RBS Six Nations Rugby

Thursday we headed off to Cannock, not sure why, we haven't been there before and we had run out of ideas to entertain ourselves. It was a bitterly cold day and the odd snowflake fell from a solid grey sky.
Cannock has nothing of note other than shops to offer so we didn't spend to much time there.

On the way back to the boat we stopped off at the Holy Bush in Salt for a glass of Endeavour and coffee.

Friday saw heavy rain but we did manage to get to the Exchange to meet up with Dot and Gordon in the afternoon which stretch into the evening.

Saturday we had a quick walk around Stone farmers market, then it was back to the boat for the start of the Six Nations.  England managed to lose after rallying in the second half to overhaul a 16-3 deficit ) when French substitute centre  Fickou flew past the English defence to score under the posts with 3 minutes left on the clock (not so Thicko). Sue wasn't very happy with the defensive performance , the shouting at the TV could be heard in the Bistro.
Another French score.

Sunday. What a glorious sunny day with a little strength to its warmth. Sue has been getting the washing done in the marinas laundry, we didn't want to spoil the peace and quiet running the engine to use the on board machine. I have been bees waxing the bathroom walls doors and ceilings twice, used a whole pot of the stuff, I'm just about out of any more elbow grease so it's time to put my feet up in preparation for the Paddy's v Jock's. My half Irishness side will be routing for Ireland
