A day in Cheshire
As I left the marina in the dark at 7.15 this morning, there was an incredibly big, bright moon -- and the reflection off the water was pretty special.
The drive up to Cheshire was lovely and sunny, and the satnav took me a way I wasn't expecting up through the Derbyshire Dales. The boat test was carried out in nice winter sunshine and with hardly a breath of wind. The photos should be good, as the Macclesfield Canal looked very pretty.
I'd expected to have to dash home to go to an event tonight, but I had an email to say it had been postponed. So I rang my sister to see if the family was at home. They were just about to go and watch Rachel in her nativity play (she was playing a sheep, hence the black nose), so I met them at their home after that. We took the dogs for a walk in the fading light, and I had a good couple of hours playing with the girls and reading stories.
It's been a very enjoyable day -- and not at all what was planned. A four hour drive and I'm now back home.
