Important to get the right place if it's on fire JF :default_norty:

I get the feeling you wouldn't be too concerned if it was left to burn Mr Nog sir :default_biggrin:

Hah! Absolutely not! But I suspect for the less discerning lager drinker, they'll serve Stella or Cronenbourg....

Ooh err, I play one more game of Labyrinth with the kids and the next thing I know, Grace storms in and starts slamming doors around and telling me off :default_icon_luvlove:

Thank you so much Mr Nog :default_icon_bowdown:

I'll continue the enthralling which pub game if you wish Mr Nog, I just thought you'd had enough of it. Happy to be wrong sir.

Sunday 28th October

A complete and utter lazy day today.

I got up at 0730 to a sunny cool morning, 20181028_075508.thumb.jpg.3ed4cf2381fce44d05763be4ae230b12.jpgand took the dog out for her morning duties. 20181028_075818.thumb.jpg.7d0b4c3943015796f403238067e27491.jpg20181028_080820.thumb.jpg.868ce0dab53db7cf220df516c1b20513.jpgI sat talking to the kids about nonsense for most of the morning afterwards and just enjoying relaxing on the broads with no work to have to worry about whilst sinking numerous cups of coffee.

The rain kept coming and going through the morning and eventually I knew I really should head off somewhere else. The heater on the boat has decided to stop playing ball recently and so as the kids had started moaning about the temperature I needed to go and get an alternative heating source.

It was around 1115 when I eventually set off once more, unheard of setting off so late usually for me, but I know I'll make up for it later in the week, I knew we was going to take it easy whilst the kids are with me, when I am alone later In the holiday I know I'll be travelling much more.20181028_104432.thumb.jpg.5ca342d5fec9f365b272e363248c9c22.jpg

Heading down the River Waveney Somerleyton bridge was held open, which was fortunate as there was only around 8 foot showing, which is exactly what we would need if it was closed, saving me wondering if we would definitely pass through or not.20181028_112204.thumb.jpg.eed913c0cd45853647d11819da589ade.jpg

I took my time along the river with no rush to do anything today, maybe a delayed response to finishing nights yesterday morning. 20181028_113019.thumb.jpg.22153eec285f53d975022597292815f2.jpg20181028_113442.thumb.jpg.27dc557ed8312e3bda7089a98ccc1481.jpg20181028_115649.thumb.jpg.a21d404618a499ad0c8df0831eed8efd.jpgThere was yet another downpour or two including another bout of hail after I passed the Waveney centre.20181028_121027.thumb.jpg.71fa553da163a1abf732161f86a33635.jpg20181028_122621.thumb.jpg.7052b930c1b11e52eb44edebcd0177cb.jpg20181028_123519.thumb.jpg.9b48a20ed53a514dcc35146103ff59a4.jpg20181028_132328.thumb.jpg.7e7f428bd0d6e57ad00537aea23e79b2.jpg

Eventually I reached Beccles Yacht Station which was almost empty making mooring up even easier.20181028_135141.thumb.jpg.c50fbf34feae519aa6d818acca3c49a3.jpg

Paying my fee we then headed up into town,  and whilst everyone else went shopping for heaters and the usual unnecessary rubbish (including a marshmallow firing gun :default_rolleyes:) I took the dog and sat in the pub for a pint. Or two. Well actually...20181028_161457.thumb.jpg.663821f8c5b41a7b9215273eb79a606f.jpg

Once everyone was finished it was time to head back to the boat where we put a few Halloween decorations up inside and out, (if you after on the water this week and see a bunting covered boat, yep thats probably us) which was fun, before settling down for another evening playing games with the kids.

Apparently I should let them win at least one game, I was urged to do it, just one game she said.

I didn't :default_smiley-angelic002:

Like I said, a very lazy Sunday, but back to normal tomorrow I would think.

Well struggling with the second one too JF I'm ashamed to say. I'll go for the Kings Head without much conviction. 

BTW is the third pic another one or a wind up for Mrs Nog? :default_biggrin:

Firstly sir I am delighted to have challenged you.

Which kings head do you mean, it isn't the kings head regardless. Are you giving in?

The third pic was a wind up, I know how unlike me, but I do have another for you.

Nope sorry sir. Maybe I've made this too hard. You sure you haven't consulted Mrs Nog :default_biggrin:

Once again, nope.

The third one may be a little unfair as I'm not sure youd have been here (That's a tiny clue though)
