We also went to what may be the last ever Braunston Boat Show, and enjoyed the many narrowboats and displays.
Decorating and Painting
We have decorated the office. This is the room where we spend most of our time. We've been here 10 years, and this was the last room to be decorated. We used our Easter break and it was very tiring. It took a whole day just to empty the room!
