    This is excellent lockdown behaviour, especially for day one.

    I agree.

    It'll probably take me the first 3 weeks just to find the floor let alone clean it properly.

    I am in week 2 of my booked holiday that was supposed to be visiting my Grandmother in week one then go biking in Snowdonia in week 2. Last week I cleaned downstairs, this week is upstairs. If things don't pick up I might finally get around to the mighty Ebay massacre of all the stuff I don't use anymore.

    Knowing my luck I will spend even more time than usual at work from next week.

    3 days...

    Got any pictures?

    I learned to weld (badly) about six months ago and I enjoy it more than I have anything else in a long time.

    Nothing wrong with that, when I started I alternated between not getting anything to stick and melting the workpiece into a pile of goo :hehe:

    I found it a lot easier when the son-in law lent me his full face visor, was using cheapo hand held one.Complete waste of time:rolleyes:.
    I found it very satisfying, now looking for things to weld :D:D:D

    That the aluminium frame I have been working on for two days is actually 4130 steel lol. I thought it was odd it had rust on.....

    If only there was a way to verify stuff like that on frames that you strip & leave for an age before repainting them...

    I'm quite happy about it. The alu model was prone to cracking and snapping lol. Plus it means I can be less careful without denting it.

    Not just today but, over the last few days. Given my VERY limited culinary abilty, cooking for a qualified and experienced chef is quite stressful.
