- Small victories – Let’s have ’em.
Changed the headlamp bulbs on my car on Friday – had to take all the trim off and the light units out. Only cracked one connector. Result!
Exactly the sort of shit I’m on about! I had to change a bulb on mine, so I spent 20 minutes freeing the bugger, put it all back together and held it in with one crew, drove to Tesco petrol station to get a new bulb. THEN PROCEEDED TO REMOVE AND REPLACE A HEADLAMP ASSEMBLY IN FRONT OF THE OTHER PUNTERS IN LESS THAN A MINUTE!!! GET THE **** IN!Posted 4 months ago
Neighbour away along the lane felling some trees. Offered to help, as the decent thing to do.
Said “Well, you won’t need firewood once you’ve got this lot seasoned nicely!”
The reply came, “Oh, we don’t have a fire. Not sure what to do with it all, to be honest.”
I’ve got wood.Posted 4 months agostumpy01Member
Wife’s birthday tomorrow, so made a simple chocolate sponge birthday cake with my daughter today.
Also went birthday pressie shopping yesterday with no real clue what to buy, but found several gifts that I know she’ll really like. It was pretty stress free too, so I took that as a win.Posted 4 months agomolgripsSubscriber
Taking woodlands in favour of construction projects is very rarely what I’d call progress.
Do you live in a house or other permanent building? Do you work in one? Do your customers/working associates also? Do you buy food or goods in shops distributed from warehouses? All these things take land that was once woodland unfortunately.Posted 4 months agowillardMember
Had a great day splitting firewood on Saturday. One of the piles of logs is now about 2 cubic metres of split firewood, so win!
Mind you, we still have three more piles to split from the other trees. And the stack we made on Saturday fell over so we have to re-stack it, but never mind!Posted 4 months agotthewSubscriber

Yes, all correct, but we should be a bit more environmentally sensative these days and be targeting brownfield and sites of lesser flura and forna habitat value that grubbing up woods.
Anyhow, that’s all OT, and I’m pleased to report that the cupboard under the kitchen sinks remain dry a week after I replaced all the wastes.Posted 4 months agoPJM1974Member
Standing in a packed Parliament Square on Saturday, with the nicest, politest bunch of people ever when the Letwin Amendment result was announced. Even the small number of far-right loonies were treated with dignity and respect.
Oh and a uniformed copper grinned at me and shook my hand too.Posted 4 months agoMTB-IdleMember
I got fed up of having to unplug and plug in and then unplug again the various worktop height sockets in our new kitchen so I removed the two standard double plug sockets and replaced them with double sockets with inbuilt USB connectors thereby doubling the available plug space from four to eight meaning we can leave stuff like the lavazza coffee machine and milk frother plugged in all the time whilst still being able to charge our various communication devices.

Finally got round to getting some Putoline on the bike, and it really is as good as people say. Griding my drivetrain away was the biggest thing that put me off winter riding; I have done two incredibly wet crappy rides now and had a perfectly smooth silent (incredibly so in fact) drivetrain the whole time; and after both rides just hosed the mud off the bike and put it away without any attention to the chain. Magic.Posted 4 months agotwinw4llMember
Ro5ey, improved strength and mobility means less muscle imbalances so less prone to injury. Increased shoulder flexion and thoracic extension are your friend, try to squat below parallel with arms overhead to get an idea how much work is needed.Posted 4 months ago
The Turkish getup is also a great exercise for bullet proofing the shoulders.
