(Warning: no pretty sewing/baking/flowery tales
to tell you in this post but something I have to share as
although it's a bit 'laddish' I've enjoyed it too)
Now there's feelings of sadness rising in this house
for our fantastic programme is nearing the end of
it's series tomorrow (Weds) evening.
'The Boat That Guy Built'
I've decided that it's sort of like a
'Kirstie's Homemade Home'
but for boys!
(...and their Mums)
For those of you who haven't seen any of this
programme it's about this chap called Guy.
Guy's a bit of a hero in the eyes of my lads
as not only does he get to have a go at lots of
engineering type bits and bobs each week,
but he rides in fast motorbike races and fixes huge big waggons
as his day job. PLUS, he has the best sideburns since Elvis
and an infectious giggle! His best mate Mave is his sidekick,
and they drink tea by the gallon.
Aside from all of that the series has been
following them and their narrowboat
around British canals whilst they've been
renovating, her bit by bit.
Last weeks episode saw them in my hometown of
Macclesfield on my very own canal which some of you know,
from previous posts,
runs only a stones throw from my little house.
Tomorrow evening (Wednesday-7.30) shall see the last in the series.
We'll be sad for it to end and
not have our weekly installment of
engineering boys toys.
But we can't wait to see Reckless in all her
We'll certainly be keeping an eye open for her on
the canal whilst out on our walks with Basil,
especially as the evenings are getting lighter.
Thinking of which...
I'm sure it's almost time for
Another favourite in this house.
