Well it's been a wonderful couple of weeks since our last blog.
We have had a visit from our eldest son Justin and grandson Hudson who came up to see us on Tuesday the 16th whilst we were moored at Braunston. As they were staying till Sunday we had plans of what we could do with them.
We know from their last visit how much Hudson had enjoyed the Tiger club in Daventry so on Wednesday we went there.
It was a wet morning and the place was packed with kids and their parents, Hudson had a really great time playing on the slides, ropes and swings.
Thursday we had decided to go to Gulliver’s Adventure land In Milton Keynes. It has a lot of rides that are suitable for young children. I thought Hudson might have been a wee bit scared of some of the rides but he absolutely loved them all the only people scared were his Dad and Granddad. Hudson’s first ride was the carousel, he then went on the Runaway train and screamed from the moment it set off, but when we got off he told his Nanny that he wants to do all the fast rides which he did mostly with his dad and he loved every single ride he is a very brave adventurous lad.

Friday we went to Rugby for the day to look around some shops so we could spoil Hudson, this we did and he was very pleased with his new teenage Ninja Turtle pyjamas and big bag of plastic soldiers.
Saturday was a lazy day on board Tacet with Hudson helping Nanny do some cooking

Sunday came to quickly as we had to say our goodbyes to Justin and our wonderful grandson Hudson, as usual at this time there was tear’s from Nanny & Granddad even though we know we will be seeing them soon as we are approach the end of our year’s adventure and will be heading back to Suffolk to join the rat race again !!!.
Monday morning we set off for a short cruise, in fact it was very short as after one hour we found some lovely moorings and moored up. We are moored near to Onley Young offenders Institution centre and not much else.

We went down the 3 locks winded and reversed to the water point, filled with water got rid of rubbish and other waste! and set off back up the 3 locks to moor for the night. Thursday we set off again in wonderful sunshine but a bit more of a chill in the air and moored at our Monday night mooring spot.
Friday we stayed put as Sharon has come down with a nasty cold so I polished one side of Tacet.
Today Saturday we set off back to Braunston for a couple of days we put the washing on and set off in sunny weather but with a bit of a breeze and moored in Braunston around lunch time.
