Today we have finally managed to get the replacement alternator and I’m hoping that problem will now be solved (fingers crossed) but a further problem has now arisen, whilst we were waiting for the replacement alternator, both the River Kennet and the River Thames have gone into flood. Worse than that is the River Kennet is now closed to navigation from here in Newbury all the way through to County Lock in Reading, so we are going nowhere anytime soon!
And of course the final problem is that a boat has got stuck at County Lock itself due to the river flow. Think I’ll just stay where we are and pray for no further rain!
