It annoys me more and more each year... I wish it didn't but it creeps under your skin - CAUSED by... the Media and shops. I've never been good at being TOLD what to do... preferring to plow my own furrow so to speak and have always maintained the mantra of 'just because I'm the minority, doesn't mean I'm wrong - and also, I'd rather be walking the right direction on my own than heading over a cliff with the crowd'... That's probably a paraphrase from somewhere but you get my drift.
Anyway - if it matters to you and you're reading this we wish you well - but no MORE well than we would if we bumped into you in need on say the 11th March!
Right - Xmas moan out of the way, an update on the batteries.
Sods law has dictated that having gone to the boat yard before they closed for the holiday and bought 4 new batteries 'just in case', SINCE then, the present ones have behaved perfectly well - I half expected that to be the case but given we've guests arriving tomorrow for a Boxing day, Christmas dinner, it was a gamble we couldn't really take. SO - for as long as required, they'll have to live at the bottom of the bed - occasionally being moved from one side to the other to adjust the ballast as the black-water tank level varies.
