When we got to the marina we were joined by one of Michael and Lorraine's son's Matthew and his girlfriend Valentina and their friend Nicola who is a singer. They were on their way down to London to perform on tonight's X-Factor. Matt and Valentina are both very good dancers and in January they are off performing on a world cruise ......Lucky them.
We had a chat and a cup off tea and before long it was time to say good-bye. Thank you very very much for dropping us back we really appreciate you doing it.
We leave the marina first thing on Monday morning . They give the weather getting very cold so tomorrow we will head down the Watford flight of locks and head for Norton junction. It should take us about 3 hours. Then see what the weather is like for the rest of the week before deciding what to do next.
