Had a lovely weekend just gone, spent it over at mine. On Saturday we wandered in to Keighley. Yesterday we went to Hawarth and did the Railway Children walk, taking in some of the locations from the film. I took quite a few photos.
Having an easy time at the moment but will be getting back into things soon.
I’ve missed Scouts for the first time in ages tonight. It all happened on Sunday night- I had a bit of a funny turn, (Sarah: no he didn’t, he had a full-blown seizure and have you tried getting a 13 stone man in the recovery position when he’s managed to wedge himself in between the oven and table and is both convulsing and choking at the same time) which was certainly scary for Sarah. After briefly (Sarah: 1 hour is not brief!) forgetting our wedding and the fact that we were married, I spent the night in hospital recovering. Actually I felt a bit of a fraud because apart from a mild headache I didn’t feel the slightest bit ill afterwards. (Sarah: seizures certainly don’t affect his appetite, believe me!)
The doctors feel that this was a one-off occurence, but I have to stop driving for a while (Sarah: a year!!) just to be sure. This makes sorting my life out doubly important. Sarah is happy to do much of the driving for a bit, but I can’t impose too much.
I’m so happy to be with Sarah, her love and support over the past few days have shown what a wonderful woman I’ve married.
(Sarah: When I promised to love him in sickness and in health I didn’t expect to have to dial 999 for an ambulance nine days later! I hope he doesn’t test all the clauses in our wedding vows as rigorously as he’s tested this one!)
Friends have alerted me to the perplexing case of the missing narrowboat.
Holly was hired from Middlewich Narrowboats on the 9th March by David King, who did not return on 23rd March. Holly was last sighted on 20th March in Shropshire, and on 21st April heading South away from Birmingham, and a possible sighting in Leicestershire, but given it’s been a month since he could be anywhere. To complicate things three weeks ago Holly had been painted blue, and may even have been decorated further in the meantime. I understand Holly can be identified by her windows- which are one piece rather than having opening lights. Mr King could be heading towards his home in St Albans.
Thefts of canal boats are extremely unusual, the owners have only known of one other go missing. The loss of Holly is costing them £1000 per week in lost revenue.
David himself has not returned home, so is presumed to still be with the boat, and his family are worried about him. If you do, when wandering out and about, see David or Holly please contact Cheshire police.
Friday was just perfect. We could not have asked for a better day. Now we are sitting on the patio of our suite overlooking a lake. It’s just lovely.
More when we return.
