Goodbye friends.

Since the last post life on the canal has continued in the same vane as the previous 6 weeks. That is to say we have had quiet days where I have put more bl##dy paint on the roof (I once said maintenance on a boat was enjoyable) - after two and half coats of primer and one of undercoat it's started to get a bit monotonous. 

As well as being hampered/rushed by the weather, the high density rollers that I bought from Midland Swindlers are useless (after a short time the foam sleeve detaches from it's own inner core and bits of the foam come off in the paint). I used all six I bought to do one undercoat!

To offset this we have had some good times with our boating pals, Saturday evening at the Folly Inn was great fun, thanks to Linda from Mary H for booking the table.

So that was to be our final get together for some time, and as with the general rhythm of the canal it was time for us all to go our separate ways. We headed  to Wigrams Marina to leave FL while we attend a wedding. Our sofa and dinette cushions have arrived from Elite Furnishings and the leather captain chairs have found new homes in two different narrowboats.

One last sit in the captain's chair.

Thanks for the chair and ottoman Andy. We are enjoying it. Your new sofa looks smashing.
