I’ve been spending too much of my time with my head up Mr Pension’s backside. Last summer, after spending a lot of money doing Lady Lucy up, I decided it was time to invite people on the boat who weren’t related to Mr Pension and who were coming because they don’t get Mr Pension’s munificence (conferences, hospitality, high-salaries etc.)
I put the outing schedule on Eventbrite and a whole load of people have been on the boat who I didn’t know but want to know in future.
Here are some new friends after we’d been eating electric-blue lollies at Hambledon lock!
Here are some new friends having fun at the back of the boat
Here’s us going through Marsh Lock on the way to Sonning
It rained a bit in the morning and many of the roads in Berkshire were flooded, just as well we had a boat!
By the time we got to Henley it was hard to tell river from road
Some drunk responsibly
Some hid their drinking
And some just got drunk!
Everyone took their turn in the wheelhouse
to general derision
or to keep the boat moving
Thanks to Colin and his party and to all the other great people who’ve just turned up and made this summer such a blast! Lady Lucy awaits any good-meaning people who want to have real fun!
Whether you work in pensions or you don’t , Lady Lucy is a free amenity for your pleasure this summer. I think sharing is everything so I’m using social media to share my boat, if you’re reading this – you’re invited! There are plenty of spaces for the rest of the year!
The sun came out from time to time
We all mucked in but Eugenie led the partying!
