Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

We both booked our first covid jabs for this Saturday last week, letters arrived yesterday asking us to book. The NHS could save themselves a lot of postage if all the vaccine centres, local and mass, were coordinated. Second jabs are booked for May, managed to book both of us in same place, same ti...

Re: WHAT DID WE HAVE FOR TEA?

I used to get ham hocks, when Steve Hirst had the butchers on Newtown, and made pea and ham soup. Not done that in a while so might have to revive it. I did have to initially simmer the hocks for about 20 minutes, drain off the water and then start the simmering process again. It reduced the saltine...

Re: Miscellaneous DIY Projects (or bits of jobs)

The PIR carriage lamp outside my back door has decided to stop 'sensing'. The usual reset procedures haven't resolved the issue so it's time to get a new one, I would have needed to move it anyway to suit the new French doors that are going in in the next few weeks. I've ordered a replacement from S...

The interweb was in its infancy, though I recall an NTL email address. It must have been over twen...

Had the 'full dismantle' boiler service this morning. It also needed a double check valve, for the filling loop, as it should have had one at installation (2017). £70 all in.

Very pleased with that.
