About Me

My photo
70 now and our five wonderful years aboard our narrowboat Skyy seem along time ago. Jacquie, allowed me to build my replica three wheeler kit car, which was a great success. Now it's time to start on a bigger project and that is to make a good Triumph Stag even better, here goes.

We did indeed walk into Market Bosworth, and a very attractive little town it is. A mixture of old timber framed thatched and Georgian architecture and to complete this idyllic scene, the church bells were ringing. Very wittily there was a smart fish & chip shop called the ‘Batter of Bosworth’

We returned with Sunday papers and tub of ice cream to compliment Jacquie’s superb apple cake.

Before we pulled the pins, a full Monty brunch was partaken of, but we saved the cake and ice cream for later.

When we did get around to pulling pins, we also pulled the boat back to the water point which was conveniently situated by the winding hole (a turning point) and when filled with H2O I asked Brian to give the front of the boat a little push to initiate the 180 degree turn. Brian was very keen and despite my suggestions that enough was enough, he continued to push until he was lying horizontally over the water, the outcome was inevitable. No hurt but to dignity and as the day was warm, shoes and trousers dried out by the time we arrived back at the Lime Kiln pub
We said a reluctant goodbye to Marilyn & Brian after putting a date in the diary for a return visit.
