Still Here

Hey everybody.

Sorry for the lack of updates this year. Our plans to move and travel have been put on hold for the forseeable future, due to Sheena's mums continuing illness. In her month off, Sheena is completely shattered and needs to recuperate, before she has to go back and do it all again. The marina have very kindly allowed us to stay on for awhile, so that I don't have to solo up and down the river, while she is away. I don't mind moving the boat on my own, but I do worry about safety and the law of averages. So far, I've been lucky.

We still enjoy the occasional trip out, when we can, but it's also been the worst, most protracted, drawn out and unpleasant winter of the last 100 years. So days when we can do that, have sadly been few and far between.

Apart from that, we are in good spirits. The boat still floats, and is in good working order. Sumo is in good health. He recently enjoyed his 9th birthday, and is still running around like an idiot.

We've burnt three times as much fuel as we would on an 'average' winter, but even though the weather has been dreadful outside, inside we are cosy.


  1. Hi Brian & Diana. Thanks. Nice to hear from you. It snowed last week, but it does look like winter is finally releasing it's grip.
