We woke up to the rain hammering down on the roof but by 11am it had stopped and we were underway – destination The Folly at Napton for dinner. Richard said that it was cold as we cruised along so I stayed inside in the warm! Even Muffin was shivering and had to have a coat on.
We moored up on the visitor moorings at Napton. The towpath was so muddy – why can’t CRT put scalpings down on official visitor moorings.
It was such a grey afternoon, so I immersed myself in transferring scribbles onto a spreadsheet for our holiday in Spain next year! The scribbles were from a few weeks ago and really needed sorting while they were freshish in my mind. I find that if I don’t look out of the window and think about sun and holidays it doesn’t feel too bad!
I had to put my wellies on to go to the pub and was terrified of slipping over! I changed into shoes to go into the Folly but I don’t think I need have bothered! On our table was a beautiful bouquet of flowers from the children and my sister.
I love the Folly with it’s eclectic collection of bric-a-brac. I'm just glad I don't have the job of dusting it all!
It was then back to the boat. I have to say that it wasn’t the most exciting birthday I have ever had – if only the weather had been better!
I think I have managed to delete the webring – I would appreciate feedback if it appears again. Thanks Tom for your help 😊
