A good week out

We got back to Cropredy on Friday and the weather has been good for us during our trip.  As we all know it was a very windy weekend.  We moved into the marina on Saturday before it got too difficult and topped up the diesel tank with 80 litres for £62.  That was 'zero rated' during the winter but next month it goes up to 60/40!

It was a bit of a challenge with the wind in the exposed marina but we used it to advantage to get next to our pontoon.  It is no good fighting against that wind!  Once tied up the aerial was set up and chimney extended.  Then it rained so we had timed our arrival well.

We got some 'Blue' for our Elsan in its taller container.  To avoid the Chinese copies.  They have a lot to answer for because the bottle does not fit under the shelf!

Tip of the week:-  Grease your cratch cover zips with Vaseline, it makes them so much easier.

Add to your tip rub vaseline into the stitching to stop it rotting. :)
