|A cold Saturday morning|
Spent the evenings playing cards and watching the box set of Gimme Gimme Gimme and Auf Wiedersehen Pet as we haven't picked up a cable for the tv yet
Came home this evening, but have really enjoyed our few days at Swanley.

We set off from the marina at 1pm and made our way to Lymm village where we called in to sainsburys to get a few items.
After a cup of coffee it was time to get moving again. We finally moored up just outside Stockton Heath as it was getting dark and Mark was tired. Tonight we are finishing off laying the saloon carpet.
The blog was all messed up last night for some reason. It will get sorted when we get back home on Monday.

We've decided to move to a marina before the weather turns bad, even though a few cosmetic finishes still need to be completed.

The brasses haven't been cleaned for nearly two years and needed a good work over, not quite got there yet but they are certainly looking better.
A visitor from our friends boat moored nearby, shep comes and says hello whenever we are about.

Why Dee O Ghee. Well we wanted a name that was unique and we think we may have managed that, we both love dogs but naming it after Charlie sounded like it had probably been used countless times before. Dee O Ghee came from when we used to tried to fool Charlie, If we mentioned the word dog he would jump up and either think it was time for his walk or one of his four legged friends was walking down the street, we then tried spelling it out like dee o ghee not (gee), it didn't take him long to catch on but we stuck with spelling it out. As a joke one of us said why not call the boat Dee O Ghee and that we did.
