Thanks for remembering us.

I had a bad week last week - side effects of the medicines I'm on - so we looked for a route that did not involve too many locks. We thought - arrive this Saturday - shop Sunday ( 2+ weeks of gin and tonic for the other 3) and aim for Manchester. Not sure of the mooring at Manchester but it might be near the football ground. If we make it by Thursday we might make the Dezzy Donnoly concert - I've never seen him live so that would be a real treat.

Do you know the number of a taxi firm in Manchester?

we then thought a few days sightseeing -48 hour hop on hop off bus - round Manchester.

Not sure what we are doing on the second week but hope to make the Shroppie Fly on the Monday of week 3.

Its a shame about the boat crew- we enjoyed their sessions before - but they dont seem to fit into what we can do. Before - they did long distances each day. We like to have leisurely breakfasts and potter a bit more.

If I give you my husbands mobile it would be nice if you could join us for a gin and tonic ( or cup of tea) - but we don't always get 5G
( Or 1G). 07729 036 287. The boat is blue - called Pendeford.
