Look what Santa brought us!

There are some parts of UK we cannot reach comfortably by canal - Scotland, for a start.  And there are places in Europe which do not freeze up in the winter.
We hope our Murvi will help us to reach those parts Gecko cannot.

Season's Greetings to all my Readers

Thank you for visiting my humble blog over the past year.  I hope it has been enjoyable and perhaps a little entertaining and educational.
Have a good Christmas and see you in the New Year.

60% Price Hike at Boots

Around this time each year I take my USB stick of interesting photos to Boots and get some printed. I do this once a year because if I print 200 pictures they cost 5p each which I reckon isn't bad.  Well this year the price has been increased to 8p which is somewhat above the rate of inflation.
How can this be justified?
Having found several items in Boots are 10% more expensive than in Waitrose the loyalty card does not seem quite such an advantage now.
