We have filled up again with diesel and bought another 6 bags of coal . A coal boat was passing so we thought we just as well take advantage of him as we haven't seen another coal boat for such a long time. The idea is to support the coal boats as much as we can as they run all year round and will even get to you when the canal is frozen. We took on 93 litres of diesel at 91pence per litre. We last filled up a month ago on the Coventry canal. We are experimenting with coal and have got on well using Taybrite ovals .We have now bought some Supertherm ovals as we see lots of other boats with that on board , and it's a pound a bag cheaper.

Luckily we always put a pin in for the centre rope as a back up if either the front or rear pins are pulled out.
The weather is so overcast that we are not getting much out of the solar panels. So we are having to run the engine to generate electricity. It really breaks my heart to have to run it after all that free electric we have had during the summer. Still it wont be long before summer is here again.( There my glass can be half full )
