Ep 80 Zero Waste Shopping | Day Trip to London | Silverstone
I didn’t think we have done much this week, but it turns out we had done quite a lot.
Glenn has a day out at Silverstone, which he really enjoyed. We both went to London to see the Emma Kunz exhibition at the Serpentine Gallery, we then went to Harrods where we enjoyed a look around the Food Hall and paid a visit to the Ice Cream Parlour in the store.
We went out for the evening and drunk too much and paid the price for that the morning after with a headache.
One of the highlights of the week was finding a zero waste market stall in Wolverton, Milton Keynes. The stall was exactly what I have been looking for and was really happy to visit. I also got to meet the founder of Suds, who makes Vegan, Hand made, Palm oil free Bath and shower products.
We also moved the boat to a new spot in Campbell Wharf Marina.

Welcome to A Life Full of Meaning. We sold our house and got rid of all our possessions. We currently live on a narrowboat called Nutshell and we are trying to create a more meaningful life. We love spending time with our family, including our six grandchildren.
Our video is not exclusively a ‘narrowboat channel’, it is a weekly vlog of our life, on and off board Nutshell, which we love sharing with our friends and family.

is the pipes got massive kink in it as well the tank sitting on bricks yeah and under the bricks the slats of wood that so Ron I I'm just on that corner it looks like it's been likened you know not hot but just don't understand when we was just about to sit down well I thought you know what I'm going to pull that out and see if it's leaking just wanted to say something I just want to say think

feeling slightly more human this morning so what we doing today on this gray rainy Saturday well I've got Mir today we have an action-packed day ahead no it's not I don't know why um I don't want to so really sure it's not action-packed but what I have found is that there's a farmers market going on in Wolverton today and there is a zero-waste store got a gathering of of empty containers this empty so I'm gonna get some washing liquid I want to get some white wine vinegar if they've got some I'm taking along these containers in case I see anything else a fancy and I've got the cloth bags gonna join us home we just gotta put some weights on him should we go and have a look at the farmers market first things first is gonna be washing laundry liquids okay so I'm going to wait everything yep [Applause] six friends making me feel okay yeah and then yeah yeah I'm gonna it is then the laundry take with you that's it top you to where you're stuck is he feeling it out we need some oregano or as beckii and Santa from the sites would say oregano that's into contribs so so tell us about sods is all vegan friendly it's all handmade palm oil free plastic ring is as you can see all packaged in frame with the exception of the little recycled paper band that goes around it everything's got all the ingredients on the back so in case anybody has any allergens and I'm also updating my packaging so that all new packaging will have the scientific names of all the ingredients on the back as well just because some people are given their allergens in the scientific name right which is generally their Latin the Latin name that nobody knows yeah okay no the I NCI names on the back of everything now it's all open teammate I am part of made in stonee so it's made at my office down in Stony Stratford and yeah it's just there's no nasties in everything it's all completely natural all incredibly good for you lovely yeah that's brilliant sort of about 3/4 full would be brilliant thank you yes but just sitting there quiet Oh wah wah this is it so we've got a shop in didn't we yeah so I'll show you where Yaya's boat is so to come out for a bike ride it's now pouring with rain so we're going to take some shelter under some trees that's very dramatic clouds ahead [Applause] is it good captain been a week not much not much on the narrow boat I moved it you got that video yeah I moved it yeah they would have seen you move in the boat man he was masterful even a passerby applauded it honestly you did well madam often the word fleet coming everything was was in my favor yeah no you did it very well so we may have just covered a little bit that you found a leaking on the water tank I'm a bit sad about that and I know whether it's the top pipe or whether it's the pipe at the bottom the pipe at the bottom I've seen is a is a bit of hose pipe which is falling but not ideal so I think I might do when it sentencing next time I have to get four off a bit of water pipe and you gonna have to pull all that out and I'll just replace them what hose pipe with a proper piece of what about all the leaky stuff underneath that so yeah yeah that's me I don't know what I'm saying though that might know if there I might just do that first guy might try and get some of it out you know but okay okay it's a big job I mean really and truthfully I should be taking the tank out and doing underneath it because I'm concerned that it's wet on my tank so he's that sitting on brick so it should dry but there's a lot wood to buy looks of it under there looks like it's right out I thought it was like mud buying it soggy would you anyway that's that's something oh yeah I'm gonna stop you I'm gonna stop it leaking I'm gonna do that in a minute oh no I'm not gonna get dragged around controls not the link okay okay well that is it for this week and we will see you next week for another exciting episode of an awfully meaning or a meaningful of life not a duck confuse people we will see you next week take care bye
