We travelled down to Kent today from Stafford, at a bargain price of £6.00 each way. Touch! It was our niece Ella's 3rd birthday, and we celebrated with a party and fireworks at Cliff & Louise's (Del's brother). We had a great evening, and Cliff brought out Abbot the owl to say hello. Thanks Cliff & Lou, we had a really good time as always.

Monday 15th November
Today we spent the day with Pam & Alf (Al's Mum & Dad) which was lovely, and helped out with a few jobs that needed doing. In the afternoon it was down to Ashford Hospital as Len (Del's Dad) had an operation that day to have a stent fitted. He was in good spirits and recovering nicely.

Today was Christmas shopping day!!! We trooped off to Bluewater on a mission! After a really successful day, all the pressies were stored away ready to be wrapped. In the evening, Del went off to the pictures with Bernie, Steve, David & Hannah.
Wed 17th November
We spent today travelling back to Derwent6, stopping in Stafford on the way to pick up some supplies, before catching the bus back to Great Haywood. We just made it before the rain. We could see our breath inside the boat, but we lit the fire, and after a hour and a half Derwent6 was soon warm & toasty again.
