We are both finding it so hard to get back into the swing of day to day life. A mixture of feeling pretty yuk and not being able to go out much means that all routines are completely out of the window. So what do you do when you just cannot get out of 'holiday mode' ... why you book another holiday of course 😀😄
We have just had ten days in the Spanish sunshine, we have a five day Warner Leisure Hotel holiday booked for September, so what could I choose that is completely different to fill a gap in the middle?
I'm sure you can guess by the photo at the top of this post that I chose a narrow boat holiday, and one that is extremely close to home. There is definite method to my madness as Alan is currently still debating about whether he wants to buy a narrow boat to renovate as a bit of a hobby and it seemed a good idea to 'try before we buy' and combining this with a luxury no-lock, cruising the cut, mini holiday seemed an even better idea.
We had to go for one of the larger of the four boats on offer by the Duck Island Boat Company which is a small company close to home in the local marina, as they are the only ones that you can take your four legged friends onboard with you ... but this should be no hardship at all. With the potential for a bedroom and a bathroom each we can spread out to our hearts content in the 56ft long boat. Of course booking so last minute meant that we had to take the dates that were available, which luckily fell just right for us. It's going to be a total luxury sort of narrowboat holiday, something that we really do need to keep in mind if Alan is buying an old boat to do up. I doubt his will have proper flushing toilets and two en-suites!!
So we have something exciting to look forward to in July ... now what on earth can we do in June?
