I bought a paddling pool! And some school shorts and socks. Yay! Except I managed to get them delivered to the old flat. And I ordered the school shorts in the wrong colour. And possibly the wrong size as I’ve just remembered he takes a size smaller.

Reminds of this place - https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Restauran ... gland.html

I spent many a Saturday in here as a child. With all the wonderful drinks.

D&B and sarsaparilla remind me of home..

Yes. From a town called Rawtenstall, in the Rossendale Valley, just near Accrington.

I love my 501s. There is a shop that sells 'vintage' jeans. I get most of my 501s from there.

I’ve only worn 501s for years now. As a kid and young adult they were so aspirational and unaffordable that when I could afford them I just stuck, despite the fact that on the jeans pricing spectrum they’re definitely in the bottom quartile.

Yeah, I moved away from them and now I don't know why I did that. I was having a look at Hebtroco but ASOS 501 was an easier search.

That's what I found with 501s. I found Wranglers were much better for me.

Now that I'm old and don't give two tuppeny turds about brands, I seem to have ended up mostly wearing M&S jeans, but that's partly because Mrs. W usually buys my clobber for me.

I'm planning on converting my loft eventually... I've only been talking about it for ten years or so.

But anyway, one of these would be a no brainer.

I got the B&D one as I already have a drill from the same battery line. If I keep escalating my woodworking at the same speed that I have over the last 2 months though, I might have to upgrade.

I was pretty chuffed at having re-painted the inside of the garage door. But I had to look up what an impact driver is, so I guess I have to hand this in.

I've got that 18v set. It's fucking brilliant.

I also now have a reciprocating saw, circular saw, angle grinder and tyre inflator. I think I want an orbital sander next. Or maybe the chainsaw even though I already have a Bosch one.

A second hand but really good condition trampoline.

The unforgiving placement on the gravel is (probably) temporary. Although I think it's a good way to deter them wrecking the side netting and falling out.

Lady T wants to get rid of all the stones and lay some artificial grass. It's probably a good idea as it'd create a level space for the kids play equipment.

I am glad you are still optimistic - thinking that "hey, kids, if these things happen, you'll really get hurt!" will be a deterrent.

Definitely going with Lady T, there (though if it were the UK I'd be slightly despairing at all the artificial grass that I see around the place - bit different where nature hides venomous things). At some point they might hit the gravel, and you won't take any pleasure in any warnings being right.

haha, I was slightly joking but also, injuries build character (again, slightly joking)

I'm not a massive fan or artificial grass either, but we've got a fair bit of real grass already although it's not especially flat, and even a very slight gradient is quickly revealed when a big-ish trampoline is plonked down on top.

We also bought some second hand monkey bars, but they will need fixing for stability. There's going to be a lot for kids to do in our yard, which will make it even more irritating when they stay inside watching telly all day >:( .
