Thank you for those comments Feltwell and FF... :oops:

Retirement? It seems a long time ago! I mentioned in the New Grump of the day Topic a while ago that I fell for the "you're the only man to show us " spiel and ended up showing myself how to do the work!! Oh well, that's Ireland but I wouldn't live anywhere else.

Most of the work is standard stuff but can so easily be made a hames of with lack of attention to detail but I suppose that's true of many things. An example is to take care to space clips both correctly and at the right centres on the hip and ridge flashings both aesthetically and to best help resist any wind lift of the free edges.

The welding isn't exactly exhibition standard but not too bad considering shaky hands (and scaffold :) ) along with wind and weather conditions!! Nowadays it's an achievement (and a lot of puffing) to climb up the scaffold to get to the work... :lol:

You always do superb work, they are lucky to be able to learn from a master, I confess I'm a little surprised to see Mrs Beckham there though :wink:

I think she's let herself go a bit - are those "love handles" I can see part way down? :wink:

She's not wearing my hardhat. Mine is the yellow one...obviously not a fashionable colour. I might consider changing it, I'd hat not to be fashionable... :shock:

Maybe those are some sort of implants that slipped... :)

Good to have you back Lady A :D :D :D

Thanks, I had been lurking, but my "read in bed in the morning" machine got sulky and would dump me out all the time and so commenting became a pain in the rear end.

If you have a machine that's dumping you out of bed on to your rear end, I suggest that you have a strong case for a warranty claim.

Spring is Sprung! The daffodils are out, and here at Feltwell Towers the lawnmower has emerged for the first time this year - AND it started on the second pull! :D

Every year I think it will be it's last, but with a puff of smoke it starts and rattles away.

It's so nice to be outside in warmth & sunshine. 8)

Hear hear - lovely to be able go outside without shivering. Another few weeks and I won't have any excuse to delay the huge amount of limewashing on my to-do list.

I had also planned to mow the lawn for the first time this year, but it has been raining here all day. Sticking with the seasonal theme I've been spring cleaning (or dealing with the thick layer of building dust and reminding myself of the colour of the carpet). I tidied the workshop yesterday because I couldn't find any of the tools I needed.

Ahh, belt & braces eh Malcolm? Tidying means you're now guaranteed not to be able to find them (but also that you saw it in that pile over there that you tidied up yesterday) :wink:

It is of course now chucking it down here. I blame Mrs F for forgoing the tumble dryer and putting washing out to dry for the first time this year.
