Pulling together

Well yesterday's Sunday lunch up at the Old Plough was very good, we all had the roast lamb with all the trimmings and mint sauce, mmm.
Luckily we decided to watch Country File in the evening as it was not the programme that was advertised in the Radio Times. Most of it featured the Kennet and Avon Canal and what life is like living on board a narrow boat.Did anyone else watch this btw?
Today we had a knock on the door and it was Paul shouting out "coal delivery", so out with the trolleys again and along the muddy tow-path we went to collect ten bags of coal each. Ian and Alison on the fuel-boat Gosty Hill had arranged to have the coal sent by van to us, how thoughtful is that? A BIG thank you to them!
Afterwards we were invited for tea by Graham and Betty who served up some delicious warm apple cake  just taken out of the oven, mmm very tasty it was too. Paul and Lynne also joined us and we chatted over glasses of beer and wine for an hour or two before returning home to our boats.
I  think we might all sleep well tonight.

Hi both
Would love to meet up before we all set off, but can't do tomorrow or Friday as we're seeing friends and obviously you're tied up Thursday, but could do Sat or Sun if you're still around? Let us know if one of these days suits and maybe meet for a spot of lunch? x ps yes we did see countryfile btw, got a phone call saying 'put the telly on' :-)
