Several people have commented that the photos on Tilly’s post today were blank, not visible. We can see them. So I’m going to try posting it again, but with the photos added in different ways. I’ve just done a test and no matter which way I add photos, watermarked or not I can see them, I’ve also tried with different browers.
If you get this by email I suspect you can see the photos, but it would be interesting to know.
Sorry for posting this again, but Tilly really wants her photos to be seen.
This is simply not on!
Tom went to the marina this morning, where he’d taken their life jackets last week. For some reason he didn’t bother taking mine, just left it in the cat proof cupboard next to my super yummy treats! I‘m working on a way to get in there, several methods have failed so far, but I’ll keep on trying.
Anyhow, the man at the marina said their jackets weren’t back yet, and they hadn’t been sent off until Friday! Tom wasn’t too pleased at this as we are all waiting around for them to come back before we carry on to Yorkshire. They like to wear them on the river bits, I don’t really like to wear mine but if it means I can watch them moving the outside for a while then I’ll cope. I have asked if I could move the outside for them as I still have my jacket, but She isn’t convinced that I’d be able to move the tiller and not get distracted by the birdies.
So day in, day out we wait. Even the really slow boat has caught us up! The outside here is not very good, too many bikes and not enough friends to find. At times it really isn’t worth going out there at all. I go to the back door but when it’s opened I remember that all they have been doing is waiting, not moving the outside. So a quick walk down the cat walk is all I can muster, you’ve got to keep the steps up even whilst waiting.
I’m starting to run out of sleep, we’ve waited so long now. I even have to remind Her about the red dot, but that game is getting boring now.
Does the man at the marina not realise that here I am, stuck with this outside, waiting to get to Yorkshire for some proper shore leave. The Yorkshire outside is far superior to Nottingham’s and the outsiders don’t talk about ducks all the time!
They say I may not be allowed out when we’re on our way for a few days. Tom thinks I might be allowed shore leave at Hazelford Lock where it will be our own island, but She’s not too sure I’ll ever come back! It sounds quite good to me.
Doesn’t the marina man realise all this waiting is torcher!! Just get Tom and Her jackets back so we can get going, we don’t want to miss the next tide and wait even longer with this outside!
0 locks, 0 miles, 1 outside, 0 life jackets, 0 friends, 2 pathetic trees conquered, 4 Dreamies at a time to stop the boredom, 3 sleeps left this month, the rest are all used up.
2 boaters who will definitely be servicing their own jackets next time!
