    I will be replacing a handrail post and handrail sometime before January 9th. Also, laying down some anti slip roll on the drive as it can be dangerous due to the slope. My wife fell down a couple of times and keeps moaning about it. Don't intend to start until the end of the week though.

    srw It's a bit more complicated than that...

    Yeah, we could do with a deep clean of the house, and there's some gutters that need cleaning.

    When are you available?

    Gutted the garage yesterday, so feel quite good about that. I do have a bit of garden that's far too wet and I'm planning on just digging it up and chippi g it. Only a 50 50 chance that gets dine on this holiday.:becool:

    Having just finished a a 30Msq house extension along with a full new kitchen, block paving down the side of the house, decking all across the back of the house, a cupboard move, a boiler move & a chop all plaster off, board out & skim along with new floor of a bedroom I don't want to do anything else now for months possibly years, but the wife has other ideas.

    I need a toilet roll holder fitting @gavroche. Could you fit it in on the way back from @vickster's? Merci.

    Clear out the garage, clear out a couple of bedrooms too if I can.

    Anyone want some non functioning ovens for Christmas?

    Clinic stripped out yesterday, two coats on ceiling this morning, first coat going on walls now. I have been told that I am having tomorrow off, we will see. After that who knows, maybe my office, maybe the garage.

    Erm well the extension I suppose really was only 3x6m so 18Msq (outside measurement) but all the existing dining room & kitchen was affected & now the room is 5x6. 20 or even 10 years ago it would have been a breeze, but it was a struggle this time, I don't feel I'm getting old until I try to do something I would have easily done sometime ago.

    Well, I have to go into work over Xmas, so I am hoping there is actually some work to do.

    Otherwise, I can see me spending most of the office hours, talking to you lot :whistle:
