It was a birthday present a few years ago from my oldest friend... it even came with a few notes bobbling around inside...the same friend who has very kindly insisted on buying us our "proper" toilet - as a "boat warming present" costing in the region of £800... http://www.leesan.com/index.asp?m=3&cat1=4&cat2=22&p=143&t=All+Toilets+for+Electric+Macerator+Toilets+Standard+Height accepting it however is troubling our conscience as it's such a lot of money.... I'd have to wash a lot of pots to earn that! - I make that reference as it's how we became friends, some 25 years ago when I began working in her fathers pub as a pot washer. There's been a lot of water under the bridge (no intentional boating pun here) since then but we spent a very pleasant evening together in York on Sunday - and (life's responsibility's a side) it felt like we were still young for a lovely few hours.
Speaking (well writing) of 'friends' - another special one has insisted on paying for 1 of the side doors to be glazed for us as present... again we're troubled at accepting another 500 quid gift but DO appreciate the sentiment behind it and hopefully, they'll look something like this.
ANYWAY - back to the pot... on Saturday I picked it up to clean ( Andy's parents were on route so we did a quick flick around) and decided it was heavy enough to break open.
Excuse the gammy thumb nail - the result of me walloping it with a different hammer a few weeks ago at work.
On counting it up, we came to the grand total of £1195
