    Afternoon folks :).

    So the first job of the day was to see that the paint has nearly dried and we only needed a few more tiles to fill:D.
    So pulled the fan cover off the pump and its now turning (water in it now);) anyway put some lube on it and put back together. Same problem:eek:, Yep I am missing the main power to the pump cos I didn't switch it on :oops::oops:. Anyway it works:rolleyes:.
    So its been on all day paid for by Mr Sunshine:D.
    Temp is 18 at the moment so not getting in soon;). Summer cover is now on and I expect 22 by Sat:).

    Off too a new town for us to pick up Ms friend whos flying in so we have a hotel for Friday night as she arrives late, so will take a look around in the afternoon then a bit more on the Sat morning, probably arrive home to 3 ****ed off cats:). Well it depends who is stuck in or out at the time of leaving but its pot luck for them;).

    Strange, ours always show up on parade for breakfast complaining, If we have a layin then often a bat on the nose is felt, (or shut the door at night before they could come in):D
    Well except for the 1 who prefers the outdoor life:).

    Glad he/she has shown up:).

    Did you go up in the loft for anything?
    I've just seen that the search is over - I am delighted. :)

    Me too! She's looking a bit "unhappy" up there in her basket and has not pestered me for any food, so maybe she ate an unripe mouse or something. ;)

    .... according to Amazon I will be reimbursed fully for the incorrect collet set that I was sent by them and they will chase the supplier.
    When the money does come in, I will try again but I will buy from a reputable UK supplier in the business. :)

    It really is a shame about your experience with these. I have ER16, 20 & 32 all from Amazon. The 16's I bought last week to go with the toolpost grinder.

    We used to have one who liked to go up chimneys. He'd stand thoughtfully in the fireplace for a while and then disappear, with occasional tiny sprinkles of soot and mortar falling into the grate to indicate where he was. If I shone a torch up I could see him looking at me, but if I reached up he'd go further and further up into the stygian gloom. Eventually he'd drop back down into the fireplace and then find somewhere comfortable to sit, preferably on a light coloured furnishing fabric, and lick himself back to his usual colour.

    Afternoon folks:).

    Had a bit of a lazy day;) cos I can:).
    Fixed the guest loo that was leaking found the required seal in all my "junk";).
    Heading towards hot here, Pool has been balanced and is at around 20 so maybe swimmable soon, for us oldies that like it warmish:).
    I have got to have another shave tomorrow before we go to the hotel for the night not sure I can afford all these razors this will be 2 in a week:eek:.
    Apparently I have to put on some good trousers/jeans and find a couple of presentable shirts:rolleyes:.

    Went in the garage for tools today and its lovely and cool, humm now what do " I need" to do:rolleyes: all the LR products are behaving so must think of a reason.

    Girls off to pickup some reconditioned wood burners for a place, but I now have to find a place to store them. The guy does a cracking job, he buys from the scrapyard and sorts them:).

    We've been promised some sun today but it is still a bit too early to tell if this is what is happening, I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
    It's a real Friday today so that should make everyone 'appy. :)
