No problem at all.

Although I am really into Lego Technic at the moment, I seem to be viewing their trains a little too often.

My son is kind of like me when it comes to music. He likes a wide range of artists from 80's rock on up to today's hip hop. So who knows. Whatever it is, it's going to sound great.

Minor kitchen renovations underway. What fun :)

This follows on from the works on the hot water service/system. You remember <-
The air conditioning is getting renovated too next week.

ImageImage

Did I mention we swapped our bathroom shower screens out for new the frameless style too?

Having fun in a couple of ways :D

Firstly the Lego train is great fun to build. I am a Technic fan and still undecided if I will venture further in the Lego train world.

Here’s a speed build of my set

Image Image

Oh, and the air conditioning works continue and here's a picture of the old and new valves we're replacing. On the left is the original and plastic model where 'motors' have failed and just could have gone out of round shape over the years. The new parts are of metal construction and more rigid. Only problem with the works is that we are cutting 4 holes in the plasterboard ceiling to access these more easily which means dust and more dust then plastering and painting and soon I hope.

Apologies for the cheap and nasty shots taken by my mobile. I am still learning to drive it :smirk:

Agreed. A real pain but we must do it mustn't we.
Here we changed cupboard doors to roll out drawers and that is so much better all 'round. Only trouble is, we now see some panels that appear faded and that makes the job not quite right.

I guess we'll get the cabinet maker back for a look and ask he quote. Shouldn't be much as we won't need change appliances, sinks or bench-top. Still I cross my fingers :)

The wife and I road in a charity ride yesterday for a very close friend of mine who was diagnosed with stage four cancer at 45.









Beautiful day, awesome turnout for a great cause.

Feeling for you and your very close friend. Too young at 45.

Nice pictures of the event. How many motorcycles were there?

I may be in the market for a new bike soon... Although the dirt bike is good exercise it doesn't really provide much cardio. It's been so long I'm not even sure what's a good brand these days, I've never even heard of Orange bikes!

Handmade British bikes. They have started setting in the US and Canada. Simple pivot design, high quality and built to last.

I'd quite like to get into mountain biking.. we hired some bikes on holiday a few months back and it was great fun, though having not ridden a bike for about 15 years I did nearly kill myself.

Where do you find routes etc you can ride? I'm in Derbyshire, I have the whole of the Peak District on my doorstep.

Ideally would need a bike that could collapse into a hatchback also, which might be tricky.

I replaced the factory seats with new Mustang vintage wide solo and pillion seats. Hopefully this helps/fixes the issues with sore ass after 100+ mile straight rides.

That pillion seat looks like you'll slide right off the back.

I had it over three years. They take a kicking and I wanted something a little more playful.

Agreed :up:

Bikes today look so different to those of a few years ago. This 350cc 4 cylinder was always a favourite of mine and I regret not owning one in the day :(
