Well I Brought a Boat!!!!

Well thanks to a tip off from a friend, Sunday 24th January 2016 saw my partner and me taking  a trip down South to Egham to  view what is now my new home TEMPLE BELLE.




She is an old lady  but from what i've been told she was built by a good old English company she's not huge but has potential, she is staying on the Thames for the next few weeks until I can  get a mooring back in Milton Keynes.

I can't believe how much I have got for her, i'm only hoping it all fits aboard!!!! the fact that I'm a bit of a wool addict may mean i have to get rid of some of my stash but here's hoping i can find spaces for it all. My Temple Belle will be a work in progress for a good year or so I'd say, but she is all MINE!

The first couple of days  were a whirl of money transfers and insurance but she will be worth it.

Next weekend will see us heading down south to take the first load of stuff of  going to try and be good and keep her at a minimum till she is back home.

The one thing is we will get to know her well when we make the journey home with a good week we think just taking things slow through what I've been told is 90 locks !!!!


A review of life

For those that are reading what i blog for the first time and are interested in my background here is the first blog post of what is to be my new life.

I'm a 50 something lady that was married for 30+ years this all came to an end in September 2015, the new life that i have chosen is to to own a narrowboat and make my own mark on her and then if i can keep in good health then maybe when i retire i will become a continuous cruiser.
