Looks like I've been volunteered to help outside with Liz today, I don't mind really, she has terrible frightus, I just have to be careful I don't make my back worserer, I took so many drugs yesterday I was stumbling about all day, just because I didn't want Liz to lift a heavy box out of the car.

Hope you and Liz are keeping safe Kev?

I’m Cladding the Garage with White Plastic to tidy up its appearance.
I’ve done 2 walls up to now and put sockets in the ceiling for when my new electric garage doors are fitted.
It’s keeping me busy and out of the way.

We're fine thanks Frank, just taking care of each other and trying to stay safe, Garden center tomorrow as Liz needs some cucumber plants for the conservatory, there's a little snack bar there so we'll get lunch as well, we get to feel life is normal for a few minutes.

I wanted to clad our last garage as it was mega cold in winter, but I put all the sockets on the rafters as nothing ever got put in front of them, much better than on the walls.

We're off to Halifax this afternoon to give our new (to us) Murvi Piccolo a run out and to top up the gas tank. It recently spent a month at a local garage getting bits and pieces sorted out and we're now trying to get it ready for use.

We're looking for a new van, we'd like a PVC, with rear single beds, a 3 way fridge, hob and oven, like hens teeth so far, we can get front single beds, but we struggle to make them up, so rear would be better.

Both of us dentists yesterday. Wife had eye test and subsequent new glass's prescription this am. Just popped into Lidl on the way back and filled the boot. Now gardening and get ready to see Dermo Doc tomorrow am. I bet there will be more shopping on the way back.

Been attempting to renew our Residents Permits for two years because of Brexit. Before it was done in 5 days. This time everyone else has received theirs but mine seems to have gone astray.

Finishing off the garden bench armrests.
Looking like rain might stop play.

I had my diabetic eye test a couple of weeks ago, seem I'm going to have a cat or something.
I hope it's a Persian Kitten Kev. I always fancied one but the memsahib has said no.

Nice looking bench Terry is it a repair or a complete project you've done.


I have a cast iron/wood bench round the back, inherited with the house but the base has rotted, but the back is fine, I have been meaning to get it in the garage and do it but I am still without a useable garage, I could use it but if he sees me working in there I'll never get it finished.

I also have a lovely pair of cast iron ends we bought at some show years ago which the accountant wants me to put together into a bench seat, not sure I could even lift the buggers now :D :D :D

Take a look here http://andysimports.co.uk/. We know a single woman who bought one of his and was very happy. We have visited and he seems like a good bloke. He will make to your spec too. All sorts of prices depending on what base vehicle he imports.

Dog walk first thing. Then a builders labourer this morning. Taping aluminium tape over all the joints in the floor insulation going down in the new build. Then off to chiropodist to sort out me corns. Bought a sand pit in Lidl's on the way home for granddaughter's Birthday coming up in April. No time now for a another stint at labouring as it is time for another dog walk.

Thanks pat, the problem with all the ones he has (been before) is the vans are too small to have toilet/shower in them, beds are rock n roll, we are built for comfort not speed, but I will give them another look.

Yeah, as I thought last time, he only imports Mazda Toyota & VW, but only the small ones, Toyota do do a 3500kg truck but not conversions, as do Volkswagen, but not in Japan, shame as I would like a Mitsubishi van, great to drive.

Complete project using up timber left over from my home deck building project whilst shielding and first lockdown.

First I'd to clear out a leylandy hedge and erect fence panels. I think proving I'd beaten the stroke I suffered January 2020 was the main driver to getting it done.
