Check out the buzzard stand and report back, please. I am concerned that we are  potentially allowing migrant buzzards in to feast on our young British songbirds.

Thats a bit sh!t Charlie. Can't you teach her to control the boat, so that you can work the locks?

Or moor up over the weekends, when the waterways will be crowded, and traverse the locks during the week when there's less pressure to get through with other boats behind?

No, her hands hurt too much to use the tiller or ropes. She has an emergency appointment with a doc this afternoon, so we will decide what to do after that.

Mrs charlie is annoying me. I have taken five weeks off so we can cruise to some interesting places on our canal boat. It’s only day five and she has bad pain in her hands, which is probably connected to neck surgery she underwent about 15 years ago. Anyway, she’s not going to be much use on locks. Just waiting in Alrewas at the moment while we decide whether to push on in a day or two, or give up, stick the boat in a marina and head home.

Although I don't understand why a woman would want a bigger arse in the first place (all the females in my family are constantly trying everything they know to get smaller arses), it's clearly madness to agree to having glass filler injected into your buttocks.

I can let you have a few trout, if that helps. They're dead but would look realistic if you weighted them down and had them sort of peeping out from a bit of weed.

Enough of your weird sci-fi sh!t. I've enjoyed the Paul Whitehouse / Bob Mortimer series on the BBC. It'll only appeal to a niche audience made up of 55+ year old blokes who are falling apart a bit physically, find the presenters mildly amusing and like a bit of fishing - but it's perfect for me.
