    I can't imagine stew being dispensed from it... The creature in the photo is clearly half human, half hamster. ๐Ÿ˜„ It has to rank alongside a wet wipe warmer as the most unnecessary baby accessory ever.

    This. What more could you want? Sprog can now be safely ignored. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
  3. I don't know if this is relevant to the discussion - Watfordโ€™s wharves Of the two nearest wharves to Watford, one Lady Capel's Wharf off the Hemsptead Road had been built because Watford was the closest point to London where coal could be unloaded from the canal without paying a 1/1d per Ton toll. This toll had originally been imposed by the Corporation of London on all coal landed from boats in the port of London to pay for the rebuilding of St. Paul's Cathedral after the great fire of 1666. The coal unloaded at Lady Capel's Wharf continued its journey by cart and wagon but the commercial use of Lady Capel's Wharf ended in 1847 when the original lease granted by the Earl of Clarendon expired. From this site https://www.westwatfordhistorygroup.org/thecanalatwatford.htm We have taken an interest in this and have "Lady Capel's Wharf" on the side of our boat...
  4. My other half had to go to Philosophy classes in the sixth form and I always treasure the report comment which in very small neat writing said "Unobtrusive".

    That's exactly what my other half has! Won't have anything to do with smartphones!
  6. It was worth it to us. The red paint was oxidised (?), had gone completely flat and was beyond help! We have a nice grey boat now.
  7. We recently paid ยฃ110 a foot, plus paint and materials, plus removing and resealing the windows, plus rent of the polytunnel. Then we paid for a signwriter. All worth it though!
  8. I thought the carnauba wax would do that but didn't seem to help. Ended up repainting - a different colour!
  9. Tried all that - Autoglym, carnauba wax... It was hard work and looked great for about three weeks before we were back where we started. Even tried baby oil! Gave up in the end.
  10. I hate to break it to you - but you can't just jump off the train next to the marina! It's a long drop and in any case, that sort of thing is frowned upon. You have a 15 minute walk from either Watford or Croxley stations... ๐Ÿ˜€ https://goo.gl/maps/YxMfLJKEjAK2
  11. Of course it's a snicket! Although my other half calls it a twitten...
  12. Not a Renault 12. We had several so am familiar! There is still the ancient crumbling wreck of a Renault 12 estate in my driveway. ๐Ÿ˜’
  13. Your nearest household waste recycling centres are in either Rickmansworth or Garston in North Watford. As far as I know there are no checks on whether you are a resident or not. However, if you hire a van you will have to apply for a van permit which is quick and online but you do have to supply a home address. The recycling centre in Rickmansworth is very close to the canal so you could maybe move a little closer to it and use your car?
