Whitchurch on the Llangollen

hi all i know i have not posted a update on out blog for while and would like to apologise for this

so what have we been doing over the past few weeks ,  we headed for Ellesmere and topped up with food from tesco  and collect some fire wood from the local woods  , we were thinking what we were going to do for the winter   when i saw a add for a new Sainsburys was going to open in whitchurch and they were looking for workers  so Tina and myself  filled in the application on line and to our suprise we got offer jobs   so we had to head back to Whitchurch for the intviews  and got job offers  so we looked around for mooring and found out that whitchurch arm  trust offered winter mooring at a very reasonable price ,

this is view from our boat

the lift bridge is on the Llangollen canal
 it was good to see Chas and Ann of NB Moore 2 life http://moore2life.blogspot.co.uk/
so we going to be here for the winter and while we are here going to earn a few pounds

Back on blog

Hello all , to all that follow us on here sorry we not updated much lately last post was 1st of Oct so over a month  , so what has happen to us over the last month

we stayed at High lane for a few days as a boating friend was on his own and doing his kitchen up and i gave him a hand  also the engine on the boat had done 2000hours so had to do a service  while at high lane i had a phone call from my ex boss asking if i would help him out for a couple of weeks while he went on holiday and i said yes i could  this was going to on the 13th Oct ,  on the 8th of October we left High land heading for Wheelock , on the 10th Oct was Tina and mine 25th wedding anniversary so we went for a meal  at the Rising sun in scholar green  we had a very good meal and if anyone in the area should check it out http://www.brilliantpubs.co.uk/risingsuncheshire/

On Friday we got to wheelock and found a nice mooring , Tina stayed on the boat while i went back to Reading to help ex boss out


while at wheelock a man was walking his bird of prey a Harris hawk




 
After two weeks away from the boat i was glad to be back and on Sunday 27th Oct we set off again
