Yet again I have been remiss in posting on this blog!!! My excuse is that we had a busy, and successful,  year and then, when we returned to the basin we started preparing for the Winchester Christmas Market.

The Market went very well and several previous customers, friends and aquaintances came along to say hello!

The weather on the second weekend was not good (which is probably an understatement!), but all in all we had a good market and learnt a lot from the experience. While doing the market we stayed with Andrew’s sister and brother in law, for which we were very grateful. It was very nice to be able to go back to a warm house and have a meal cooked for us.

We returned to the boats for 2 nights before driving on up to Manchester to spend Christmas at our daughter, Lucy’s, house where our younger daughter, Alice, was able to join us as well. A very enjoyable time was had by, all including an afternoon doing the ‘Crystal Maze’ game, which was fabulous!

New years eve was spent back at Hawne basin with boating friends.
