  1. I have not been here for a while, well I have been HERE in my boat, but not here on the forum. But I am still coming. Cited I am. It id damn cold tonight in the wilds of Tattenhall. Winter drawers on!
  2. I come from a big family where plans set in concrete can mean anything from exactly that to.... 'well, I had no idea it was last weekend, did no-one think to remind me?' I will be watching the thread for clues!!
  3. Oh,,, right,,, that is much clearer now. Errmmm, thanks WW
  4. I am really looking forward to meeting some of you. Oh, that did not sound very good, it sounded as though there were some I was not looking forward to meeting and of course that is not the case! I am not sure, despite reading though the thread, where we are going or exactly when. But I will have grasped it all by the time that weekend comes. I will probably be driving - but I don't mind that. WW
  5. I will be there. I am so looking forward to meeting people actually in the flesh.
  6. That is a lovely thing to say ! Long may you remain happy x
  7. There seems to be a lot of this matchmaking about just now. I was in Wiltshire with some friends last week, one of whom always tries to 'fix me up' usually with men who are not remotely my cup of campari. But this time she has found a builder who lives on a boat, sounds slightly more promising (not that I am looking) but it is a pity that he is on the K and A and I have just moved from there! BSP - I had no idea you were a match maker. This thread has made me smile.
  8. Thank you everyone. They say they think it was a embolism (sp) She never had an unhappy day in her little life and that keeps me smiling when I think of her. A narrowboat, freedom, people who loved her and a massive enthusiasm for life in all its forms. I can learn something from her - probably more than the little scamp ever learned from me!
  9. My dog died today. Very suddenly. Just four years old. I am heartbroken. We are on holiday in Wiltshire. I feel like I am walking through fog, I guess only dog lovers will know how I feel. I know she was only an animal but she was my constant companion and friend. Simply that.
  10. I have a JRT. She is small enough to fit well into the space but 'big' enough to make a noise should anyone come onto the boat. She is friendly and happy and adaptable to whatever is going on... a ten mile walk or a day snoozing in front of the stove. She is happy to be part of any plans. A perfect boat dog.
  11. The woman did good x
  12. I could do with that at work then they would never let me leave my desk!
  13. Hello. I have not been around for a week or two and when I come back I see all this newness. I am fine with it and I guess I will get used to it but I have a real problem. I have red x's all over the place. I think they should be pictures. I am not sure what they ought to be, I have tried clicking them, right clicking, swearing and cursing at them but cannot get rid of them or open 'em. Is it my laptop? Is it a teething problem? I will keep trying to find my way round. Jo x
  14. Oh heck. This thread has given me a headache. Maybe the reason I have found people here helpful but sometimes bolshy is because I did not have a lot of money to spend or lose. But I cannot say that I have ever felt that I have been given bad advice deliberately, or at all really. Maybe a lot goes over my head... I have a massively busy life, but I do read most of what goes on here even if I do not always comment. But the OP smacks of someone scorned in one way or another. I am off to lie in a darkened room (not really I am off to cook my dinner) I am sorry you have had troubles Pirate, I don't know you but I know you must have been through it by the tone of your post. But you do seem to be generalising a bit, lots of people here are good and genuine folk. Anyway, I hope it goes better for you. Quick edit because I sent by mistake while pushing the dog off my lap
  15. There was talk of a Marina at Billinge near Northwich. Does anyone know if this is going ahead? I know it was turned down once a few years ago.
