Not that far, as you’d think. Further than a lot of people move.

Seems to be a lock is enough in this neighbourhood.

Did consider following the crowd and just moving to a spot that I’d been to before. But Little Bedwyn is fine.

You’ve got to move and this is a good a place as any.

Little BedwynThis is what it looks like looking out of my window at the moment.

2 Leisure boaters went through at the same time and the pound is a little empty.

Wiley Fox Swift 2

I’ve got a new phone.

My Galaxy was feeling a little beaten up, it’s something I’ve had for 2 years or so.

It sometimes makes an annoying notification noise continuously when charging.

It doesn’t have 4G.

It has quite a small screen.

The new one got good reviews on Amazon.

wiley fox swift plus

It’s British made. Made in London. I don’t find the design of Samsung particularly stimulating, unless you have an ‘edge’, and Apple just spy on you so I’ve no interest in having one of them.

I plumped for this one because it had a faster processor than my current handset. Plus it looks fairly modern.

There was really very little packaging, just the phone, the charge-up cable and the warranty.

I’ve been playing around with it a little bit today after moving the boat.


I’ve also moved to O2.

The signal on Three was non-existent until you get to Hungerford, which I’m in no hurry to do.

I’ve got this sim with a 20GB download from O2. I’ve used 2gb today, since 10am.

It doesn’t look like the allowance is going to last long…..!

Three is unlimited.

The sales people from O2 are a real pain in the ass, ringing me up and telling me what ‘they would do’ to get a better deal.

Part of sales is listening, being aware that the punter may have a genuine objection, which I’d already put forward. This didn’t stop the sales person, who continued to tell me it was not what ‘she would do’.

I put the phone down on her.


This new SIM sure is nippy!

Look at the download speeds…..



Pretty significantly faster. Faster than 83% of UK to be exact.

Shame I won’t be using it….. on an allowance of 20Gb.

Monthly UsageI’ve done in 11Gb so far in April.

We’re half way through.

I’m going to try and fiddle with the set-ups a little, try and maximise my free bandwidth.

Otherwise, I’m quite impressed….

Had a walk around

The village.

Some kids were out playing on the green before the church.

It’s not actually possible to traverse the railway/canal in a vehicle.

I had to drive a round 4 mile journey to Gt. Bedwyn, which is a roughly 2km walk.

It’s split in two halves.

Here’s the left hand half.

Little Bedwyn – Canal
Little Bedwyn – Church St.
Little Bedwyn – Church

Came home, tried to push the boat out a little.

Didn’t work…

Trains are going by, they’re not that noisy it seems, we’ll see what happens when I go to bed.
