Met up with our friends Fred and Lisa on Saturday when they started their 2 week narrow boat holiday from Norbury. We went for a meal Sat night at the Norbury junction where it was Sizzling Saturday, so we all sizzled and jolly good it was too! Sunday morning we both cruised south to Wheaton Aston where we had a few pints on arrival. Then Dai cooked dinner - roast pork and all the usual accompliments, followed by my fruitie sponge all washed down with wine of course. Great evening with good company.
Monday morning Fred and Lisa went off towards Birmingham and we’ll spend the new week around here ready to meet up with them on their return to Norbury for - no doubt - a few pints, meals and fun.
Last day of Nov today so December tomorrow folks! Saw our first Christmas tree a few days ago and just spotted another on front of a boat moored just opposite us --- oh dear!
