After more rain yesterday it was time to battle the towpath once again. The mud has been bad again, but we had another frost and nice blue skies last night, which would make things a bit easier with a crunch under foot..
We had to put our little heater into operation and warm up the batteries before they could be charged for an hour before we left Tooty on guard for the day..
We set off to the station and got the train to Coventry and then down to Reading, and on the way we could see just how bad the flooding had been as it looked like we were back on the boat looking out the windows.
In the evening it had been arranged that there was going to be a joint birthday party with one of us (Shelly) being 40 and the other coming up to 60 in a group of ten.. So the cake has 100 on it.. That other, by the way, is Del!
This one mind you might get opened a bit earlier..
We stayed the night and then went out for breakfast to a lovely garden centre close by.. It was full of Christmas stuff and we have to admit it did start to get us in the Christmas spirit.. The breakfast was amazing and a very good price as well.
Thanks again everyone for arranging a lovely night out and for your presents.. The big day is looming up!
