Kath has gone home to support Claire while Joe is back in hospital, having got worse again when he came home last weekend. Further tests have found the cause of his nasty pains and he should be ok in a week or two. I'll spare you the anatomical details, but it is a nasty inflammation in his digestive system and has apparently been building up for a long while. He comes home today and has some special medicine that should do the trick over time.
Meanwhile I wait here at Cowroast, doing DIY jobs aboard. Kath has just rung to say she is returning to Herbie tomorrow.
Internet dongle modem signals have been very poor, hence the lack of posts until now.
Since Milton Keynes we have travelled only a few miles each day, spending two days at Marsworth where I completed the shading on the starboard side signwriting. More on that in a separate post. Until today, the weather has been glorious and the countryside around the canal quite at its best. Here are a few photos to give you a flavour.
