But lets be honest - any other retiree with lost of time and little money would have done the same.


Impressed on the blipper mods, I wouldn't know were to start, I have to keep assigning a new button on mine as the switch under wears out & I'm on the last one now

The remote controls are available online - I think I bought some off Amazon for our garage door opener. They are easy to pair with the unit and not expensive- I keep a couple of spares around. I matched the new remotes to the information on the motor unit re frequency band.

After mistakenly testing the tensile strength of a mains cable on my Ctek charger I found it was weaker than the torque of a classic Mini banghead

So a repair was required...

After 12 years of the promised screen for the oil tank down in the hidden part of the garden got around to ordering this lovely Hazel traditional Devon made hurdle £80 but it's keeping craftsmen in a job I keep telling myself.
I've got to say I really enjoyed driving the stakes in with the sledgehammer I can't remember the last time I did that.

A wildflower seeding is planned for next year as a pair of boots for it I'm told smile to keep the Dartmoor wild Strawberry bed company, they have been prolific this year.

We have now returned from Elba and are up in the mountains at the summer palace until the end of August laugh The wild strawberryss are just about finished but in compensation the wild raspberries are starting to rippen. We had our first taste of some ripe wild raspberries whilst out for a walk this afternoon.

What a lovely looking panel though, doesn’t seem expensive for real crafting skills. It’s only a tank of fuel after all (that’s often how I justify spends to myself ;-))

That sounds good, I'd never heard of wild raspberries but often strawberries when we are wild walking.
Our garden wild one's start the middle of June and last year the first week of October was the last one's but nowhere near the numbers that we have enjoyed this year, and all from a plant Heather acquired on a Dartmoor trip at a farm stall.
