    Yeah, my brother in law was telling me people think they can buy water butts and run their hoses off them and they can't. I think he's having to tell a lot of people on the allotments this. :D

    Poor him, he's got two plots to water. Lucky he's a big guy. I can't even use my watering can he bought me as it's too heavy. I use milk cartons to water my plants. :D

    He was going to install an outside tap for me this year, but I think he may be too busy watering

    I am a very, very happy bunny at the moment.

    I can now get REAL, DECENT draught cyder (my favourite, in fact, Stowford Press) 2 mins from my house. The Hand In Hand havejust got it in. Now that they've got Sharp's Doom Bar, and a very lovely friendly landlord (as well as the regulars who seem to be a nice bunch) I've started going there quite a bit.

    At last I've got a proper local that I really want to go to - hooray!

    Thames Water lose a massive 26% of our water through leaking pipes, so perhaps instead of fining people for looking after their gardens and farms, they should do something to fix the pipes.

    I have compost with horse manure. Horses are bigger than chickens so I reckon I can get away with using loads of hoses

    She mentioned how lovely the pub was with the exception of this tall person who fitted your description to a tee. I PMed her and told her it was and she quickly deleted the comments

    The Victorian cast iron network is steadily being replaced by blue plastic. They did our road a year or two ago. 'Twas a bloody nuisance, but still quite impressive they didn't need to dig up the whole road. So far it hasn't killed off the trees (which are only saplings here), but apparently it's a problem as the steady leakage from the old mains - that 26% of wasted water - was a significant source of water for London's street trees, helping them stay green and leafy in the droughty summers.

    BC Bikes any good? I know Brixton Cycles are the preferred U75 shop but anyone use BC for service?

    Dunno that place but went in that new bike shop in Herne Hill (Half Moon Lane) and the chap in there was very nice.
    Inner tubes cheaper than Brixton Cycles too.
  23. Badgers

    Badgers Mr Big Shrimp

    What is the shop called?

    I have bikes to get sorted and Brixton Cycles only service bikes they have sold outside office hours. Fair play, they are popular but I am not taking days off to pay someone to service a bike.

    Cheers BH and OU. Will pop in tomorrow as passing by. Can't juggle Brixton Cycles and not doing Evans or Halfords unless desperate.

    Badgers Mr Big Shrimp

    Really? It has just been idle for too long. I am shit with anything like this. Happy to pay in cider. Will chat when I see you over the weekend. Maybe you can pop round ours for a drink and an assessment?

    Lock your bike up outside Brixton Cycles and post your lock key through the letter slot in an envelope with a note telling them what you want doing. Sorted.
