Norbury Junction, Shropshire Union Canal

Can't get the hang of this new blogger!  The text formatting seems to have a mind of its own.  I am obviously doing something wrong.  At least I've found the spell checker tonight.

We set off early and the weather was lovely, though the wind was still very cold.  We stopped at the sanitary station at Wheaton Aston intending to do a pumpout but none of the cards seemed to work, so we went on and filled up with diesel at 78p a litre.  It was £1.02 at the Junction!

Then it was on to Gnosall where we stopped for a rest and a very good meal in the Boat Inn, then it was on to Norbury Junction for the night. 

David said he saw two kingfishers today - that's nearly as many as we saw all last year.

 Here is a birthday card I made using a Forever Friends Bear that came from a tissue box!  I cut him out using a circle Nestabillity and then cut a red scallop circle for a backing.  The base card is white and I cut out the lacy borders with a Martha Stewart edge punch to make it look like ribbon, once in rose paper and then again with the same red card as the scalloped circle.  I stuck these down vertically in the centre of the card, adding a red and white spotty ribbon tied in a knot down the middle.
