We are moored no more than two miles from Hinckley but there is no broadband signal to speak of so I have abandoned the photo upload for tonight.
We moved up this morning and watered the boat at Limekiln Bridge, immediately south of Hinckley, got a couple of wash loads on the go and continued north towards Stoke Golding where there was reputedly somewhere to get shot of rubbish. We moored just short of Stoke Golding on a decent stretch of Armco and post lunch we walked along the towpath to find this rubbish depository and have a look around the village. The village shop at Stoke Golding is no more having closed a few months ago so tomorrow's crossword fix is in jeopardy unless I can find somewhere else to get a Times... Choices are either cycle to Higham-on-the Hill - the hill bit is a worry though, or back into Hinckley where there is a Morrison's this side of town apparently.
We got some good news today, we had confirmed that we have a winter mooring at Union Basin in Market Harborough. This the first time we have taken a winter mooring so we will see how we like it. Market Harborough is a lovely little town with plenty of independent shops, pubs and restaurants and a train station so getting out an about will be fine.
So that is about it for tonight, off to prepare a 'skinny day' dinner (fast day today) in a moment and surprise, surprise it will be mushroom based...again. I ordered four field mushrooms from Tesco on Monday and when the order arrived I had actually ordered four packs of four mushrooms! Idiot.
So Joe and I are working our way through our fungi feast meal by meal by meal; tonight it is mushroom stroganoff.
