Carried Away By A Moonlight Shadow...

I'm starting to think we a jinxed. We had storm Ciara for the beginning our February week on MS, then high winds the middle weekend of our September break, and now they are forecasting winds of over 40mph for this weekend.

At least it should settle down for the latter part of our week.

I don't mind that much, to be honest. Just being on MS = unwind time.

Monday 26th August I didn’t wake until after 6 this morning, so that was an improvement on yesterday. There was a light mist on the river, with the sun glowing through the haze. We didn

I would like to apologise for the weather; it was me what jinxed it. In another conversation somewhere I mentioned the forecast was looking nice for Friday and Saturday. That was because we were planning to come over. I did say I may have just jinxed it and I clearly had. :default_icon_mad: Sorry.

Mind you, the last couple of times I have come over, the forecast has been completely wrong so you never know, there may be a heatwave. :default_icon_bowdown:

I pity any first timers who may be out this weekend too.

Having seen the news this morning that BoJo is considering another lockdown, we did wonder whether it was worth bothering to go to Norfolk today. Depending on what they announce on Monday, we might well have to curtail our visit. Still we are all packed up and almost ready to set off. Even a few days on MS are better than none at all.

Boris usually announces things a few days ahead so you may be lucky and get your full week, or most of it anyway.

Go for it Helen. Nothing confirmed at the moment. Most seems to come from Johnson's mouthpiece aka The Times. See what happens when you're afloat and take it from there. You might get the last couple of days with pubs too! :default_beerchug:

Please keep us posted!

Go for it! Talk to no-one. Stay offline. No radio or tv. No contact with the outside world. Keep your phones turned off. How would you even know what is announced?! If you’re in the middle of nowhere on a boat ....

Enjoy as much time as possible and I know you will just go with the flow 

The press conference has been put back to 5pm, so hopefully you will be able to get a few more days in yet

Looks like our 21st Nov trip is looking more remote now though and to be frank, I cant see a lockdown of 3 or 4 weeks making much difference as I fear we will be in and out of lockdowns until the weather improves in March 21 and then it will all start again around October next year when the cold weather starts to bite again

My son recently said his days felt like "Eat", "Drink", COVID", "Repeat" and we all laughed.............but it is sadly very true and may be for some considerable time

My plan was up next Sunday for a week,

Now looking like Monday till thursday.

I need to change the domestic battery bank, 3 x 110 A batteries as one has started to fail, they don't make batteries to last these days.

They have only lasted nearly 9 years. :default_biggrin:

Yay! We have until Wednesday at least.
Slight dispute on board. Graham wants to go to Caister-on-sea tomorrow. I’d like to cruise (depending on how strong the winds are) or at least go somewhere new.
Doesn’t really matter. Now that we know we have a few more days we are chilled.
