The waiting up going queue are all sat on their boats watching ..... grrrr!!!!
Both lock keepers came to find me to say thank you for my help but, really, it shouldn't have been 'thank worthy' it should have just been done .... grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr... We've only lived on the waterways for 5 and a bit years but, already, the decline in courtesy and manners is horrible (vive le France - they may be just as ill-mannered but I won't understand a word so I won't bloody care!)
Operation of this system involves turning on a switch in the bedroom; 2 switches away from my bedside light switch. The hole in the bottom will not be drilled until we are in dry dock for blacking next week .....

found some left over batter in the fridge from last Sunday lunch so had
collapsed Yorkshires drop scones with strawberries, sweetened cream and chocolate sauce .... yum
