Hello, if there's anyone out who remembers me, It's canalchris here, Just when you thought you'd got rid of me, ha ha.
Thi s is a bit of an update since I was last on here, Me and Lilian and the dogs got back from our winter in Portugal last April and headed back to our canalboat home ready to clear out the majority of our possessions ready to put her up for sale, however the dealers who insisted that at 22 years old she must be just about on her last legs and about to sink, therefore be just about worthless, got me so angry that we decided to have her lifted out of the canal for sandblasting and repainting below the waterline. Lovely surprise to find that apart from a small number of shallow pittin gs to the steel, she is in remarkable condition, so much so that we have decided to keep her and sod the dealers.
Any way Portugal had the beneficial effect that we were hoping for, so much so that I am writing this post once again from the campsite at Olhao where we are again on our motorhome, this time for seven months. I had started to deteriorate in the U.K again. I am convinced it has something to do with the traffic and the amount of pollutants pumped into the air day after day. We have just managed to sell our house in England so only have to be concerned with boat and van now.
Will say Tara for now, byeeeee.
