In limbo

Hi All,
Chris and I are feeling we are sort of in limbo on the cusp so to speak at present.  

We know the build will definitely happen but not when at the moment.  I guess it a bit like knowing your going to move house as all the paperwork is done but you don't have a completion date yet.

Fernwoods are pretty much up to their eyes in a boat launch and preparing for Crick at the moment so understandably AmyJo is a lower priority right now, not that I'm complaining.  It will happen so Chris and I are being patient and we feel we don't want to myther them with our questions and ideas while they are mad busy, there's no rush, but naturally we do so want to get started.

Problem is now, what to post about.  I don't want to bore you with non boaty stuff like the fact we got the council to collect our old freezer today (yawn) and I don't want to post for posting sake.

We are, like everyone else, getting really concerned about water levels.   The restrictions are looking pretty serious its a wonder anyone can move on the cut at all.  I look at the photos on the blogs and its clear levels are way down even on the cut, so worrying all round. 

On the brighter side, I did wash my car the other day and yes it did pour down for a few hours after I'd dried it.  So that in mind "I have a cunning plan sir" (said in the voice of Baldrick).  If everyone brings their cars to me, I'll wash them over several months and then we'll have plenty of rain!  Seriously though lets hope the rains do come soon!

Keep safe.

We have been blogging since last March with little canal related stuff as we are on the other side of the planet.
Personally I enjoy reading about the preparations to get to live the life on the cut.

Hi Paul,
I did wonder if people were interested in that sort of thing and you have reminded me that every day stuff is also part of the journey we are making to get on the cut so I'm going stop worrying and post anyway.
