On the Wednesday Al was back on the train down to London and then onto Sevenoaks to meet up with friend Sarah for lunch.. They ended up having a cheap meal in Prezzo's because Al had some Tesco's vouchers to use up.. They had a lovely day catching up and while down Al picked up the post.. Del spent the day clearing out the engine room of stuff as it was looking like a garden shed in places..
On the following day we set off as the weather had a window, but first Al had a surprise as we had won £140.00 on the lottery.
We then went under the bridge and topped up with water and got rid of all the rubbish which filled the bin up from shopping..
We were then really set to go, and made our way past all the moored boats along this section..
We felt very smug with all our tanks topped up and gas and heating fuel if we need it.. it had felt a long day but in fact we had only gone a few miles and done two locks.. Best not over do it!
