evening all, not been able to pop in for a while, but have sort of caught up, enjoy the bowling Dean, Don't mention backs I.Q. I slipped a disc ten years ago and don't have a day without pain now, you just learn to live with it, really annoying when you like to do practical things, My house now sparkles like a new penny having been cleaned to within an inch of it's life, tree etc all going up tomorrow,. Christmas came early for me as I picked up my new greenhouse today, 8 x 6 in a nice powdercoated green finish with toughened glass, cant wait for the new year to get the base ready weather and bad back permitting. Beers and scd tonite yeah!

Hey, nice job, should look great with some climbers growing up it. It's very satisfying to have made something and you should gets lots of pleasure from it.

I used to use vinegar but tried the corn flour instead after reading about it, and it's worked so far I must admit it's a horrible task so anything to make the job easier is ok by me. If I could I'd use the pressure washer but swmbo wouldn't be too pleased

Hi Guys, just sat down, after a busy day,  sorry to hear some are still feeling under the weather, hope you feel better soon, missed the comps again, never mind I'd have been wrong anyway, I got away from work early and had a play with the new shredder what a toy that is, couldn't stop once I got going and all the pruned branches are now a nice pile of chipped mulch ready for the front garden. I then turned to doing the inside of the windows,(It's a christmas thing they're clean but need to be done again before the tree goes up) Mrs Norm stands at just on 4 foot ten inches in racing trim and ours is an old house with 9 and a half foot tall ceilings and tall windows to match so windows are down to me, armed with my new secret formula,  a spray bottle of warm water mixed with a teaspoon of corn flour and a dash of the best washing up liquid, a squeegee and a Karcher window vac I set too and they now glisten, so I am in the good books and can get back to playin in the garage. Christmas has now been moved from the loft to the landing, I read up a bit more on this composting malarky and have a bit of a hamlet dilemma to  add pee or not to add pee that is the question  time for a quick beer and bed, catch you all soon

Hi all, oops missed competition, never mind, been out to pick up a shredder for the garden, pruned back neighbours tree which was overhanging my garden by about 12 feet and I can't believe the difference it's made, top half of garden and even the kitchen are 50% brighter, It was scary swaying about up the top of a ladder but so worth it. most of the branches should go through the shredder making a mulch for front garden and everything for the new compost bin can be now be shredded first.

Hot bath, glass of wine and relaxing for the rest of the day. need to get christmas out of the loft but that can wait until tomorrow after work.

Thanks for the kind comments It's really appreciated, Obviously influenced by the great Geoff Hamilton I see various things on my travels and then think how can I make that so I can afford it, The weathervane took some work as everything is hand cut from the shape of the dog to the letters, after I made this I ended up making another one with a football club  emblem for a friends disabled father, I have the obelisks sorted now and have made 3 so far with some more planned for next year, they looked really good with sweet peas grown up them. I am really pleased with the greenhouse planter, this is the prototype and needs a fair bit more work to grind off excess welds etc, I think once it's painted, lined with moss and planted it should look really nice.

You have me stumped with the choccy geoff, my best guess is a vicar with salmonella poisoning,  If thats right your chocolatier was obviously having a bad day
