Lovely, sunny morning here in the far East. SWMBO has nicked the Sportage (again) "just to get used to it"! Her Polo is getting used less and less these days (10 years old and less than 50k on it!). It goes for MOT on Wednesday, so have been doing the usual checks and cleaning to keep Mr MOT happy!

Take care all.

The big guns are out! well they were til that bleddy sciatica came back again It was time to attack that Pampas grass root as it's taking over that bit of the garden, Dear me! is that hoe spade a lethal bit o kit or what!


Our daughter got a leaving present of a new "spade" shaft signed by all her colleagues but it's a pick axe handle How can somebody not know the difference between a spade handle & a pick axe handle


Must be some college humour that goes over my head Any how what a tool, I whittled the pick axe handle down to fit this 3lb hoe spade I got off the bay for 6 Quid, Dear me! It rips chucks out of that huge huge root ball effortlessly.


Next door was watching me behind the curtains hacking, slashing & cursing at this before that damn sciatica stopped play






Note to self wear gloves when pulling out pampas grass as it's like pulling out razor blades. Already on donkey painkillers & cider

Cool

Morning Phil and fellow early risers.

Bought myself a high pressure washer yesterday, and itís Yellow. The steps down to the garage were covered in moss and that needed to be removed. Also there is a concrete area at the bottom of the decking that need cleaning. Looks so much better now.

Morning all, send some heat this way Phil, it was 4.5 on the drive in to work this morning.

I have to get the pressure washer out for the cars Bob, they look like they have been in a field at the moment.

Good Morning you early birds .

Overcast, quite bright and dry here.

Positively tropical compared to Andy at a whopping 5 degrees .

Yesterday I was building a bed frame for MIL's fancy electric bed for when she comes out of hospital. Those with a good memory might remember that she fell and broke her hip on 31st January and she's still in after some other unrelated stuff was found. Oh, and now she's got COVID but seems to be OK and on the mend.

Got the local B&Q to cut the 18mm MDF sheets to size which was all good. Unfortunately SWMBO likes "invisible" joinery - shelves with no visible brackets, cabinets & boxes with no visible screw heads etc. So, no visible screws despite protestations that it won't be structurally sound if screwing through the corner timbers (that are also the weight bearing supports for the bed itself ) into the MDF rather then through the MDF and into the wood.

Glued & screwed to try and overcome some of the issues but, guess what, two of the corners have split out and now require remedial work. . I can think of some other uses for Ian's new toy and I'm now all experienced with sharp stuff you can throw

Have a good one and take care.

Morning all,

Fairly new member here but have had a lot of use with how-to guides etc on the site already.

Been browsing a bit more over the last couple of days as, like everyone else it seems, I'm off work with Covid. Nothing serious, just like a very heavy cold but hopefully it'll clear up over the next few days.

The lucky thing is, working in a school, I avoided it completely for the previous two years and especially to get married three weeks ago, definitely a close call!

Thought you might like to see the 75 having been 'decorated.' My wife's family tradition is to let the kids help and it also included confetti all over the inside... Safe to say it was fully cleaned up so we could take it on honeymoon to the Lakes.
