Cake, Cleaning and Cheers!

With the good news we decided to stay put for the weekend like we normally do. At mid morning we were joined by Andy and Irene on n.b Kamili.. They moored up and then walked along to see us..We were having lunch and Al was still in her PJ's but we arranged a chat with them and were invited back to their boat for a cup of tea.. We got round to them at 2.30pm and were greeted with cake, Mmmmm. We had a good catch up talking about the cut and toilets and engine issues.. It was lovely to see them..
We left just as it was getting dark (and Del wanted a wee) as Al had her place booked in front of the telly as Strictly was on.. We had a warm and cosy night on Derwent6..
On Sunday the weather was a lot better and Del was up early doing the brasses and cleaning off the leaves bringing Derwent6 ship shape again.. He finished at 3.00pm just as Andy and Irene were going up the shops... We had planned to go up the pub to watch the football so we arranged to meet them at 4.00pm.. We had a lovely afternoon chatting about how the year had gone and what our winter plans were, with the football in the background and a pint in front of us..heaven!
We left just in time for us to get back to the boats and see strictly and run our engines for a hour.. It has been fun having these guys around this weekend...

Sat Hello to Irene and Andy from us if they are still nearby, we passed them by at Atherstone locks, they were all locked up or we would have stopped...

They're not a bad crew on KAMILI mare they? :))) we had great night with them on K&A last year. Alistair still talks of the Sally Lunn Irene bought him in Bath whilst I was off QISMA on a wander somewhere.
