We spent the weekend in Cornwall, went to Chapel Porth beach on Friday. It was wet, but that had not put the tourists off.
And I managed to put the land rover in the garage by taking the hood and sticks off.
He’s taken to attacking his tail.
Today Hannah and I spent the day in the garden, we put down stones at the base of the wall. Dug one potato plant up because all the flowers where gone. We had a number of potatoes out of that plant. Put up battens in the utility room for two kitchen cabinets that I will put up as soon as I have the proper fixings.
Saw that cricket on our back door. Hannah spotted it, so thought I’d get a picture. It was about 15mm or so long in the body.
I did my first TIG welding on Saturday, I welded some of the joints the door bottoms that I felt could do with sticking together. I don’t think I did too badly for my first attempt, though it’s not like it was aluminium but it was is pretty thin steel all the same. Honestly? Yes I did melt some big holes..
I popped down to Portsmouth to bring my new ladders back. The soft top did flap a little coming back up the motor way.
Finished putting the last coat of white paint onto the fourth wheel. With that done and being aware that the paint tin lid was no longer sealing, I chose to try to use up the last of the paint on the land rover. I now have white bumper and a variety of other white patches which hopefully will not rust!
