We all run our sewer pipes in to a big septic tank/sewerage treatment plant in the woods as we have no mains drainage. The pipe serving the houses is only about 6-7 inch diameter clay pipe......and about 60 years old.

A 12-house septic tank - wow. I'm not sure they exist in Leftpondia. I know I've never heard of one.
2014-60ish is sort of early 1950s. That sounds about right for undersized pipes and optimistic ideas about repairs.
But hooray for you for clearing it! That is noble work. I casually wonder who officially "owns" the system, anyway?
A country house of my acquaintance is on a private (and unpaved) road with a lot of others; the road is owned by one of the people on it, and that person is responsible for keeping it cleared in winter and repaired when it washes out. But at least they don't have to take care of the drains. Those are all individually owned.

I believe that householders in UK (would that be Rightpondia?) are all responsible for their own drains these days. Time was when we used to pay a compulsory tax called Water Rates to a national organisation known as, colloquially and unfortunately, The Water Board. Then someone came up with the bright idea of privatising public utilities and now every district has it's own Water Board. In case anyone was wondering, there is no colourful Harry King to take care of our water supply or disposal. My home is supplied by a French company.......never figured out that one :? Well anyway, I now still pay this company for my water supply and an insurance premium to someone else who promises to put right any problems.......and live in fear of anything going wrong with the system.

Clothing manufacturers / retailers who do not produce / sell PLEATED ladies' capri pants (or any other style of 2-legged lower body clothing) that sit above the waist, are an Abomination Unto Nuggan. I do not wish to have the exact outline of my lower torso broadcast to the entire world, nor do I wish to have my breathing and indulgence in tasty comestibles restricted by textiles! BAH!

There is a type of elastic-waisted, knitted jersey trouser known as a jogger. Fat people who wear these and insist on bending over so that the entire waistband of the garment in dragged down to mid-buttock (or lower) are an Abomination unto Nuggan.
PS I buy my work trousers, fine cotton cords which come all the way up to my waist, at a catalogue surplus outlet. I'd suggest going to 'old lady' shops for pants which protect decency, Carol! :lol: :oops:

Seeing a beautiful jacket online that looks fantastic on the model, ordering it, waiting for it with great anticipation and then when I try it on, realising it makes me look like a toffee apple......

Is an Abomination Unto Nuggan.

For a second there I saw - I believe that householders in UK are all responsible for their own brains these days.

Of course I started laughing... I'm losing my mind.
