LJ turns down a walk - shock but not horror

What is there to say on a day so windswept and miserable that when I took him out, wrapped up from head to toe in foul weather kit, LJ turned for home after 200 yards? In his 7 years this is the first time this has ever happened.

So we are sitting in splendid isolation, warm and cosy and grateful, as always, we don't have to be anywhere anytime soon.

We are on a 48 hour mooring, but an EA chap came by earlier and encouraged us to stay put until the weather improves. Happy to do that if we have to.  So pleased we made the effort to move on late yesterday.

For those, like us, who haven't been on the Nene before, I hope a photo of the distinctive locks will be of interest.

It looks a bit daunting but actually isn't AND almost all are electric, always a bonus.

I hope most, if not all of you, have been able to stay dry and warm.
