Something missing

GETTING out of the rat race of high London rents, Louise Burke took to living on the tidal Thames in a narrowboat writes Helen Cripps.

The Property section of the Daily Telegraph did a run-down of the costs, including the cost of such as gas, electricity, insurance, servicing and even blacking the hull, the total being just a fraction in comparison with renting a property in the city.

Convenience

Needless to say she is a happy bunny, having the convenience of being close to a tube station and thus her work without the high cost of rent.

But there was one item missing on the list of expenditure—the mooring charge for the boat, that I assume will be quite high, but would have perhaps spoilt the article.
