Monday 24th October
Had great weekend looking after Daniel, first time we've been left along with the little tyke, you forget how much energy they have.
Damon delivered us back to the boat on Sunday night and this morning we set off intending to get to Stanley Ferry.
All went well except that when picking Cath up from a lock landing I hit the side a bit harder than I should have and unbeknown to us something in the cupboard fell down and knocked the generator switch to off. This meant the battery wasn't being charged and worse than that, we had the heater working to dry some clothes and it took so much power that it drained the main battery. We now have to run the engine for a lot longer than planned to get the power level back up.
We're at Stanley Ferry now and will probably stay here tomorrow as well.
