Walk to Trent Lock and a chance encounter

We, and friends walked our dogs to Trent Lock, which is not all that far from home.  Popped to the Steam Boat to be told that at 13:30 they were not taking orders until 14:30 because they were busy.  Now then, if that was my pub I would be taking orders, making customers clear of the wait.  Had they done that, we would have had another pint and waited.  As it was we upped sticks to the pub across the road. Odd.

Anyhow, walking towards Cranfleet, I spied Maffis boat Milly M, and not far Maffi himself having a chin wag.  Nice to meet you Maffi http://narrowboater.blogspot.co.uk/

Lola dog then decided to roll about in cow shit, what a pong.

We boated last weekend to Rugeley and back.  Next week it's half term so we are heading from Kings Bromley to Nottingham to Tixhall Wide and back to base.  Now it's a wee while since we did this trip (to Nottingham that is) and I am so looking forward to it.  I just have to get over a three day trip to Liverpool on business and a day and a half in Nottingham.

July it's a trip to Budleigh Salterton and August, back to the delights of Barcelona.  Then, the Trent and Mersey. September it's USA on business with, perhaps another visit to Gdansk. 

Last week was Bristol and Swansea.  I need to go to Newcastle and Southampton soon but not in the same week!  I enjoy travelling to meet my staff but it's simply not possible to be everywhere all the time.

In the meantime, the lovely Mrs D's business is going from strength to strength www.aureliabio.com  Not your usual run of the mill business but if you have need of a biochem CRO,look no further.
