Gas Street Moorings, Birmingham

Went to Stratford on Avon yesterday for a mooch and noticed this sign in the basin.  Only 185 locks to London?  Must count them some time.

We celebrated 12 years on the boat on the 13th.  How the time flies.  And how much we have learnt in that time.  We were waterways virgins when we set off, with just the 2 days of the Helmsman's Course under our belts. I would certainly recommend the course for newcommers (and some oldies!).

Here's to the next 12 years.

Also noticed the sign above this shop.  Looks like a sentiment for a card to me.

Had to make a card for a lady who loved shoes.  David found a reason (not that he usually needs one) to chat up a shop assistant in Selfridges and he managed to get a Jimmy Choo card which they put in the boxes with the shoes.  I matted it onto some silver card and stuck it to the front of a deep lilac card blank.

On the inside of the "topper" I added the words which I printed onto some light lilac card, added lots of glitter and stuck it down on the inside.
