We planned to move on the Wednesday which was a lovely day, but Tooty had other ideas!!!
He always gets the vibe when we are going to move from a spot he likes and has a funny way of showing us he doesn't want to move..
He went out at 4.00am and is normally back by dawn, when the first dog walkers come by, but no Tooty. Del did the brasses on Derwent6 as it was such a sunny day but still no Tooty at lunchtime. He got to the twelve hour stage at 4.00pm and Al was now getting very worried that something had happened to him.. We went out on a half a mile radius calling him and got nothing. It got to 7.30pm and then we heard a thud in the cratch, and he strolled in like nothing had happened. Al picked him up and burst into tears as he purred loudly in her arms..
We had to be at Brinklow for Friday and the weather was taking a turn for the worse on Thursday.
Friday looked ok early in the morning, so it was bed early and up early to get us where we needed to be.. It was still a bit dank, but we lifted the chains and pushed off . It was nice and quiet and there was plenty of water as we passed Clifton boatyard.
If you go down to the woods today, you're in for a big surprise!!!
