I had planned to touch up the bow and stern of the boat but that is just not going to happen now as the bad weather continues. We have had a few nice days but plenty of wind and rain too. I have managed to get the cream coloured strip on the bow completed and ready for the art work but little more.
This is also the time to get some Christmas shopping done. The Wedgwood/Royal Doulton Outlet Store is only a short walk from the canal so these days there is always plenty of Wedgwood and Royal Doulton gifts under the tree! It's handy to get Wedgwood to forward the gifts straight home rather than have to carry them with us, it was around £35 to get them back to Australia.
Rachael and I have both managed to do a lot of walking, with several retail parks and Handley (City Centre) all within easy walking distance. Currently the biggest challenge I face is keeping the batteries charged without increasing their memory, thus dropping more Ahr.
Even now as I write this blog just after midday, it is 10° and pouring rain, we have the engine running to charge the domestic batteries and we have the heater on.
