A working boat!!!

Our engine has been fixed - we now can get up to 2500 revs, 2000 when alternator switched on and toaster going!!! Absolute YAY!!! Good on Ian at Aqua Narrowboats for his perseverance and persistence, and his skill in fitting the new fuel pump.

So tomorrow morning we are off by about 7.30 and heading up past Alrewas. We are hoping to catch up with Tony and Helen from nb Holderness who've been moored in Shobnall Marina for the last few days.

Our aim is to get to Stalybridge for 13 July for Sybil's 70th birthday party, but if necessary, we will public transport there if we cannot make it in time.

We are so excited!

Had a beef kofta curry (Jamie O's 15 minute meals that take me a lot longer) for dinner and we had Mike C over - he is very entertaining. Kindly took me to Aldi and Tesco this arvo and the garden centre today. He is just as loud about drivers who don't move off give way intersections at the speed of light. He too is quiet and shy!
