Hello Out There!

Just thought I best write a quick post to let you all know I haven’t left the planet!

Face Book has a lot to answer for, I tend to keep up with what's going on, on there, oh and the wonderful, Just Canals Forum Page!

For those of you on there hi, those of you not it would be nice to hear from you. I have to add at this point this isn't an advert for the site, it's just me saying how much I like it! For me it's just a daily reminder of all the funny, thoughtful, helpful and passionate boaters who are out there; not to mention the invaluable advice on there too.

Well I am managing to keep warm on Tickety Boo, she is a lovely cosy boat. There is nothing more satisfying than coming in from work, being greeted by Bobby dog, who does a kind of tap dance with excitement, then lighting the fire and wallowing in the heat that slowly seeps through the boat. 

Up till now I haven't had to boil snow, as I did one year, as the standpipe froze. Then again the winter is not through yet! It wasn't a problem and I felt very girl guideish!

I saw my first snow drop poking through the snow today with little buds of white, they are lovely to see, but even more special surrounded by snow!

There is a small paddock not far from my mooring that's carpeted fence to fence with hundreds of Snowdrops, I really must make an effort this year to get photos.

Well hope your all keeping warm in this snowy cold weather, before we know it we will be in to Spring and hopefully a decent Summer...we can live in hope!
