I had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. I finally found romance with a friend who I have known for most of the time I have lived on my boat as we are neighbours. So, our Christmas and New Year were very special. As we live next door to a pub/restaurant we spent most of the holidays there having our Chrismas lunch and at a New Years Eve party - which just happened to be my birthday too.
I've been doing a lot of walking around the area. Last weekend spent three hours in Wicken Fen…Continue

He gets his name due to the fact that he carries a clipboard around with him, making notes on all things that disagree with him (there are many). His main gripe is how much electricity he is using and he…Continue
I can't believe that I have been away from Friends of Amida for so long! Basically the main reason is that I changed my job and as I don't have internet access at home I tend to rely on it at work but my new employers had blocked "social networking". However, I seem to now be able to "social network" again. I believe this could be a mistake on the part of our IT team but I'm not telling them!
I am working on getting internet at home but as I live on a boat in the middle of…Continue
