Here, here to all that, Matt. As you say, you can easily end up with too much and it's just great to enjoy a newbie or two but we must be grateful for the great machines we already own and cherish. Any road, you mention building, house stuff / home improvements / real estate and here's just a couple of pics of recent developments here that we're chuffed to bits with: BEFORE out the front: NOW: BEFORE (hallway - landing and area under the stairs also got plastered): AFTER (still needs painting - waiting for the ruddy plaster to completely dry the carpet the lot): BEFORE... FRIDAY... TODAY... Chris is a helluva good mate, one man team and he also fitted our kitchen. Here he is assembling the frame for the decking. Things are definitely improving and we can now see the light at the end of the tunnel. Hope you guys are also beginning to see the difference thanks to any of your home DIY and improvements you've been tackling of late.
