    Destroyed plasterboard with a massive hammer, up a ladder, on stairs.

    All of you, Seadog?

    I was most displeased by Old Man John next door calling “Y’ill no need thi’ choke noo, son, motors hot Innit” over the fence. As if he was listening to the soundtrack of my flourishing masculinity.

    As if I didn’t already know the proprietary function of a “Choke”…… πŸ˜₯

    I laid some turf at the weekend – not sure whether Ray Mears has ever done a show on it though

    First time using a Garden appliance with a choke on it.

    Why wasn’t there a bit in school for this

    Turned out fine. Chris 1, Connifer 0.

    Pigs was last year along with the bacon and hams.
    Not gone through a ceiling but ticked most of the rest.

    Nearly all of me. Proper comedy moment, with me hanging onto the joists by my armpits, and my legs thrashing in free space. Mrs Seadog did not see the funny side of the situation.

    What’s pink and hard?

    A pig with a flick knife

    Don’t know if ‘manly’, but many out of my comfort zone:

    Lived in a tent for over a year
    Cold showers all winter
    Shaved with a blade
    Wrestled sheep in all weather on concrete (harder than it sounds, hernia country)
    Held a live cow’s steaming prolapsed guts aloft for about 15 mins while the vet stuffed them back in.
    Fought a marauding male alpaca (I lost, gored arm and hurt pride) who didn’t wish at all to be removed from his biatchiz. thos things can run like a horse, but they run AT you…!
    Kayaked 2 miles sitting without a seat (try it one day)
    Fixed a nasty wound with superglue and tape

    ordered a skip
    filled skip with the use of a shovel and wheelbarrow only
    had 4 x bulk bags delivered
    bought a chainsaw

    Dont know what to do with all this testosterone now

    Bought a socket set, took things out of the engine of my van, fixed it, and put it back together. The fix worked too. Win.

    Of course talking about it immediately nulls the manliness! I know farmers who do all this stuff every day and never mention it. In fact they don’t talk, except in whistles and whoops. I’m a right Jessy.

    Malvern Rider – Elgar Avenue sounds like it’s getting rougher by the day!

    This is just the start, there are so many more manly things to do now eg drop the bike on an incline in the middle of no where and have to pick up 250kg on a 20 degree slope!

    She was in the bedroom below (daughter Seadog’s) saying things the likes of which I have never heard, and do not wish to hear ever again.

    well, all of this testosterone will be making the ladies of STW swoon.

    Reading your claims, I must confess to being a complete girls blouse. Only MrsMC has gone through a ceiling. Our Christmas present to each other last year was getting it fixed.

    I was complimented by a tradesman at the quality of my prep work for a bathroom refit.

    funny thread.

    Built a patio which was a lot of digging (Margate beach ’82-88 was good practice), shifting 6 tonnes of gravel and sand, stone cutting, screeding, laying & mortaring. Loved it.

    Next up, petrol-powered landscaping tools. Grrrrrrrr.

    On Thursday I’m going to drink too much strong lager, start a fight, and make inappropriate sexist comments to any one in spitting distance ( will try to spit as well) in my local just to join in…

    Very manly
