  1. I wouldn't go that far geezer 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔😉
  2. Told you it was good 😉😉😉
  3. Back breaking work. Managed to get the first "tier" of the garden dug over and de-weeded. In she moves with her plants. Parsley, Sage and Thyme sitting there waiting for Rosemary to turn up to the party..........
  4. I know what you mean about the JRC hangers. I've tried using them but they were absolutely useless, same problem as you. If you are looking for a relatively inexpensive solution, the Wychwood "Slugs" are very, very good. Available in a range of colours, (I have the orange ones which are very easy to spot), they fit easily onto your line and more importantly release very easily on picking your rod up. Nice handy slot for an isotope too. Highly recommended. If you wanted to spend a little more money, the Jag Safeliners are also very good. In practice, I found them a little trickier to get on the line, especially in low light conditions, but again they release very easily on a take. As I say, they are not cheap and work out a lot more expensive than the Slugs as you have to buy the special hockey sticks separately. The Slugs come with everything you need. They are also not as "visual" as the Slugs, the brighter colours available on the latter really do help. I like my bobbins to be light, so in both instances swapped out the supplied chains with cord replacements, which is very easy to do. I am now using Delkim slimlites, I find these to be fantastic. But I have kept both my Slugs and Safeliner sets as back ups. For me though, the Slugs are unbeatable for the price. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Wychwood-Slug-Singles-Yellow/dp/B01CAG6YGK/ref=pd_sbs_200_2/261-8999168-5343421?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B01CAG6YGK&pd_rd_r=2a49a3a1-21e0-4f37-868c-1668ed47bdc2&pd_rd_w=SxD6h&pd_rd_wg=bp8Pb&pf_rd_p=2773aa8e-42c5-4dbe-bda8-5cdf226aa078&pf_rd_r=HGF1E1JNT8D52V804SY9&psc=1&refRID=HGF1E1JNT8D52V804SY9
  5. Blankety Blank cheque book and pen!!
  6. I've had the Black Widows before, and as a "starter" bait runner they're hard to beat at the price. Others I'd consider would be something in the Okuma range.
  7. Day off from Gardening today, and up nice and early for a day session at the Cottage. Chances are, I'll be the only one there. Fingers crossed, this will be going one of two ways lol!!! 😉
  8. My Missus has begged me to shave twice through the lockdown so far, and I did as I was asked. Bit cheesed off, 'cos this would look a lot better today if I hadn't bothered. How old skoole carpy would I have looked...
  9. You're not 64 are you geezer??? 😱😱😱😱😱
  10. Hope everything goes as well as can be expected tomorrow mate. Chin up 👍🏼
  11. Coming along....................................
  12. My place will be empty on Wednesday mate. Plus the few swims that we have are at least 50 yards apart, some are 200 yards apart. The only "iffy" place would be the cabin, but if I take a couple of containers of water I won't have to go anywhere near there. I feel 100% confident that there will be no risk at all.
  13. Have now received an email telling us we won't be going back until 1st June (at the earliest). Gives me longer to think things through, Have provisionally booked a swim for Wednesday....... 😉
  14. I've never tried to be honest!! I expect you could just sit on it without any of the legs folded out as they just fold up neatly underneath, but how comfortable it would be I haven't got a clue! I'd never personally use mine like that as I'd never be able to haul myself up in the event of a run... 😢😢😢 I'll give it a go later and let you know as long as I don't end up in traction 😉😉😉
  15. Got the same chair. Love it. Nice and comfy and got a decent height back on it.
  16. Been told I'm returning to work on Monday 18th May. Seriously considering not returning and looking for something else altogether. I don't need the hassle anymore...... 🤔🤔🤔🤔
  17. Finished for the day mate. One bit at a time, I'm not as young as I was! Little kip, shower and dinner 😉😉😉
  18. No more pics as yet, although we've filled about 5 or 6 more bags of rubbish. The thing that's killing me is the amount of bindweed. It's a pig of a job getting it all up with its root system. Being buried under decorative stones isn't helping much! Have managed to clear the larger patio area on level two, looking much, much better. Will start on the steps tomorrow. Repaint the shed and re-hang the doors, new hinges should be here Wednesday.
  19. Weeding going well. My back is killing me 😥😥😥
  20. I knew that I'd be peeing more, but never in my wildest dreams did I imagine I'd have to push...... 🙄🙄🙄🙄
  21. At my age, I have to do that in the loo every morning 😳😳😳
  22. My missus hates it when we go to B&Q lol!! Number of times we go there just to buy a few small bits and pieces and as soon as we walk through the doors I'm heading for the power tools section!! My Ryobi hammer drill is one of my prized possessions. And I've lost count of the number of drill /driver sets I've bought over the years 😮😮😮
