What weather weather we are having! Yesterday we didn't move until 2pm when it eventually stopped raining. The towpaths are just continuous puddles or liquid mud. Today we left at 5.30am and got to Hemel Hempstead and are now moored opposite Sainsburys and listening to the rain again.

We finally bought a new TV. Our old one plunged to its near death when a lock swim jumped out and hit the boat while we were coming down the Lapworth locks. Because the new TV has to fit into the "hole" left by the older TV we had to check the new ones with a tape measure. Why were the majority that we liked 1/2" too tall?
The photo is of the lock just below the aptly named "Sewer Lock". The smell of detergent was almost overwhelming.

Now for a card for a 60 year old male. A photograph of the canal with a bridge and tree in the distance. I matted it onto 1 layers of blue card. I also made a strip of green patterned paper which I matted onto the darker blue card and added a black and white check ribbon and three black "gems". The sentiment is black peel-offs.
