been a crap week in Druid central .... up in the roof space Sunday afternoon, wrestling the 10mm armoured into place in an isolator.......



got it tailed in and out and suddenly thought .... " get out o' here 'fore you pass out " shut the hatch and left it all .... would've taken some getting out of there unconscious ....
dunno WTF it is? Whether i picked up summat in't roof space, which is real tight and not been in there in maybe 5 years or some other bug, but've felt totally shit all week ... so sod all done .....

this happened Thursday morning .....



40mm in 90 minutes ..... then it pee-ed down



all gone by tea time .... here anyway .... hills have only cleared this morning - just about

these fell off the back of a truck on the patch earlier



.... Dylan's truck to be precise
Have had Diggerjones and his lovely wife and daughter land on a flying visit, 'en route' elsewhere, local-ish .... such a pity they didn't have more time for some Druid hospitality .... hopefully some other time soon, when they have more time ... lovely people and the great guy I thought Dylan'd be, from all our previous comm.s

Plus he really spoiled me with a .........

Yanky version






would still love to know where the hell mine went ??????

So a BIG thank you to Mr Jones, all round ..... see if I can't find t'others I have, for a photo-call some time ... they got to be in one of two boxes ... or I've lost 'em

sun has put in an appearance today, after two horrendously wet (and snowy) days, but with a nice drying wind, 'tis a bit on the cool side out there
Got a very sore eye, after it burst a blood vessel over night, Tuesday .. no idea how/why
.. but it did and showing it the wind makes it want to jump out of my head .... so those forks're gonna have to stay put, where they landed, for today
.... exertion and / or wind chill is a definite no no for a day or three

The Dane decided to play silly buggers last Saturday ....

spent two plus hours pissing about with it, trying to get the bloody thing to run ... would start, run a few seconds then cut out

went through EVERYTHING again ... twice ..... so many lock outs/cutouts/etc on it it takes some tracing, but I thought we were looking at an ignition switch issue ...
so new one sourced and duly ordered .....

I think it was dropping the solenoid valve in the carb ... after it'd run a few seconds, it'd exhausted what little fuel was between it and the jets and dying .....
solenoid valve was clicking in as crank is engaged and assume it was not maintaining it ....
had to start somewhere on isolating the bloody fault and the switch was well tired anyway ...............
was gonna be happy if that cured it, but at least it was a start on the fault finding........... that I thought i'd sorted before

so..... posty brought me a new switch wednesday ..... out with the old and in with the new Dane ran like a watch and started first time ...... this had obviously been giving intermittent issues for some time
One happy Druid today
14 quid well spent and a Sthil bagged part .... perfect swap for OE spec.

Grass massacred beside the drive for another week



followed by the lawn with the Countax ..... finally feeling relatively normal again, at last and ready to get going again ......... 'bout bloody time

spent a couple of hours Thursday clearing up the 'horsey girls' crap, up at the turning area
horse shit and straw everywhere ..... forgot to take one 'fore I got going on it ...... but this was 3ft deep in crap .... needs to dry some more now it's uncovered ... flat it over again and could really do with a load of planings over it ....... they're too bloody idle to walk to the back edge and tip their barrows over it ..... words will be had AGAIN !!



all the big bales gone, so a major square up right across and flatted out all the ruts, the traccy boys made shifting 'em ..... was looking 100% tidier afterwards



forecast is good and dry for the next 10 days, so a.n.other hour to finish off when it's all dried again and the job's a good un .... might actually have a decent Easter w/end for once

Had the pleasure of Daz's company for several hours on Friday .... came down to collect these ....



.... have a mooch about and generally chew the fat ... think he may be back for some more of the view ... soon .....and almost certainly accompanied next time
Was great to meet you and have a proper chat at last Darren, rather than passing ''Hiyas'' at Welland or brief tel. con.s

As said Boyo ... welcome anytime yer fancy chilling in the sun for a few hours and letting the world go by !!

gave the Coutax yet another clean out yesterday morning in an attempt to get yon lawn, as short as poss .....



can't believe the amount that accumulates in the deck in a few cuts !!!

Blades off .. good clean around the spindles and a serious touch up with the 4" grinder .... desired result achieved ... one very short cut lawn !!

spotted some lodgers in the 'Drema's wheel wedge as I walked past it ....







couldn't see any inhabitabts and guessing it's a bird rather than a mouse ... access'd be interesting for a long tailed furry friend!!

Better have a good look around it elsewhere ..... don't want anything catching fire !!!!

another gorgeous day in Druid central .... stretched the Dane's legs again this afternoon ... it's never run so well .... all 'cos of a dodgy ign. switch ..... one for the memory banks






put the Countax's sweeper over over it all and collected up the Dane's carnage ....



can be a bit bit exciting keeping all four of its wheels on the deck ... bit like riding a racing sidecar at times, whilst trying to keep enough of a bum cheek on the seat's cut out to keep it running

should be good for a. n. other week, or more, now it's good and short ...... bank, t'other side of the driveway's next .... that can be a fun hour

guess where I've been this afternoon



goggles, mask, CO meter, etc. and ventured back into the roof space where I'd left everything a couple of weeks ago when I abandoned me post feeling rough as a dog.

got a fair bit sorted and one pair of tails for me catenary re-routed through the isolator and from thence to the boxes.
still got the 10mm tails to 'persuade' down into the consumer unit from the isolator, to feed the black shed with ..... Pam was off out at 5 and I wasn't allowed to play with the live bits, once she'd left so a job for the morning

took a couple of pix of Pam's 'new' sleeper flower boxes, before it pee-ed down this morning ..... they're maturing nicely

I would really like to meet the muppet who wired our consumer unit ....



what a pig's guts ..... no one seems to take a pride in their work anymore, or the extra few minutes to make a tidy job of it ... should be shot !!



tails inserted gynecologically and suitably inserted in their final resting places amongst the mayhem already there



time to go see if everything was as it should be ..... now't had tripped or gone off pop .....



well happy with the results......other than a weird anomaly with the outside floods ??????

I have them set up on a two way circuit which can be activated/switched off from either the house or a switch on the outside of the shed ....
was fine one way .... t'other 'way' they were briefly flashing on ??????

lot of head scratching, circuit checking, wiring investigating, more head scratching and it came to me ......
these IP67 switches I like, for outdoor use, have a 'tell tale' neon in them, so's you can find 'em in the dark. The neon can be wired one of three ways .... on a one way circuit only it would appear ....
pity the data sheet with them doesn't say it can't be done on a two way circuit, even though they're a two way switch!!

the flashing was the neon triggering the LED floods through a 'sort of' 'leak' to live ..... took it out of circuit ... problem cured .... took a little thought, but sussed it in the end .

now awaiting darkness to see just what sort of results we have .... both in't shed and outside.

another hour back in me favorite place to square up and secure everything ....



I like flexi conduit .... bit easier than SWA and greater choice of core numbers, as needed!!



trying to thread it all amongst the pig's guts above the consumer was as 'uphill' as it actually was in the unit, tight in a corner



and I was out o' there



must fix a couple of permanent crawl boards in there for future access to the isolator , for 'as and when' !!

Am I glad to have that end wrapped up !!

been a wild 36-48 hrs here ..... horizontal rain and howling winds ..... which continued well after the rain stopped ... and dried it all again

can not believe the grass growth in a couple of days and well happy to find it all dry enough to massacre this afternoon





Sparty did his usual trick of riding round on my lap whilst i tried to keep the mower on course ....



he draws the line at the Dane though
