THURSDAY 11TH JUNE 2009
My Birthday!!! And not only Jacquie to spoil me but also, Cindy, Jackie, Pauline and Nikki, who arrived at 10.30am bearing cards, chocolate and wine, a good start to the day.
Jackie had been with us before, but to give the others a little taster, we cruised on three locks before turning round and stopping for lunch. The forecast had promised showers, but it was sunshine all the time except for a little shower whilst we lunched
I was the envy of all the other skippers that we passed, and greatly admired in the Waterside Inn for my harem of lovelies. Sadly the restaurant didn’t come up to our exacting demands, but we didn’t let that spoil the day.
Jackie was staying with us for a few days and we said goodbye to the others and bade them a save journey back to Surrey around the M25.
