Welcome to my site I hope you enjoy it and will keep on visiting. I am a blog virgin so hopefully I will get the hang of this modern thing. I live in Abingdon on a 57ft narrowboat which I have owned for the last 6 years. It's a great way of life as you live and breathe the countryside and are affected by the seasons. I work the Environment Agency so I am heavily involved in protecting our natural environment, I am based on the River Thames where I work to ensure that it is available for all to use and enjoy.
