Skipton, Leeds and Liverpool Canal

David has made the front page of Canals and Rivers again (two months in a row!). There is also an article inside which we wrote about the costs of owning a boat with three pictures of our gorgeous boat.
We can certainly recommend Pennine Cruisers for help when the boat lets you down. Ian has fixed the toilet and tightened the fan belt so we can be off tomorrow. We just have to find somewhere to keep the porta-potti now we don't need it.
Hope the weather is better than today. It didn't stop raining until 5 o'clock.
Not sure I like the lady in the medallion of this card. She looks a bit haughty to me. Anyway she was matted onto red and green card and I added some Diamond Glaze to make it shiny. A yellow ribbon and bow was tied across the top and the picture fixed on top with sticky fixers. Finally I added the 3 square, red gems.

Hi Brenda & David,
Congratulations on your editorial, I will try to get a copy of the magazine for a good read. Glad you have a working loo at last - what a relief - in more ways than one....
It rained all day here in Brum yesterday and thunder and lightning at one point so we had a very lazy day, moved up to Symphony Court and had an exceptionally quiet night.
Our last day aboard today so will make the best of it.
Keep on blogging - always interesting to follow your exploits.
Kind regards
Linda & Kevin T
