Tom ex Waiouru asked what happened from a comment on his blog.

Answer is copied here.

Hi Tom fine till September 2016 last year then no. 1 daughter needed rescuing from London we no longer were a Darby and Joan with time to do what we wanted and so much spare time as Jack had bought a house and was doing it up. Karen is a home maker and we were now 4 at home again if only for another 6 months as it turned out. So it went on the back burner we were intending a Narrowboat holiday again this September 2017 but it gradually got ruled out as I’m suffering with bad joints in knees and ankles have done all my life reactive arthritis, but 2 times it has hit before I got over it in 3 to 6 months on drugs this time much worse. So I can’t walk far cycling is ok but not hills or big distances. But I just had treatment and new drugs by injection so hopefully be right soon. (Still no better now had pulse infusion steroids upper meds etc a couple of months since writing the comment on Toms blog).
See how the health goes and then it will back on the front burner again. (Won’t be this year going to be a few more yet I concede).
Cheers for asking.
I can post that in my blog now!

The search for a boat nearly started but then

So Karen (the bank manager) and I were getting set to quite nearly be in the market for a boat around mid October 2016.
Ada-Jane was settling in a new job in London after finishing Uni in Falmouth.
Son Jack has bought his first house with his girlfriend and so, with both our jobs getting more stressful by the week it seems, the green light was given.
I have always had alerts from Apolloduck and eBay etc. So always knew when a boat in our lowish price range came up.
So here was one.

imageimageimageimageimageSo the story of this one is that it was far to expensive for what it was, 21.5k I think the vendor was asking. I offered 11k. The vendor came back a week or so later saying they had been offered the full asking price! Good luck on them, then a month or so later it reappeared down to 16k but still too much. No reply to my 10k offer this time! I started a thread on CWDF here  Here about it. Many interesting replies.

Then low and behold as the photos above show I happened on it while walking along the K&A towpath with Karen. See page 2 of the thread I linked to above.

I’ll leave the But Then to a future post..

Final A2 art piece

Janey's Blog

This is what I did as my final piece for art A level.

Each piece represents me; every part relates to something in my life.
Firstly the Glastonbury festival top….
This represents my love for glastonbury festival. I tye dyed the top originally before sewing on paper origami and embroidering. The paper that was manipulated is an image collage of all things glastonbury. E.g The collage includes: guides, wrist bands, maps etc.

The child’s dress represents my childhood. Discretely embroidered on to the dress are images of me when I was young. Also images of the drawings I did at a young age and have kept for memorabilia. The pink barbie shoes are also significant as I loved collected them as a child.

Lastly the bikini represents my love for holidays and places I’ve visited. Images have again been sewn on to the matching garments. The images are of places…
