Mmm... so yesterday it was almost too warm to sit outside & today it's back to fleeces, jackets & nearly but not quite, gloves. The delights of our English climate eh.
We didn't stay long at Jolly Miller due to some alarm going off intermittently on the small industrial estate, just long enough to pop to the local shop for a paper & fresh bread so no car boot on Sunday :-(
As it was sooo warm we decided to carry on cruising for a while to keep cool & eventually moored up on Lemonroyd visitor moorings & spent the next 2 days doing little apart from enjoying the good weather.
Yesterday we moved the short distance ( 25min cruise!) up to Woodlesford lock visitor moorings were it was again hot, we managed a stroll up into the pretty village for some supplies before lunch & then I got the washing machine going as the weather was forecasted to change. All washed, dried & put away by the time we went for our evening stroll. A bit annoying during the evening as a boat on the residential moorings opposite ran their engines till 11pm & then again this morning so we were glad to get away really.
This morning we moved up to Leeds, just a short cruise of an hour & a half to Clarence Dock & gosh it was/is cold! We need to be handy for the railway station tomorrow as I'm taking Sid back to the vets in Goole for his 2nd injection.
So we have the delights of the city to indulge ourselves in & have already been out for coffees & buns, but I'm fairly sure that by Saturday, when we are due to move on, we shall be more than ready for the peace & quiet of the countryside again.
