Lyra moves again

Stop Press!
We've managed to unplug and take a few days cruising.
The last couple of days have been interesting. Damon has added me to his car insurance and we've been able to borrow the car while he is at work. The first day (Wednesday) we drove out and did a bit of window shopping around the furniture establishments. We can't actually order anything until we get access to the new house to see where things will go. It was a bit of a shock to learn that lead times were 6 to 12 weeks on a lot of the stuff.
Thursday we drove out to Harlow Carr gardens for a look around. Cath has become quite keen on the idea of growing things at the new house. She's already mapped out a few things she wants me to make, like raised beds for the veg. All very well, but filling them with earth could be a problem. Keep shoveling!
This morning we pulled the plug and chugged off as far as Castleford. Our intention is to go to Goole and visit the Waterways Museum there.
The weather has been superb, and I've caught a touch of sun. The forecast is for more of the same tomorrow. I can take any amount of this.
We did have one first today. As we approached Nostrop Fall Lock the amber light changed to red, then green as the gates opened. We have never seen a lockie here in the 4 years we've been around the area. Always room for something new.
