Canal Photos

We are now back from our canal holiday, Adam slightly redder (and browner!) than before.

We enjoyed our holiday on the canals, and managed to avoid taking any unscheduled swims in the canal or losing our boat.

Below is a slideshow of the highlights of our photos we took whilst on holiday. For the full selection, click here to view.

Day Two on the Canal

We picked the boat up on Saturday and already I have blisters on my hands from the ropes!

It’s been very hot today, we are very lucky with the weather. We have been through Chirk Tunnel and over the aqueduct, it’s not that high πŸ˜€

I will try an add a photo when we can find someΒ  3G!Β Β  Looks like there wont be much internet on this holiday!


Bathroom Day Two

Its looking good, as you can just see we now have the border on the wall as well as shower πŸ™‚

only had a one small leak today πŸ˜‰


Well we made a start on the bathroom today, replacing the bath and tilling behind the toilet and sink.

we were doing very well, we had just started tilling the floor and started to screw the toilet to the floor when my dad shouted to turn the water off – we had gone though a pipe! once that was repaired it didnt take us long to get back to where we were. Its been a long rewarding day and there is more to do tomorrow!

PS tiles go shiny side up πŸ˜‰

PS Just found another leak, water running down the wall into the kitchen. I think I’ve stopped it thankfully it wasn’t under the floor!

The re-wire is done!

Finally it is done. I have now re-wired our house and its nice and safe πŸ™‚

Next week are are going to start re-tiling the bathroom. Fun πŸ˜€

Holiday Booked :D

We have just booked a holiday on the Llangollen Canal in wales at the end of may (taking our chances with the weather). Personally I’m looking forward to crossing the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct pic below πŸ™‚
