They were alright, a little bit dry and took a bit of coaxing off the oven tray but tasted fine, which is a good job as I'd stocked up on them; my local Farmfoods has packs of 18 Meatless Farm sausages in their 3 for £5 veggie offering at the moment.

I know we have an expert on just about everything here, so I'm summoning resident boatlad - I want to buy a boat, just a little cabin cruiser for general...boatsmanship. Taking women up the river or fishing or whatever.

How daft am I?

Extremely daft. If it flies, floats or fucks, it is cheaper to rent.

Unless you happen to live directly next to a river or canal, you won't use it enough to justify the expense of buying one. I have owned a few boats in the past, and agree with the idea that the two best days of owning a boat are the day you buy/get it, and the day it is gone. Almost everything in between costs hellish amounts of money, particularly when you divide it by the number of times you get to use it. Sorry.

I do live close enough to the river to use it frequently, and I would be capable of doing any mechanical or electrical maintenance myself, but I hear you on the rest of it. I suppose I expected your response, I only wish I was sensible enough to allow it to completely dissuade me - though you've certainly helped.

Any woman you can impress with a boat, will have a boat. And want rid of it.
A trailer and decent towcar, that's how to impress. Or being prepared to sped a few weekends scraping and anti-fouling her hull. iykwim.

I don't see how that works out. I know plenty of women who think someone who owns a boat is 50 rungs above them socially, or at the very least, proper dead fancy like.

The appeal of a boat for me would mostly be the solitude. Flying's a bit like that too, but having a spliff on the deck is much more frowned upon with the latter.

Look, you're going to buy it anyway and it will be an enormous amount of fun, for a few days. Despite my previous ownership and experience of them, should I have enough money during retirement, I will doubtless do the same again too. But it will be daft.

Wouldn't they disappointed by your smelly little boat when they see it, having been imagining some oligarch's floating mansion off the telly?
I probably hang around with women who've been brought up around yacht clubs. (And anyone who thinks a yacht club sounds posh and is anything other than a squalid, smelly bunch of sailing obsessives hasn't been to the ones I grew up around).

Solitude is fine, though. Spliffs on a boat at dawn can be doubly so. Pissing off the deck into a misty lake, triply. I should probably buy a boat, it's been a while.

Even the women I hang around with aren't stupid enough to confuse the boat I'd have moored off of Tynemouth with a 300foot megayacht. Plus it's 2020, I can show them a picture of it. If they are somehow put off by it then so be it, I have not wasted any diesel.

There's no fish pie recipes that aren't filled with cream or milk. I don't have an issue with either ingredient, but I'm a little WITH NOTHING TO SAY BECAUSE I AM A CUNT. Why no fish pies? What's going on? Am I going to have to invent the non-milk fish pie? Then so be it.

This is sort of like asking why every steak pie has some sort of gravy in it - it's because it's a really good way to make it. You need a liquid to bake with your meat, otherwise you'll just end up with a very dry, possibly burned filling, and that liquid has to me more sauce like in texture than watery, or you just end up with a soggy or disintegrated crust.

A tomato based sauce might work, maybe a thickened bouillabaisse or bisque, but it'd have to be pretty thickened, and I reckon they'd be too intense in flavour and overpower the crust and fish experience anyway - you'd likely have to use mash instead of pie crust and I don't really count that as a pie.

My housemate had a go at me earlier in the month calling me Billy no-mates because I've not had friends over to breach lockdown and presumably she's been in arrested development since she was a teenager. I mostly put it aside. I know I have friends, they're just spread out around the planet and I'm not insecure enough to need to spend every evening with someone. It does sound a bit like "my girlfriend goes to another school, you wouldn't know her" though. Then this morning I got a parcel with gifts and a really thoughtful letter from a friend on another continent who i haven't seen in a couple of years. It's one thing to "know" something but another to get such a concrete reminder.

One of my female friends used to be roommates with a lass who was five years younger, about in her early 20s, in any case in the middle of a post-adolescent boy-crazy phase. The back story was that she was living in a buy to let flat that was owned by her somewhat well to do dad, and my friend moved in as a lodger because the lass's dad still wanted to be paid an adequate rent, which his daughter couldn't afford on her own.

Anyway, my friend eventually moved out again after about ten months because of all the drama of reluctantly having to play big sister, and agony aunt when the lass was once again in between boyfriends. And all the mid-week partying that you just don't feel like doing anymore by the time you're 27.

British Gas were here to fix my boiler on Friday, and I am just now beginning to feel the difference that that makes. I had to make do with a space heater for ten days because there wasn't sufficient heat going from the boiler to the radiators, they told me something about a bunged up hydraulic switch which they had to replace. It wasn't completely cold, but even with all other radiators shut off, the system was struggling to keep the livingroom temperature at 18 to 20 °C.

British Gas need a bit longer to respond at the moment, at least with anything that isn't an immediate emergency. People spend more time at home and more boilers seem to break down because of that, they told me.

Zone valve? They usually have a manual override to force them open if the motor's buggered. Although I'm not sure that applies to bunged up ones. Maybe if the bung is too strong for the motor.

No, the hydraulic switch, which apparently switches heating power between your heating circuits and your warm water as needed.

Never heard of a hydraulic switch before this weekend, but symptoms are a reduced flow of heat to the radiators as well as a noticeable increase in temperature of the warm water coming out of your taps. I nearly scalded myself a few times on the kitchen tap that's right next to the boiler.

Bin grease could in theory solidify above zero, or perhaps the bin itself had air pressure difference between the inside and out, causing the lid to be sealed closed, like wot happens with a fridge door sometimes.
