Then we did manage to sit down and you guessed we fell asleep. Al did manage to make some mince pies, with loads of rum in them, and then we had a nice steak for dinner, no wonder we fell asleep!!!!

Steady trip to Cosgrove
Thick fog here this morning, so we waited for it to clear a bit before heading off. We had non event journey and the scenery wasn't that good to shout about, through this section, but it was nice and quiet and trouble free. We did go over two aquaducts and passed this fellow made out of scrap metal. We managed to get to Cosgrove, before it got to cold for us to continue and the temptation of the fire glowing was to great. We moored up and the mooring warden ( Hazel, a nice lady ) came along with a welcome notice and made us feel very welcome with it. It's a nice feeling when someone is looking after the boat when your not around.We went for a short walk in the afternoon just to stretch our legs, before we sat down and warmed up. While we were just sitting comfortably the coal boat came passed and with a side window out and a shout we picked up five bags of Stove Glow to see us through this cold snap, we're supposed to have.
