Happy Birthday David!!

It's been a busy weekend for us..
We hired a car from Enterprise at a great offer of £11.00 a day, and were picked up from Debdale marina Saturday morning and taken to Leicester. We've got to say that the service they gave us was just fantastic, After picking us up the guy who collected us washed the car we were hiring and then sent us on our way. On the way down we stopped at Bluewater shopping centre and sorted out the phones and had a right touch. We went there for a upgrade on the phone we have already, but were given the option of have a credit on the phone bill of £150.00 (Uh! No brainer really, as there was nothing wrong with phone we already had) We were pleased we asked.

We went down south as we had been invited to David's 17th Birthday meal. Happy Birthday again mate!
We would like to thank the Winter's for putting us up for the night and giving us a great time!

We then thought we would put the car to good use, so popped into Sainsbury's to pick up the shopping for the week and then on to Halfords to pick up inner tubes for the bikes and engine and gearbox oil for Derwent6.

When we got back to the boat it was quite cold. The ice was beginning to melt, but there was a nip in the air again, and the wind had picked up, so Al lit the fire while Del unloaded the car. We were soon warm and toasty again listening to the wind rattling the hearts on the chimney.

We will be settling down to Dancing on Ice and watching the highlights of the football tonight. Hopefully we'll be on the move tomorrow...

Sounds like you were in the right place at the right time at the weekend ... the temperature reading from the car was -3 and that was at midday on Saturday!

Hopefully you'll find yourselves thawed out enough to continue your adventures this week.

Take care and see you soon.
