We got back to Derwent6 today after making sure Terry (Del's step mum) is alright to move on herself. We have been helping put their house on the market and getting it ship shape for sale. It has been hard clearing out things, but we got it all done.
We have also been to three birthdays while we helped out. It was Jack's 11th birthday and he got a drum kit....... Del had a go and broke his seat! Oops let hope we can get it fixedHere you can see Jack playing his drums (without his seat and Samuel helping with one hand after breaking his arm falling off his scooter). We also went to Alex's 12th birthday where we were treated to a nice meal by Richard and Lisa. Then it was Zak's 18th birthday where we went to an American Diner and took over the place. We had great fun and thanks Steve for paying for the meal.
When we arrived back, Derwent6 was covered in cobwebs, but was in very safe hands. After a good clean up and a wipe down things are getting back to normal and it is great to be back home. (the brasses look like hard work though!).
The plan was to move off today but with the winds getting stronger and rain looking threatening, we thought we had just better stay put. Derwent6 has been in the Thames and Kennet marina for over seven weeks and it has put a dent in our budget, but we will get through it. The weather looks worse tomorrow so we will just sit it out.
The good news is that we are back and looking forward to seeing everyone who has supported us over the last couple of months...
