I find plastering to be a bit of a beach, Bluey - and because of lockdown I can't get a pier review!
You need a stern talking to treadi. No moor of that now, we don't want to go overboard do we?

Guaranteed to last...................at least until Completion.
Well that all depends on yer post code area .....it's probably been marketed as being " a truly outstanding example of retro design and construction features which only the most discerning buyer will appreciate " by now

They are like rising damp but the new ones aren't a patch on them...

When I was putting lining paper up in my front room a few years ago, I was aghast to have one section of paper in a corner at the top of the wall peel away, taking a large amount of plaster with it... plaster? No, it was filler which I'd layered on to dress out a rough patch I hadn't replastered very well when I first bought the house. Probably run out of plaster I guess and good enough for several layers of paint but not for soaking with wallpaper paste. Not the only bit of self-bodging I've had to redo!

And on that note, one feels this may prove essential for the international mega stars amongst us, such as moi for example, and Bluey herself no less, given you doesn't have to travel far after all, only down the road, to collect it........one hopes your specification will include a level and standard which will meet with the approval of the New World Order...

I would have thought a gallon of petrol and a match would be a cost effective way to ensure one's yacht is Covid free!

It varies according to circumstance but the danger time has passed now so we can relax.

The 2 up-2 down terrace that Dad bought for £145 when he left the navy in 1954 sold for £85,000 a couple of years ago as an outstanding example of retro design.

I saw something very odd in the sky this morning from around 8am. It was circular and a very bright white. It hung around for several hours moving very slowly westwards until a veil of cirrus obscured it from view. I'm sure I remember it from somewhere, tsk, it'll come back to me...
