Bizarrely I forgot to mention in the last post that we’d had the ‘luxury’ of two whole days off, before the end of our Calendar Club season on 6th January 2019.
One of those of course was Christmas Day, and rather splendid it was too. We’d stayed in the shop after closing to get the window display ready for the annual 40% off sale from Boxing Day onwards (Calendar Club are consistent with this phase of the season), and to re-price the front display of each item in the store. Following such a long day, we relished a quiet night on board Areandare, a good nights’ sleep, and then travelled to my elder daughter’s house in Malpas to spend a wonderful day with them all. I’d collected a hire car from Lichfield Enterprise in the afternoon.
We drove back first thing Boxing Day morning ready to open by 10am …
Our New Year’s Eve was strangely subdued. We both ‘retired’ well before the stroke of midnight – the first time in living memory for me! New Year’s Day, the second day off, was a blissfully relaxed event. We spent it chilling on the boat, and walking in nearby Hopwas Woods. I captured this perfectly peaceful photo of Barry that I adore …
Inland Waterways Greeting Cards
I’m overjoyed this year that I’ve managed to cajole/persuade Barry to join me more often in contributing to this website/blog.
Already he’s got his awesome range of 47 Inspirational Images Greeting Cards uploaded, making it possible to purchase them directly from here. Go to the Home Page or the Greeting Cards page and check them out. They’re brilliant for birthdays, new home greetings, thank you’s; just about any occasion you need a card for you’re likely to find a suitable one.
If you can’t find the one you’re looking for, let us know in the comments below what you’d like to see – he may be ordering additional images in a month or two so he can take it into consideration …

Hi Sandra, good to see you posting after your busy time at work. I am not sure why, but I cannot see any of your photos? Jennie
Hi Jennie. It’s good to be back writing 🙂
I can’t work out why you can’t see the photos, all seems ok our end. Are you reading on a phone, tablet or computer?
Sorry about the delay in replying Sandra – we were away for the weekend. I am looking on my laptop. I cannot see the one on your latest post either.
Most strange Jennie. No idea why not. I’ll see if Barry can investigate. Works fine for me looking on iPhone or laptop …
That is strange indeed. I have tried my android phone and they don’t appear there either.
Hi Jennie. We’re stumped! The only thing i can think of is that WordPress changed their post editing ‘Gutenberg’ recently. Have you tried clearing your cache?
I have cleared my cache and still no joy, Sandra. When I right click on the title of the photo to open image in a new window, I get a message to say it is not secure. Hey ho – if it is just me then don’t worry, although I will miss Barry’s amazing photos. Jennie
Can you check the url you have in your browser and make sure it’s https?
Checked and yes it is, Sandra.
What a conundrum! I’ll keep investigating 🙁
A perfectly peaceful pose, indeed. 😀
