We were out celebrating yet another Boater's birthday last night so 'fast day' was abandoned pretty promptly I am afraid as we trooped off into Town with our fellow winter moorers to raise a glass to Ann of Nb. Jeanie Deans. Today but we picked up the baton again. We also tackled the Christmas shopping and headed off to Leicester to do the deed and two hours later we were heading back to the boat, job done. Tomorrow I will get it all wrapped and I am so proud of myself, this from someone who has shopped for Christmas on Christmas Eve before now! And, the initial food order from Tesco will be delivered to Mother tomorrow ahead of our Christmas with the Family in Essex.
