We have been in the habit of waking at 6:30 cos it is so light. On that Sunday half an hour later it was 8 o’clock and the news was on the radio! It is sunny again just like yesterday when I sat outside for a while.
It got quite exciting seeing some rain at Malaysia while those cars chased each other round the track. I wonder how excited we would get if it rained here.
BW is asking boaters to save water by sharing locks and shutting gates and paddles. “Some hope.” They won’t stop bad behavior without lock keepers being on hand to control the situation. Sadly it’ll be too late when there is no water left!
We have found that it is no good getting upset trying to ‘educate’ the holidaymakers. Seems that we will just have to think ahead about where we go this summer. Keep stocked up incase we get stuck somewhere.
Meanwhile I am staying put near Wheaton Aston while Ann is away visiting the grand children. By the way the price of diesel was 78.9p/l and my tank soaked up 146 litres.
