No Direction

No Direction is our 70ft Narrowboat which is now home to my wife Jayne and myself, it was launched on 4th February 2008.

We spend the Winters in a Marina and cruise in the warmer weather.

Lighting Up.

Tuesday, 13th December, 2011.

We put our Christmas lights up today, well we put one set up yesterday but the second set didn't work and required a bit of fettling with the soldering iron today.

I also had to carry out emergency repairs to the bird table which had suffered in the wind.

Winter is certainly creeping up on us, no ice on the Marina yet, just a bit on the roof of the boat and car windscreen in the morning.

Jumped on the train into Birmingham last Friday for a look around, the Bull outside the Bullring shopping centre was feeling the cold as he now has his jumper on.

Not many boats around the city centre canals, in fact I only spotted two moored and one on the move, not many people either, probably due to the rain and wind howling through the bridges. 

Being moored close to Lichfield means we have two Wetherspoon pubs a short drive away, last Thursday we were in the Acorn for curry night which we though was less than average, but tonight we were in the other Wetherspoons, the Gatehouse for Steak night and it got 9 out of 10.
