Birthday Boy

I know its been a while since we blogged and we don't even have the excuse that we have been busy, but sometimes you just need a break.
During the winter months we don't move as much and sometimes stay for a week in one place, unless we're on a 48 hour mooring..

We have still been busy doing other things and meeting friends and family..
Al jumped on the train and went to Kent to see Hannah and they went to the Cinema and then Frankie and Benny's for a pizza treat.
Al stayed the night with Bernie and Sarah so a big thank you again for that..

One of the reasons for Al going down was to pick up Del's Birthday cards, yes Del was 58 on the 22nd November..
After opening his cards in the morning we jumped on a train to London and went to his favourite restaurant, the Hard Rock CafĂ© for lunch.

From there he got his present from Al, a new phone, and also brought a belt and a new shirt. The day finished by us going to a pop up theatre at Marble Arch called The New Orleans which had a themed bar.
On the side of this was a theatre showing the musical  "Five guys named Moe"  and we didn't know what to expect, but it turned out to be really good.
A massive thank you to everyone who sent cards, presents and messages, I got them all and they are on the walls on Derwent6, it is much appreciated.
So what else, well its been wood hunting, cutting and chopping , food shopping and hair cuts etc.

We have had very cold mornings and even had some snow, but Derwent6 has just been warm and snuggly, even Tooty can vouch for that...
Don't go Ahhhhh! He has come back with another rabbit, we can't be feeding him enough.

So we have been very lucky so far..
We still have a slight problem with our batteries which haven't been the same since one of them went down when they were new 6 months ago.. They don't seem to be holding charge so we might have to get on shore power to give them a boost..

Just catching up with your blog and saw your mention of staying a week at some places unless you are on 48 hour mooring, in case you don't know during winter 1st Nov -31st Mar all moorings become 14 day unless specifically signed otherwise, ie '48 hours all year round'.
