  1. Nothing much to add. The Moominbats are still going great guns. No noticeable degradation at all. They really are the dog's bollocks. MP.
  2. No Moomins, unfortunately. We were planning to drive down, but our daughter has come down with Covid, and that's messed up the plans, for complicated reasons. MP.
  3. I guess that includes the towpath in Woodseaves cutting, which is blocked by a load of fallen sandstone. The towpath for the whole length has not been used or maintained and looks like it may never be used again. MP.
  4. The auto vent won't vent excess pressure: the mechanism holds it closed when not inserted into a toilet, but doesn't positively open it when activated. That's because to can be closed by a float when the cassette is full. That lifts a rubber flap which seals the vent. If the flap is closed and positive pressure builds up in the cassette, that will hold the rubber flap in the sealed position. The yellow vent button is the best way to release any excess pressure. MP.
  5. I'm perfectly capable of inspecting my boat to determine if it's safe, so I just want the piece of paper to give to CRT; the cheaper the better. MP.
  6. I think the implication is that all are welcome, straight or any colour of the rainbow. MP.
  7. I was wondering that. You'll be forever first choice as weed-hatch wallah if so. MP.
  8. GWS Tree Monkey. BlueStringPudding please keep us informed. MP.
  9. I picked up a very second-hand but functional electric strimmer from the bin compound at Norbury Junction today. Perfect for DIY mooring creation. Judging by how the edges are growing already, everyone's going to need one, so I'm ahead of the curve. MP.
  10. It's also entirely possible I misread the sign as we passed. It wasn't very clear. MP. We couldn't remember if Turner's did gas, and we were desperate. Good to know that they do. MP.
  11. On Tuesday, Turners were 129.9 and Norbury were 128. Our main reason for stooping at Norbury was that we needed gas too. MP.
  12. The Australian one, obvs. also Grazebrook Arm.
  13. Add Pensnet Basin to the bag.
  14. Melaleuca is checking out Parkhead before the competitors arrive tomorrow.
  15. Or maybe not. Something in the lock entrance.
