I have set this blog up to record my time in Stoke Bruerne. I bought 2 Canalside Cottages on 26-April-13 and moved in (after some renovation) on 28-June-13. I hope to record the times and events of living to Stoke Bruerne (and I hope I can contribute to the village during my time).
I have a narrowboat (see Leo No2 blog) which I will moor at Blisworth but would like to try and moor in Stoke Bruerne if possible.

Moving Leo No2 back to Stoke Bruerne (Day 2)
Autumn is coming
I was up early and off by 07:35 knowing I would have to work Cookham lock myself but what I didn't bargain on was that the last boat through had left the upper gates open, the sluices up and of course the lock full. Never mind I had a volunteer operate Sonning for me during his lunch hour so what you gain on the swings you loose on the roundabouts!
I was a funny day weather wise. Jacket on, then off, then on, then off and I eventually lost count of the number of times I put it on and took it off. It was a lovely still day but I find myself quite tired so called it a day at about 17:00 at Pangbourne. I still feel as if I am way ahead of my orginal planned (GU) schedule.
