    Clarke Towers (anagrams as "Treacle Works" and "Escort Walker") decorating progress report:
    Second gloss coat on bay "timbers", first masonry paint coat on main front wall areas.:)
    Just one more masonry coat and the tiled window-sills to gloss now. Almost done. :D
    I have to say that the ladders have been transmuted from "lightweight Aluminium" to LEAD (or a derivative thereof) since I last painted the walls off ladders 15 years ago.:rolleyes:
    Lifting, adjusting and positioning the ladders is a real struggle now. :(

    My son in law showed me how to position the foot of the extended ladder against the foot of the wall to keep it there while you walk the rest of the ladder up. I cannot think how anyone does it different, apart from ...........
    .......pulling the ladder up with a rope and pulley, which is a flipping nightmare, would rather do it the other way, but you do need the room in front of the house to do it.

    Sounds good.
    We had Sausages, cheesy-mash (topped with more cheese & toasted under the grill) & green beans with onion gravy on Saturday. Really simple, very tasty, and a great meal. :D

    As theres just me and SWMBO it does not meet the requirements of frivolous and fun. I did suggest a ferry and road trip through france and spain to get to the canaries but SWMBO put an instant block on that idea. Might have to go on me own :D.
