We'd been stuck in Birmingham for longer than we'd planned as we'd been waiting for spare parts to be delivered from Germany. Whoever said the Germans were an efficient race had never met this company. The parts should have arrived last Friday but eventually turned up on Thursday, and guess what........some of the bits were missing! Why does this ALWAYS happen to us? The missing bits were put on a next day before 12.00 delivery and we finally left Birmingham after lunch.
We're now moored at Tipton outside the Neptune Health Centre and I'm making the most of the glorious sunny weather today to catch up with the laundry. We'll head down to Wolverhampton later this afternoon and then tackle the 21 locks tomorrow.
