Watery Ways - Last Minute Christmas Present Idea

For anybody that is interested in living on a barge, you should read this book by Valerie Poore.  It is a fascinating insight into her first year of living on the water and about her falling in love with the way of life.  There are some lovely snippets about Rotterdam and her 'faring' adventures.  I couldn't put it down once I'd started.  I got my copy from Amazon UK.

  2. I got my copy - after waiting weeks and weeks and weeks and weeks - from Lulu!!! Not finished it yet, but won't be long. The season is just hotting up and I have work to do, and my eyelids just won't stay open for bedtime reading these days! It's me age you know!

  3. I am lucky enough to have this week off work, so I started the book last night, read until my eyelids gave way (!) and then stayed in bed this morning until 10.00am finishing it! I only got up for necessities such as tea. Amazon actually delivered the book the very next day after I ordered it.
