity who is trying to protect Elephants from extinction, please go to   Thanks very much xx
Sculpture of Running man with Figures, at Wolverton.
we passed by this morning on our way to Cosgrove, this photo does't do it justice, as you can't see the small figures he's holding out in his hand, any way we like it!
View from the back cabin as we chug up the canal , on the look out for fire wood.
At Fenny Stratford last week, we filled up with Diesel in the lock, Supplied by Working boat Aston.
Brian continues with new doors, now complete with lining, just about to varnish.

  1. Hi Jane
    What a gorgeous little girl - how exciting for everyone. I see she's already tucked up in her blanket.
    Lovely robins, so cute.

  2. Little Florence is beautiful. Just a shame they don't stay that size for me. Is the blanket one of your creations?
