We’re celebrating this weekend. One reason can be shared by many. The other two are rather special for Barry and I.
~ In the northern hemisphere it’s the shortest day (usually it’s the 21st but I’m reliably informed this year it’s the 22nd). Hoorah for the turning of the sun and the promise of lighter days ahead.
~ Today is the tenth anniversary of our ‘official’ Wainui Beach wedding in 2009.
~ Most important, and long-awaited, is official news received yesterday that Barry’s application for British Citizenship has been approved. He’s just got to book a ceremony in Chester within 21 days when he will “… take an Oath or Affirmation of allegiance to the Crown and a Pledge of loyalty to the United Kingdom.” I’m glad I don’t have to do that! Especially after the recent election debacle. I’m saying no more on that for now. Time to move forward.
One last positive was the arrival of Fuel Boat Halsall this morning. Many boaters, especially in the winter, rely on amazing boat businesses like Lee and Roberta’s to survive. We filled up with diesel, emptied our toilet tank, and topped up our coal supply. Thanks so much guys! Have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Time to open the champagne and toast our successes. Cheers everyone. Thanks for following our journeys 😉
