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.

Ticket to Ride.

Thursday, 14th March 2013.
Kings Bromley Marina.

Well twenty tickets actually, for three separate return journeys between Birmingham and Portsmouth for one person, although I admit the three on the top right are collection receipt's it still seems a lot of paper.
I ordered and paid for the tickets online using my newly acquired senior rail card (it's saved me £48 so far this year) and collected them today from a very slow machine at Lichfield station.
After the station it was a drive to Oswestry Orthopaedic Hospital to collect my mother and take her back home to Shrewsbury after her knee replacement operation, considering her age and what's been done she was amazingly agile, just using a walking stick to get from the car to her bungalow, she's certainly made of strong stuff.
