I want it

Awks Mon 24-Feb-14 20:46:51

So do I. Imagine the parties.

VivaLeBeaver Mon 24-Feb-14 20:48:35

There's a river in our village. I could moor it there and have gin fuelled flapper parties on the roof.

No mooring though - that's the expensive bit...

Remedial work is required to the hull and you have to provide your own mooring. Both could be expensive.

It the Balliol college (Oxford) barge. My college (Corpus Christi) also had one. A student lived on it and had to maintain it as part of his rent.

Wow. How fab is that

VivaLeBeaver Mon 24-Feb-14 20:59:06

One of my friends has mooring rights outside her house and no boat.....I could do a deal!

GemmaTeller Mon 24-Feb-14 20:59:17

Wow

Awks Mon 24-Feb-14 21:02:15

am lol'ing at the Oxford college rent barge deal. Didn't have that at Leeds Met grin)

Old boat maintenance makes old house maintenance seem almost a rational way to spend one's money. It is a hole in the water into which you will pour fifty pound notes.
Very, very beautiful though.

Fabulous. Another one, the old Jesus College barge, is now a restaurant -http://www.theboatatrichmondbridge.com/our-history/

Awks - we had a college tortoise as well.

You couldn't rent that but every year the undergraduates elected a tortoise keeper and they looked after it and in summer we had a tortoise fair and invited everyone in Oxford who had a tortoise to bring theirs. Many gentlemen tortoises met lady tortoises and many got lost in the shrubbery.

We also elected a Gardening Rep whose job it was to liaise with the college gardener.

I also notice one of the former students from my time is hoping to form the next Government. grin

VivaLeBeaver Mon 24-Feb-14 21:21:23

Yeah it's probably not very practical.

I've had old cars and vans which have depleted my bank account very quickly.

Dillydollydaydream Mon 24-Feb-14 21:32:58

Wow. Very cool

VivaLeBeaver Mon 24-Feb-14 21:48:11

Its been for sale since Sept and was up for 195k. Bargain now!

RandomMess Mon 24-Feb-14 21:49:34

Probably currently covered in raw sewage after the local flooding...

VivaLeBeaver Mon 24-Feb-14 21:52:00

Euugh.

LEMmingaround Mon 24-Feb-14 21:54:14

Holy shitballs that is amazing!

VivaLeBeaver Mon 24-Feb-14 21:56:22

<takes a bow>

won't mention I saw it in the daily mail first

Oh viva! Why did you confess that?! You've just lost all your MN credit.

VivaLeBeaver Mon 24-Feb-14 22:10:44

grin

I love a bit of sleb gossip. I don't read any right wing news. I just want to know what Kim Kardashian and Baby Cowell are up to. Is that so wrong?

Is that so wrong?

What are you doing woman? Do you want to be hounded out?! grin

I do the same

VivaLeBeaver Mon 24-Feb-14 22:32:17
