We had breakfast, and as we did so heard a boat breaking the ice on the cut past the marina. Then I had a text to say my mother was in hospital again. So at around 10.30 I set off for Kent. Fortunately the traffic wasn't bad at all, in either direction.
Back at the marina at about 6pm, I noticed that Jubilee seemed to be occupied. So in the evening an exchange of texts resulted in John and Jan coming round for a drink, and a very welcome catch up -- particularly since we haven't seen them since they came back from their ten week retirement cruise.
It's another cold night tonight with a hard frost. We'll have a look at the ice tomorrow and decide whether to attempt to get out.
