Hungerford, Kennet and Avon Canal

 And yet another "Moored like a Twat".  What is it about the K&A that everyone thinks they can just use the lock landings for moorings.  This one had obviously spent the night there as all the curtains were drawn

We arrived in Hungerford to find a large Land and Water barge thingy on the visitor moorings and a wide-beam, so we had to moor up below the lock on spikes.

Heard another cuckoo today, and the May blossom is really blossoming and the perfume is wonderful.  I so love this time of year.

Got treated to a Chinese tonight.  Beef and Tomato, lovely.

Now for something a bit different from a card.  A tissue box cover.

This one was made with pink card and covered with pink and orange papers and surfboard themed papers.  Three tropical looking flowers were added to the top for decoration.

The box is made by measuring the sides of the original tissue box and then adding a lid with a hole cut out in the top.  The lid is actually fixed to the sides of the cover and the tissue box is inserted through the bottom.
