With Sarah in Oxford, it was strange waking up in the morning with nobody beside me! I took a short walk up to the Red Bull services (nothing to do with the drink manufacturer!) to get a few pump-out cards and get rid of some rubbish.
I then set off for Screwfix in Tunstall again, to pick up the drawer runners that they didn’t have in stock yesterday. This time I took a different route, avoiding the traveller caravan park and territorial cows. Instead I had a lovely park and lake… and a dry ski-slope which I wasn’t expecting in little old Kidsbury!
One of Sarah’s delicious flapjacks helped keep me going until I reached town. I got a coffee there – my first latte for 3 weeks – and then cheated and got the bus home as it was spitting with rain and my legs had had enough of walking for the last 2 days.
A quick stock-up in Tesco and then back to the boat for a lunch of local Staffordshire oatcakes. Meanwhile Sarah enjoyed a pub lunch with Barry and Rosemary down at the Greyhound.
In the afternoon I got the new drawer runners sorted and did a few other odd jobs on the boat, before relaxing with some computer games and TV. Sarah phoned and we sorted out the security camera at home – proof below that it’s now working again!
Oliver is still sitting comfy on his mooring, waiting with me for Sarah to return tomorrow 🙂
