I get up, today I have a fair few jobs to do. And so I have a cup of tea and
Then switch the electrics off. Well all the sockets anyway.
And then I head to the first socket of the day. A single one that always needs to be more than one. And there is more than one way of doing this.
I’m choosing the easy option. I select the bottom of the two plugs to put here.
I unscrew the socket face plate. What horrors will lurk behind?
I gently pull the tight wires.
And undo them without dying.
A while latter the surface mounted socket has been converted to a 4 way gang.
Not bad actually.
Mean while in the retro room….
This twin box mounted plug needs converting. Now I wanted to do this one for a specific reason, and that is to do with the mains internet network I have.
Off with the box lid.
And a while later we have the 4 way gang box on. And the internet network distributor plugged directly into a socket now and not into an extension lead, just like the instructions tell you. Does it make any difference? No it doesn’t. Down stairs it is still a crap speed.
I got this about 3 weeks back. I don’t need one, I already have one.
Here it is, but this one leaks when on, hence the cover catchment, however this often overspills and thus causes damp, so lets get replacing it.
Off with the hose connection.
And off with the end of the pipe.
Now lets see if we can get this off and use the same pierced hole, if not that will make the job bigger.
Much later on and many attempts at getting the hose connection to not drip it is done.
Yay and with that.
All the testing has filled the pond.
And so onto the real job o the day. No not the fence.
But goodbye slabs on the right.
After moving the plants, its time to get the tool of the day out.
I use plenty of muscle power swinging the big sledge hammer. Man the larger slabs are strong.
A while later you have got to ask yourself, really?
Yep that is the main main earth for the house.
Awesome. A small green line not the big one. The cable isn’t thick enough either really.
But lets not let that distract us, on with more action with the tool of the day.
Second trip to the tip today.
I empty ERDE.
Back at base I have a use for one of the big slabs, I can put it under the BBQ.
And so with tiding up.
I position the plant pots for now
And then turn my attention to the car.
I give her a good soapy wash over.
That should leave her gleaming later.
And for a moment /i admire my winter pansies.
Nice and colorful.
The ones in the back hanging basket are in bloom too.
This is it then.
This is where I got to.
And so I head indoors.
Where I find the cat taking it easy.
And happy sitting in the sun.
I get my trusty stead from next door.
And head to my parents for tea.
But really all my achy body wants is to rest in the fresh bed linen I changed this morning, how divine.
