Work and reality just seemed so far away and I went to work yesterday feeling I had not been there for ages, which is always a great feeling. I would definitely like to do this again and was wondering about my birthday. The problem is that I am a winter baby so it might not be the same.
I actually had a go at steering at one (brief) point. I started off okay, but then I got overconfident and panicked, and had to leave it to the experts. I came home and bragged about these two minutes for some time. Daniel, Caroline's son, did a much better job steering on the way back and I was mightily impressed by how well he could hoot that horn.
It was a great way of combining two hobbies, canals and knitting. How civilised.
