Then Alistair back to see if he was required for sluice duty and I went into Newbury to relieve myself of a £50 John Lewis voucher which is part of our credit card deal. I didn't have the luxury of being extravagant and buying myself some luxury item because the voucher already had 'second set of new bedding' written all over it. When I changed the colour scheme we were fine with one set, having 24 hour access to a tumble dryer. Second set needed before we depart the marina.
Back for series of domestic duties and before I knew it we were on our way back to collect our boy.
And despite efforts with sluices, if we have much more rain, there will be more than this bit of towpath flooded as the river is only two feet away to the right of the photo. Nothing to what is happening elsewhere. Have you seen the photos at Abbingdon?
