what to do, to get through lockdown

The place to kick back, relax, post general bullshit, and grill a few on the BBQ. Whatever doesn't fit into another forum would go here. We periodically go through and move posts to the correct forum, but we do charge a case of Beer every time we have to.

SO, anyone picked up a new skill, new hobby ?
I, got to see my driveway was in a real shit order, so have relaid all the flags, well, all bar last three :hysterical:

and the back garden here was more a tip than garden, so that too has been attacked, and as we speak is going under a thorough development, gone is the lawn the previous owners hound used for hole digging practice, and the new patio area is coming on nicely :)
will add pictures soon, but just about to go back to work, got another 4 nights to get through

stay safe all

New baby how's that ;-)

Other than that nope. I was classed as an essential worker early on so I've been expected to be on call and checking email/Teams the whole time.
Builder has actually started putting up our house again. We've got the frame up finally with the felt and tiles to go on next week.
He says we'll be in for end September, I think he's blowing hot air out his arsehole tbh.

I almost wish I had some DIY to do. But we're in a rental so I'm doing nowt.

TBH I don't even have time to wash the cars. Mine is only clean coz the garage washed it when it was in for a recall.

as for the BACK Garden, it is still a Work in Progress, BUT there IS some progress to show - but I appear to have hit a limit somewhere, so it will have to wait :P :)
