Oh heck........ :unsure:  Should I get some valium, just in case, or will pie and chips do instead plum? :blink:
Cheese makes everything better.

I found that if I used all the door draught-excluder strips as instructed the door just wouldn't shut properly  :lol: so guess what I did - Ho Hum!

 :)

The instructions for mine didn't even mention the existence of the draught-excluder strips, just included them in with the other bits and pieces and left me to work out what they were for, and how to fit them (hence the problem!!)  :ohmy:  :lol:

Hope Plum is having a better afternoon and hasn't stripped her nuts (or anyone elses!)  ;)
Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older

boo hooo hoooooo waaaaaah!

what a palaver! My thumbs hurt so much from pushing (more accurately attempting to push) the strips in around the polycarbon. oww woow oww.

OH in a terrible temper too, just what I need

so, have come in for a cuppa and little nap now. Too tired to continue, and that's when the big mistakes happen. looking good tho - just skylight and door to do, and I can construct them this evening in the garage, ready to go on tomorrow.

ICE - get a steady supply of chips n things, and a calm-tempered OH. Could really do with a tea-elf too.
small, Welsh and almost certainly bonkers, but can be tamed with Talisker, if required

Well I'm very happy with mine.  Did this all by myself. :)  Ignore the date, can't be bothered to work out how to change it.
