Essential tool thingy

Oct 7, 2018

Tedious, tedious job. Why do I find it so difficult? Oh, that’s right, because I’m a that-will-come-in-useful hoarder.

Cleared the worktop and put on EBay an old tile cutter. Some progress, I suppose. EBay to get rid of not needed tools. Not much money will be made, but at least I’m not throwing decent stuff away – which makes the hoarder feel quite ill.

Virago oil change

Jul 30, 2018

I could probably work out how many miles I have done on the 250 since the last oil change. Anyway, the oil that came out was rather black, so clean oil and a clean filter are no bad thing. And I didn’t create a large patch of oil on the driveway, so I’m getting a bit better at this oil changing business. Maybe I will do the oil change on the Yaris tomorrow.

A touch of security?

Jun 26, 2018

A long delayed project has been started. These are simple door and window jams that might slow up someone who tries to prize open the door. I decided not to put the lockable jams on the doors in case of a fire. I’m not sure how effective these will be as the jams are fixed with screws. I tried the bolts but these don’t fit in the frame. Ho hum. These jams might discourage a burglar.

Decorating prep

Removing careless plaster on woodwork (should have been masked) then rubbing down the paintwork ready for undercoat. Tedious, tedious job.
