Tixall Wide with the Garlands

As expected, got a pump out: £15 for the marina to do it (and provide the 'blue') while I looked on and learnt.

First trip out since Margaret's operation. Went to Tixall Wide to see Roger and Mirjana and try out their melodeons. Managed to keep the travelling to the sunny periods. 2 miles; 1 hour.

Washing Machine Guarantee

Tonight I activated the 5 year parts guarantee on the Candy washing machine. Had to be done within 30 days. I took the purchase date as the delivery date on 3rd May, 2011. Engineering said it had run fine, and as yet we have not had occasion to use it. We got the documentation when we came up on 14 / 15 May.

Waste tank warning light

This evening the warning light for the waste tank came on for the first time. Hard to tell whether this is a reasonable time or not – we haven't spent that many days / nights on board.

Steve said that everything with the new owners of the marina seems to be working fine. Their financial / mooring year runs to the end of December so, if we are to stay or move to Saul, we'll extend the mooring period for 3 months and then book another year. That will give us our free lift out of the water.

Calorifier and Washing Machine fitted

Jon rang to say they had fitted the calorifier and washing machine, and done a repair to the leak on the central heating header tank. Identified a problem with the shower mixer tap, and will replace that.
