He's At It Again

Liam was at it again last night. Baking that is!

This time he made a lovely apple and blackberry pie with apples from our garden and blackberries foraged from the nearby Rivelin Valley.

Very nice it was too served hot with some nice low fat custard. Yummy.

Back to Normality

After the ordeal of last week's infected wound and a barrage of antibiotics to take away the infection and any other living organism in the body, it was nice to finish the last dose of drugs early yesterday morning, jump in the car and drive to work. Oh for a sense of normality.

The wound will still be some weeks away from properly healing but is now in a state where I am much more comfortable and its care is much less time consuming and painful.

So it is back to the grindstone and grafting away the hours each day until the next weekend comes around and we can escape to the boat once more. This coming weekend we should even escape the Fossdyke for a few days. The furthest we have ventured since coming back from Scotland!

We had another sensible E Pontoon fancy dress party!

This year's theme was anything nautical.

It is a breezy day at Burton Waters.

We have had a lazy morning with a slow breakfast and are soon heading down to Saxilby for our annual E Pontoon fancy dress party.

After a week of rest I am ready for a few days away on the boat. We will still be taking it easy though, doctors orders and I still have the rest of my antibiotics to finish off.

I'm sure we will enjoy it though.

With nothing much to do this week it has been the ideal opportunity to get some research in for next year's Thames trip.

I think we will have another great trip from what we have found so far.
