been tasked with producing a 'Busy Board' for Shem to keep him amused ....... WTF is one o' they I hear you say ? ... my reaction too

so having been edumacated in their nuances, via a Google crash course ...
and supplied with dimensional parameters as to where it's likely to end up in Plymouth --- an 8' x 4' sheet wasn't required -- thank **** !! ...
would've taken some filling, I set about said task ...



several coats of paint later and we were ready to add a few trinkets

bench has been littered with all sorts .. some stuff from stock and some newly acquired items ..



not finished yet, but getting there ...... hopefully it'll meet approval ...




Been bloody cold standing about fannying with this though and didn't quite know WTF to start with it initially ... bit 'abstract' for my 'engineering mind'

Hopefully a couple more hours tomorrow'll see it wrapped up ....... assuming i get any sleep tonight ....
very little un with a nasty cold and coughing fit to bust,
two year old who sleeps in fits and starts, when he feels inclined
and four year old Clara,
all in residence tonight

ear plugs and defenders to hit the sack with i think ..... LOL

a 'Clara sleepover' with cousin Shem was Granny's idea .. she can deal with the inevitable consequences

got left 'holding the baby' earlier, for half an hour, when the rest of 'em went out in the pitch black, with torches for the kids, on an 'owl hunt' ...
of which there are plenty to listen to 'round here ....
little one is not well at all ...
and I made damned sure they took phones with them .... in case ...
way above my pay grade, skill set or experience !!!

OK --- this should've gone on 23-12-19 .... but due to 'bucket issues'

Job done ..... just needed to wrap it .... could've been fun



surprising how long this sort of thing takes to do (to a decent standard )

24th dec......

well I've done my bit of wrapping ...... over to SWMBO for the fancy bit



been absolutely lashing down here this morning .....
got drowned after this bit ... loading Josh's van for a Boxing day departure with miscellaneous crap, we're fed up of storing .... and a gert big box of me firewood ... complete with my blood and sweat from lopping it up ... he's a 'big boy' FFS . surely there're trees etc., in Plymouth

been some bit of water accumulated in two hours this morning ... didn't start 'til I had to go outside and just fell out the sky ...



more than the drains can cope with ... need to get this raised as soon as I can get Steve / Mike here with two loads of planings, hopefully after Crimbo ... his yard stock pile bays are empty apparently ... after someone took 2000+ tonnes off him in December

ditches and drains all over topping ........ there surely can't be much left up there !!!

and so it was on to the next little can you just ...... had no idea what sort of challenge this 'un was gonna be ...



kiddy's Ikea --- sort of .... flat pack doll's house
wasn't too bad, but'd have challenged yer average Joe Soap IMHDO ...
destructions weren't too bad ... but swapped a few processes round to make life a bit easier ... main thing was the space needed

Granny was talking about wrapping it ..... " right .. you have got to be kidding me "!!



'bout 1200mm tall FFS !!!!



went together well, I have to say .... 4 poster bed was the biggest challenge!!!

So ..... dunno what all you builder boys are on about ... whole house in two hours - ish LOL ...... all work under cover ... this house building game seemed a doddle

so ... nigh on up to date again

hope everyone had a great Crimbo and a good evening last night ... Happy New Year and decade to you all

Christmas with the little uns was a combination of getting coughed, sneezed or vom.ed on ..... with the inevitable consequence of catching a whole new variety of bugs .... not been great for the last week or so !!

rather knackered my planned new bits fitting regime for the P38 and have done what I can, as I summoned the enthusiasm, between Clara visits, the rain and feeling shite.

been a right bitch of a job .... 20 odd years of salt attack has not been kind to the old girl, with several bolt heads eaten down a few sizes !!

just getting it to this point ... what should've been a POP .... was uphill





and getting it to this was hard fought ....



swivels are fine .... but the rubbers are banjaxed ... MOT man wasn't happy last year and said change 'em ... the rubbers that is .... gotta split it all so might as well do the complete works ....

bottom joint has an 'adjustable' collet holding the taper .... would like to meet the **ick who designed that



constant pressure/tension at max. with heat and much thrashing .....

has resulted in ...... zero progress .... I've 'played nice' ....... now it's gas axe time ......... I miss my 4 poster .. soooo much ... might see if i can buy it back ... don't think the mate I sold it to has used it .... could sit it anywhere on me patch on its base frame

Rough night last night from all the grunting, heaving and straining ... not allowed to play today ... felt fine first thing .. lot better than I did at 03.00 ... but that'd be the Tramadol cocktail talking ... like having a new body

having dragged my sorry arse outside today ..... man flu ... no sleep last couple of nights ... drowning in snot .....
must've looked as rough as I felt - actually been getting sympathetic noises from the boss
..........the hub carrier's ball joints had to have the disc ...



top one was spinning ...
and having successfully undone the bottom nut, had the windy chisel on it, with a ball joint splitter fork, crow bar and all manner of other tactics .................
I cut the ****er off!!!



that ABS sensor was a total bar steward to get out too ....
two on order ...
hour plus to remove it ... totally welded into its copper sleeve, which was also welded into the carrier ........



lollipop stone and flap wheel in the die grinder later and it looked a lot better ...
might get a bit more refinement, once I have the new bits for a measure up first .. don't want 'em ending up loose in there

needle gun on the casting next time I'm out there ...
hopefully tomorrow ... 'sposed to be sunny tomorrow ..
wind was enough to take your ears off today and enthusiasm levels were in the minus category

can well see the rest of the bits of ball joints, in the forks, getting the gas axe to extract them ...
no way are they going to press out, looking at the state of 'em ......
special tool or not .... be handy for pressing the new ones in though

the hard won remnants .....



.. so far, today!!!!!!!

if I can get some zeds, upright, in a chair tonight, without drowning, I'll be well happy ....

I'm a grumpy ****er, deprived of sleep

had the last one (hopefully) of these yesterday ...





after almost eight years doing it .... gonna be odd, not surrendering 2 hrs of a Monday morning to the chair.

set me alarms on't phone for 12 hourly alerts .... starting 10.30 this morning for me first one o' these ......



had #2 at 22.30 ....

real fancy box they come in ... with a 'lock' .... press at "1" and pull at "2" ..



tha's a weeks-worth ..... ... get a months-worth delivered at a time, like with the enzyme, for a few months to see how it goes ....
bit 'experimental' ... told there's only about 25 others on it ATM ...
if me body'll cope with it they'll let me have 3 months-worth in a hit .....
and no fridge required got to give it a go and can always go back to the old regime ... if i have to

Guts are currently grumbling and growling like never before .... well maybe after a serious curry 'praps LOL .....
but no curry tonight .... all fingers crossed for a 'quiet' night !! ....


there's pages of side effects .... but so was there for the enzyme (hamster juice) and only suffered a few, occasionally ......
must confess to being somewhat 'nervous'!!!

still not shifted this bloody cold .. head full of snot all the time
have managed to get the off side of the P38 back together, in the odd dry hour or two .....

ball joints too some pressing out ....


bottom one was a bitch




and had to make up a sleeve to suit the job ....
what came with the 'new toy box' just wasn't up to it ...
too big to sit on the very limited face ....



slit some 76 chs and closed it up ...

jubilee kept it nicely tight and adjusted tight to the ball joint ..
