Both sides now- plus some worries

First the worries.

We're still at Fenny Stratford, our fifth day. The reason is that our son in law Joe has been rushed to hospital in great pain and we're waiting to see if we are needed at home to help with baby sitting. Test and more tests. They know what it is but not the cause. We might know more today. I think he is over the worst.

Fenny is not a bad place to be stuck. Pleasant 14 day moorings, the shops you need, and reasonable transport links. Last evening we walked in to IKEA and broke a record. We spent only 99p!!!!

Anyway, whats this?



A mahl stick, some paint and rags, a tube of brushes. Yes, I 've been signwriting. On Sunday night the boat was called HERB on the starboard side,, but now it's called HERBIE on both sides. At last.
Look at those reflections! If we have more hanging about time I'd like to start painting in the shading. We may move up to Great Linford today. Not far. I suspect that is as far north as our cruise will take us now.

Sorry to hear that Joe is not well. All our best wishes for a speedy recovery.

P.S Signwriting looks fabulous!

Neil, first I hope your son-in-law is OK. Sorry we missed you at Braunston. Your signwriting looks excellent, I imagine the shading is somewhat trickier than the lettering.

Yes - I do hope Joe is sorted out soon, and that he's not as worried as those around him...

Best wishes for your son, Neil. That must be a worry for you. I hope the situation is better by the time you read this. Great Linford is such a nice name! And it also sounds like a really nice place.
