For the record

So I can refer back to it

We have 134 hours on the electronic hours counter I fitted at the early part of 2008.

I checked the batteries yesterday

After standing for several week

Starter 12.5 volts
Leisure 12.1 volts

On charging

Starter 14.4 volts
Leisure 14.25 volts

After 2 hours under charge

Starter 13.84 volts
Leisure 13.67 volts

Unclean unclean.......

So the last time I was on Waterlily with my wife Rachel I discovered I had shingles. We got on board yesterday and last night I had a temperature and started some kind of cold, some might say man flu......

What a bugger, we were thinking of going for a short cruise today but I really don't feel up to it. It gives us a good excuse to just kick back and relax, something we do not do a lot of. I have even finished my latest book, and I take a long time to read a book !

All over bar the shouting....

Christmas day was spent in the evening with my lot - all but one (niece) was there 19 in total, and today we hosted the in laws, 22 in total including my lads girlfriends, so a very large family Christmas was the rule of thumb for this year. Tomorrow if all goes to plan we should get aboard Waterlily - the perfect antidote to a Christmas of excesses,

I'm not dead yet.......

Despite two of my family dreaming of my untimely demise (nice). The lack of postings is commensurate with a busy existence in all things non canal related. For the last three weekends the intention has been to visit Waterlily but events have kept us land bound.
We will get on board (I just hope all will be well when we get to her) just after Christmas and I'll let you have some pics them.

I the mean time 'Happy Christmas' I hope it is peaceful and accompanied by good health and family contentment.

Take care
