Birthdays and Anniversaries

Tuesday afternoon saw us mooring in Banbury, the last space left, between Tom Rolt bridge and the footbridge into the The Quays shopping centre.

We walked to the town centre for some shopping and spent the evening quietly at our mooring.

Wednesday was our daughters birthday and she arrived with her partner and our grandson for the day. He (grandson) was six months on Tuesday and is so full of energy he did not stop for one moment all the time he was with us.

In the evening, after they had left we wandered round a very quiet town and had a drink in the Exchange (Wetherspoons).

Thursday was again spent shopping this time for food at Sainsburys, rode our bikes there, then Morrisons to which we walked.

It was market day in Banbury, Wozie likes markets, I do not, so she went off to have a wander on her own.
She had only been gone about 30 minutes and a voice said anyone there, it was Graham and Jane (Alnwick), coffee was taken and Jane had a look round the boat. Sorry Graham I think some more work maybe heading your way.

Good to see you both will catch you on the return.

After lunch we set off for Aynho.

Friday morning arose refreshed, was worried about disturbing the long term moorers (official) opposite as the generator was needed, need not have worried they were all up and started there engines before I started the generator and they were noisier than me.

Walked the mile to the village had a look round and returned to the Great Western Arms (by the canal), excellent food.

We have been afloat one month now and the enthusiasm is still with us.

It is my sisters birthday today, do not see her very often as she lives in Australia, met an Australian a few days ago that also lived in Perth but she didn't know her. ;-)

It is our nieces wedding anniversary today, 5 years, congratulations to you both.

That's it all the birthdays and anniversaries

Oh!!!! nearly forgot, it is our Wedding Anniversary today, only been 38 years.
