2011 in review

2011 was a big year for us, with our cruise to London in the summer, and starting courses in the Autumn. I also started to focus a bit more on some of my non-boaty interests like cooking and charity shops. Although academic work has meant that I have less time for that now, I plan to keep it up if possible. Here's a quick month by month look back at the year.

January: Found out that James had a place to train to be a teacher, and the river flooded.

February: The weather continued to be dreadful and we narrowly missed being hit by a falling tree!

March: A trip down the backs, and a very successful Cam Clean-Up.

April: Bought a new fridge and spent a wonderful weekend at the HNBOC Ellesmere Port Easter Gathering.

May: Had a brilliant time competing in the BCN Marathon Challenge with the YWBS in the big Northwich Yeoford: Parts 1, 2 and 3


June: I singlehanded the Duck for the first time and we went to Braunston where James steered Ling in the Parade.

July: We competed in the Town Bumps and then set off on our big cruise to London.

August: Made it to London, and out again before the riots, then back to the Fens to leave the boat to be blacked. We also remodelled our bedroom.

September: We both started our courses, me in London and James in Cambridge. We helped organise the World Rivers Day Festival.

October: Academic work takes over, but I found time to do some baking!

November: We celebrated the 5th November by mooring four abreast across the river to watch the fireworks.

December: Not much blogging, but we did have fun at the YWBS Christmas gathering, and with our families.
