Well that was a holiday that went wrong!

I don't normally write a tale.

But, this is a tale of what went wrong.

We arrived on Tues 11/6 for a few days on the boat before venturing far away.

A new leak from the windows had soaked the bed area, worse it was on Jill's side, anyway turned the heating and hair dryer on and it soon dried out.

It RAINED.

Wed, Was going to head off for a couple of days.

Then I got an email to say our cruise to Iceland was cancelled, Columbus had run aground in Amsterdam and the repairs were not going to be completed for our cruise to Iceland.

We had a few trips out on Zimbi but the weather was not that good.

So we decided to have a few days in Whitby on the way home,  the weather was lousy and the apartment clean but not even a tea bag for hospitality.

Had a really excellent meal in the Marine hotel, likewise in the Magpie Café.

The Italian on the first night was unforgettably bad.

Arrived home today, turned the water back on ran the tap to get fresh water for a cuppa, water not draining away!

Tried several things but tomorrow it looks like I will have to take 3 units out to change the whole sink drain system ( it has never been good since we moved in).

The previous owners had the kitchen fitted by MFI!

To make things worse the fish tank is thick of hair algae.

The first beer I open poured flat and smelt a bit iffy.

yours,

Sick as a parrot

Yes a success.

After 3/4 hour will the drain auger I finally broke through the blockage, no need to take the units out this time.

All I need to do now is un-twist my back into a normal shape.

ps will de-fur the fish tank this afternoon and I am buying no more cheap aquatic plants.

Where do you buy cheap aquatic plants,  I must throw about £100 away when I clean my tank, don't know where they get their prices from.

Seagypsy, the plants came from a local garden centre, everything is cheap, and that's what you get cheap nasty products, never again.
