  1. I might have a wander down to Iron Bridge Lock on Tuesdayish although the chances of catching it are a bit remote.
  2. Thetford toilet paper @£1 a roll!! 😮 Morrisons Savers toilet paper @ £1 for 6 rolls 😊 No contest...
  3. They're probably attracted to shiny surfaces as they look like water - but of course they're not - they are sticky paint! Every year I get mayflies swarming over my car for the same reason but of course they can leave again when they want.
  4. Perhaps someone was trying to get a widebeam through...? 😉
  5. I remember one of my brothers test-driving a Maxi once. He drove it up the hill from the garage and then couldn't engage any gear but reverse. So he reversed it all the way back to the garage and said "No thanks"...
  6. We too decided we would like our boat to see where it was going...
  7. I wish I'd taken a photograph at the time but earlier this year at Paddington Station I saw a sign informing travellers that there were no toilets on the Heathrow Express and apologising for the inconvenience... I laughed anyway.
  8. Some years ago when we were looking at new boats we had a look at a boat in the Hanbury range but had to reject it because we couldn't see over the top. The oven was at eye level and the microwave was above head height! Not sure if they're made any more.
  9. Good grief! I haven't seen that since I was at school! Anyone who was a stamp collector in their youth would recognise Helvetia and know exactly what it meant! Not how to pronounce it though - how many schoolboys thought Sweden was Sveridge to the natives?
  10. We moored at Blisworth for three years. We found it a very pleasant marina, friendly and with good facilities but tight for mooring if you're moored opposite a full length boat and very noisy being in an angle between the West Coast mainline and the A43. As we were moored on the south-east side, we also found carting everything over the footbridge a bit trying.
  11. Nono - a glass without a handle is a thin glass
  12. I bought a lottery ticket the first week they came out. I didn't win so I've never bought another one.
  13. Nono. Barnsley is still safely in the North but anything south of it is open to question. Perhaps everything between Watford (Herts) and Barnsley is The Midlands?
  14. Coming from neither North nor South of Watford, the Watford Gap thing always irks me. Sorry to nitpick...
  15. Agreed! I don't know where the 'Watford Gap' thing came from. It makes no sense as any kind of joke but the road sign at the start of the M1 in London does. The M1 goes to Watford and everything else is The North!
