Well I've had some good news today I've survived the first round of redundancies, so I still have a job for the time being, so that's one less stress for a while 

That's excellent news I'm made up for you, a few beers tonight to celebrate in order I think. 😁👍

So my plans for a lathe in my cupboard have been shot down, not really fair to have a lathe on the other side of me neighbors living room, so not to be beaten by the woman i knocked this up, i give you the Floating Podtm you can set it up in any swim and drop anchor,  it is just a working model at the mo until i can get some water camo piping.

Its a good idea, when you say drop anchor will it stay rigid my only concern may be that the alarms would be Constantly going off due to the waves and movement on the surface of the water moving the bobbins, good thinking though 👍

Might put a V shape support on the front, that way you could dock a bait boat under the rods, the next folded handles fashion.

I don't know, might get kind of rhythmic after a while sounding off to the lap of the chop.

You would  need to invent some bite alarms that have pan pipe sounds or other weird hippy vibes to make that relaxing 😂,

Nash will do a drum and bass bite alarm when that goes off, it will go off 😎😎😎🤯

Day off today took the family for a walk round ferry lagoon home of the British record bream , what a lovely place that is, 

I also had an eye test and had to get old man varifocals aaaagh, there is nothing good when it comes to getting old, 🤓 especially the added cost of varifocals 😭

Finally managed to get the new retaining wall finished this week. Hard work!! Looking a bit of a mess again at the moment, but apparently it's supposed to get worse before it gets better!!!

Got to level the soil in the top tier by backfilling behind the wall this coming week, and also going to put a smaller retaining wall around the tier on the right behind the boulders. Should be fun. And a lot more light getting on the garden now that the big tree has been taken down. New shed on order to replace the monstrosity you can see. Going to look a lot better when that's in place!

Have you had the C4 film crew up your chuffer or tinky winky yet Geezer??? That's a sure sign of getting old. 

And Asda for your varifocals mate. Take it from me. Brilliant service and prices.
