  1. Looking good @BigLen๐Ÿ‘ Getting a decent tradesman who turns up when he says he will is a definite bonus as well.
  2. Another wee project completed over the weekend. Codenamed Project Cheapskate Patio Pond. As you all know by now I like a bargain! What's better than a bargain? Free, that's what! Wanted to get a water feature in the garden but didn't want to spend too much on it so decided to see how cheap I could do it for. First off I found a big wooden box used to deliver machinery parts of some description. This I painted with a couple of coats of fence paint left at the recycling centre. I then tried to line it with builders plastic from a pal but inevitably it leaked so I relined
  3. I don't think our son likes ripping off his front spoiler yesterday! ๐Ÿ˜ฒ He'll maybe think twice about driving on grass in such a low car in the future ๐Ÿ™„
  4. In Scotland it's when the rain's a bit warmer! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  5. I don't like reading that our second gig of the summer has now been resheduled! ๐Ÿ˜ข Not a great surprise but disappointing all the same. https://www.glasgowlive.co.uk/news/glasgow-news/green-day-postpone-hella-mega-20483178
  6. @zain611our son and his 2 frieeends! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  7. Onto outside jobs now that the weather's getting better. The hedge/bushes have been annoying me since we moved in, far too high and nearly touching the house in places. Last year we got them thinned out and cut back a wee bit but I still wasn't happy with it so this week we got someone in to get them cut back a bit more. Didn't manage to get a pic before they started but the first one is after they had finished for the day on day 1. Second pic is how it's looking now! A bit too low Mrs Turvey reckons but I've told her it'll grow back ๐Ÿคž 2 LWB high top Transit van loads of
  8. Got appointment for my second one on 15th May ๐Ÿ‘
  9. Sad to hear today of the passing of a Rock n roll hero today ๐Ÿ˜ข Jim Steinmann, writer and producer of one of my all-time favourite albums, Bat Out Of Hell, died today aged 73. Also a pretty decent singer in his own right. Collaborated with Bonny Tyler as well.
  10. @zain611reminds me of a time at work. I had a dinner break at our waste transfer station. After dinner drove onto the weighbridge, got ticket etc and drove off. It was a very windy day and when I started off down the road I could hear a kinda rumbling sound. Didn't pay too much attention to it, just thought it was the wind, until I passed a work colleague going the other way! He gave me a shout on the 2 way radio that apparently I had a traffic cone stuck under the front of the truck! Sometimes at lunch the operatives would place a cone in front of the weighbridge barrier to stop
  11. Another thing I don't like about the Sharp is that while searching through the EPG you can only skip one channel at a time. On our main TV, Samsung, you can skip the whole 'page' of channels, far easier to read and quicker in my opinion.
  12. IMHO stay away from Sharp! Slow clunky software, picture average, takes 30 seconds from turning on until you can change channel/turn volume down etc Daughter has bought 2 over the last couple of years, both the same problems with them.
  13. Companies have been doing this for years! Remember Wagon Wheels? Used to be the size of dinner plates! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  14. I do like saving over 20 quid a MONTH! with just a 10 minute phone call. Plusnet Unlimited Fibre Plus with Unlimited phonecalls went up to ยฃ50 a month after our contract ran out. Phoned them up saying I wasn't happy paying that amount with new customers paying a lot less. Quoted a deal I could get from NOW broadband for the same deal for ยฃ25 a month. First of all the operative told me that they couldn't get near that price and offered it for ยฃ41-no deal! Then, after 'speaking to her manager' managed to drop it to ยฃ38-still no deal! She tried to get me to drop the free calls but I sa
