Re: and today i have mostly been...

Cill? Do you mean that strip of wood (actually my chimney chiseller) that Miloš nailed up as a guide? It's a fair point though, water will capillary up behind. I'll ask. Guess it depends on which bit of the UK you're familiar with, loads of abandoned dwellings in Cumbria and the less populated bits ...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Why thankyou! :cheesy: Although I thought it was looking embarrassingly bad... That stain's been bothering me, so I've just been to find the last of the stuff we used to paint the roof timbers, I've been using it to paint broom, rake handles etc, and it's been transferred into a smaller tin because ...

Re: Front door closing sound

The bottom seal only stops water splashing up under the door, although it's quite important as its fixing holes open into the sill, if any clips are missing the water enters the sill, then the water either drains out of the drain holes, or if they're blocked (most seem to be) it sloshes about until ...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Where was I? Oh yes, all clean. I've got wood :shock: https://i.imgur.com/bgP55oy.jpg This is for the roof. T&G for the top sides https://i.imgur.com/ltEBpb5.jpg Took me all day to paint those and I'm not happy about the colour. I hate anything that's painted to look like oak that isn't and in the s...

Re: Front door closing sound

Rattle? Something loose inside? If the door lines up with the other panels don't touch the hinges. Seals can be a problem but that only usually happens when they've been replaced - new ones are stiff to start off. Latch, did you ever lubricate it? Might seem daft but a lot of people don't think of i...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Why thankyou :cheesy: I was thinking maybe it was getting boreing, then again members don't have to actually look at this thread :supafrisk: Magnet? No, sadly there are strays everywhere but we seem to be the only people who don't shoe them away. This morning I've once again been experiencing the jo...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

I have a long-running arguement with Max about the standards of driving in Croatia, I think it's appalling, he thinks it's brilliant (never mind the stats that put it down with Russia...). How many accidents did I actually see while I was here? Well, 3 I think. Well, there you go. But I've seen the ...

Finished! https://i.imgur.com/a44HR3s.jpg https://i.imgur.com/GCojyhT.jpg https://i.imgur.com/SsgoWym.jpg I didn't get so cold, wet and dirty this time, probably because most of it wasn't overhead. It took me a while to get to it today because this morning, while I was emptying the pig sty, I kept h...

Health and... what was it again? Almost done https://i.imgur.com/tvjCv4H.jpg Ah crap, I forgot about those https://i.imgur.com/6Qh4ThO.jpg I was at this point we had our first accident, Miloš was dropping the slates down the slide and I was collecting them, I'd managed to keep my fingers out of the ...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Stop it rotting away, make it clean and dry inside. Garage, workshop, large workroom upstairs, and that actually means stairs, not a sodding ladder.

Re: and today i have mostly been...

And the tv idiots came back in the evening with generators and bright lights. I don't know what time they went but it was after my second sleeping pill finally kicked in. And they were back today (so much for only 2 days), not actually outside our house, just a bit further back towards town. When I ...

Re: Clutch fixed

Sincerely? You're not talking to your bank manager! Imagine you're in a bar talking to your mates over a few beers. Feel free to swear, look at girls, spill someone's drink and start a fight.

Well actually it's a porno, so here's a picture of my cock https://images.fineartamerica.com/images-medium-large/cock-and-hen-roy-foos.jpg No filming today, they turned up just as a thunderstorm hit us. They milled about for a while and then presumably, as these artsy types do, went and got drunk so...

I suspect he spends more feeding the local fox population than he does feeding himself. Ah well, he is 85 and perfectly entitled to go a bit nutty.

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Ooh, speaking of pride and joy, mate of mine here Mislav has a rather nice black Alfa 159- Or rather he used to: in some places along with the thunderstorm Friday came hail. Mislav was caught out in it, he managed to find a tree to hide his car under but by then it was too late and he has about a do...
