Sunday things

I have spent the day on some DIY. I am on stage 1 of a building plan.

We have a garage that is detached from the house and the people who owned the house before extended it. To date, this area has been a bit of a junk space. The plan has been to build a wall to make a room and then plasterboard the walls. While doing this, I also intend to add insulation. This "new" room will be the gym and perhaps in the longer term a home cinema!

So stage 1 started today with me building a stud wall. It has taken all day to build the wall and I still have the hardboard to put up. It has been bloody hard work! I'll keep you up-to-date as I am sure you are so excited to know about my expensive and amateur project... that I have been putting off for 2 years.

In other news...

The last "5 on the fifth" had some great pictures, but was low on participants. Next month I intend to do some serious promotion and also ask every reader to help promote my little monthly bit of fun, even if they don't take part themselves.

Last night Pete and I went into the local town with our neighbours. Had a good meal at Prezzo (complete with voucher) and a good few drinks. We got a taxi home and the driver decided that the speed limit was a basic minimum and he was clearly in training for a Formula One team. I was lucky to get away with a very mild hangover.

And one other thing. A major event happened on Thursday night; I slept right through the night for the first time in around a year


  1. I'm glad you didn't think a stud wall was a wall with all your posters of scantily clad men on it! Although that may also inspire you to Do It Yourself...

  2. DIY is the true test of a man, excellent stuff sir.
