Tilly was allowed to come and go as she liked this morning, disappearing for lengths of time, then returning for a few treats.
Late morning we took advantage when she returned and headed out ourselves. We had some parcels to post which meant walking past a friends house, so I popped a note through his door hoping that we'll get chance to catch up. Despite thinking that I'd backed up my phone when I got a new one, I have lost quite a few phone numbers so a note through Nick's door would be better than a text.

At the Post Office we dropped off three parcels, including my latest sales from my Etsy shop. We called into Clarke's to buy Mick a pork pie for lunch and then carried on to do some shopping first at the new Lidl and then Sainsbury's. As we checked out with just a few things Sainsbury's gave us a voucher, triple points! So in the end we have won, we just need to find a suitable place to have a delivery to do a big shop in the next two weeks.
A few boats were moving today, most probably ahead of the bad weather forecast for the next few days. We certainly plan on staying put until Storm Eric has passed through.
Tilly spent much of the rest of the day up trees. There are a couple of big trees that take quite a bit of climbing, but the rest of them are quite young and easy to scamper up. Watching her makes me quite nervous. Alongside the boat she managed to climb one tree then scale it's heights, gingerly pass from tree to tree to tree, at least 20ft from the ground. The diameter of branches only just enough to take her slight weight. If we stay here too long she'll be trying to fly from branch to branch like a squirrel.

This afternoon we have confirmed a visit to Finesse our boat builders in a couple of weeks time. There are still a few winter stoppages in our way, but they should be finished by the end of next week clearing our way.
I've also made a start on my next knitting commission. With the tension square done I worked out my pattern and that I had just about enough yarn. However by the end of the evening I'd just about used up one ball of yarn, this suggests that I may well need a few more balls to obtain the right size. I'll wait till I've used a second ball before I revise my calculations.
