Never Put Off Till Tomorrow

You know I’d said there was loads to do yesterday and I couldn’t be bothered, well it meant there was even more to do today. So after we’d been shopping which was the last thing on the list.
I think we broke the world record as to how fast you can put things away in their rightful place without tripping over each other or causing serious harm to supplies, so we could set off out. Remember the old saying that all mum’s used to say?
“Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today”
Anyway we FINALLY embarked about 3pm and moored up in the best spot we’ve ever found round here yet, sheltered by some trees. For the first time in ages we sat out the back without putting the luxury conservatory up – it was just too HOT.
There’s only been one boat gone past while we’ve been here and two different people have asked for the number of the company that built said conservatory. It wasn’t even up at the time (won’t go under bridges) but they know the boat – everyone knows this boat. She might have notoriety, even fame?
Unfortunately the “fortune” word that goes with the “fame” word works the opposite way round for us in financial terms but she’s worth it (sometimes).
Well on a different note, I’ve noticed people sometimes put details on their blog of a superb boat they know of that’s for sale, so not to be left behind I found one today:
Something else eh…?

And the crumpled sepia coloured paper in the window there says “FOR SALE” there’s contact details underneath which I can pass on to you if you’re interested…

Looking back down the Rufford canal in all its glory from where we’re parked up, no traffic jams round here…
