It's broke, just as well its fine.

Still moored at Stowehill bridge no 26 at Weedon

When we arose this morning we found that the Mikuni central heating unit had not fired up on schedule as the radiators were cold. We had some trouble with it yesterday but I managed to coax it into life. This time it didn't want to play ball. I checked out everything and found that the fault is in the heating unit, probably the glow plug spat the dummy. I called over to Stowehill Marine but they don't have a resident engineer but they did put me on to Leisure Boat Services.

I gave the guys a ring but they were on the train to the London boat show, wouldn't you just know it. However we discussed the problem and they promised to come and have a look at it tomorrow.  Would be a cold night forecast wouldnt it, never mind we have a nice warm bed if we need to retire early to keep warm.

The bathroom repairs and varnishing are progressing well, a bit slower than I had hoped but it is all falling into place quite nicely.

This afternoon to make the most of a sunny day we walked into Weedon along the road as the towpaths are very muddy due to the heavy rain.  Nice respite today but more wet weather is in the wind apparently.
