A new (to me) Hibiscus syriacus variety to add to my collection This one is a hybrid called 'Walberton's Rose Moon', that has huge magenta flowers similar to Hibiscus rosa-chinensis. This one is, however, hardy in the UK.

There's plenty to learn...I spent 4 years at horticultural college, and still find new plants and flowers that I've never seen almost on a daily basis.

Following on from the towbar the other day, purchased the caravan.

Measured to perfection. Fits inside the driveway and the garage door still opens and shuts.

Two of these,

For progressing another pocket door in advance of kitchen refit starting next weekend. The multi tool makes things very simple, Rip off the inner skin of board, cut the nails holding everything together, then use a filling knife to open a small gap behind the framing to buzz through the plasterboard nails for the other side. Re-frame, pocket in, acoustic insulation, board up and away!

Before

Stud moved (about half the width, you can see where I've attacked the nails) to accomodate the pocket

A Record Power 6" bench grinder and 3 two foot magnetic tool holders so that I can finally get my tools sorted out on the wall behind my bench instead of searching through a tool bag to find them.

I'm hoping that there is a picture of Del Boy topless on the beach in next year's calendar, fingers crossed.  :king:

Looks the business. Are you going to use morse taper drills as well as straight shank?

The chuck can handle up to 16mm and for metal, I do have some larger drills with reduced shanks...up to 7/8" (22mm). If I ever need to go bigger, then I might get a MT bit. To use these though, the holes would need to be piloted out to the biggest size possible (16mm) before going bigger. However, it's going to be used more for woodwork, and as long as it can drive a hole cutter, a spade bit or an auger bit, it'll be fine for my needs.

This but unfortunately I entrusted the buying to Big M she got a bit confused during the online process.

Nice job, better on the feet and a lot easier to brush/vacuum clean. I have similar, made from recycled polypropylene.

Found a pic.

A Lafuma 'Futura' recliner chair for the garden. The zero gravity position where your legs are raised higher than your heart is supremely comfortable. I was asleep in the sun within a couple of minutes...:thumbsup:

Being ever the optimist a new pair of white shorts.

And I didn’t let Big M order them online I went to a shop and bought them myself 

:laughing2dw: :laughing2dw:
 

Just as an asides about 5 minutes after her online debacle with the top her bank emailed her pointing out there was suspicious use of her card and did she approve the transactions so she was able to sort it all out and hopefully only one will arrive. Banks get a bad rep but I was actually quite impressed with the way her bank dealt with it.
