    A bit blowy today but made for a pleasant walk nonetheless.

    Looks a nice area.

    My drones have been grounded for the last few days due to the winds but it's looking good for bank holiday :)

    A shotgun could be described as a useful social distancing aid though ... :heyhey:

    Why do I even think I want this? I've even googled the lighting kit for it and can see my own seat on the picture.

    Must be lockdown monotony kicking in :)

    Yes I can see what you mean.
    Perhaps if you ordered a blue one you’d like it more.:love:

    The blue one is much smaller so only has a third of the bricks and includes 20,000 seats that you can't fill :)

    I have been tempted. I would be disappointed if I couldn't somehow put myself on my seat though.

    A very mundane brighter side of lock down I have never had such beautiful finger nails!

    I usually cut them super short for school (children are disgusting...)

    But now I have grown them long and painted them with a clear shine!

    I looks fancy!

    I can sort of second that. The last ten years of my working life was in a school. You won't believe the things I dragged out of floppy disk drives !!! Was I ever glad when those things disappeared. (We started building our own computers then, much cheaper.)

    Of course I hadn't anticipated that the things would move on to CDROM/DVD drives then !!!! So I resorted to an old Marine Engineer's saying: 'Bypass it or blank it off.'

    Out they came and blanking plates 'glued' in. (A large rectangular hole would have been far too tempting ... :eek: )

    I did similar but with my facial hair, I don't look fancy :haw:

    On a brighter note today I finally beat my target of a 20 minute 5k, so rather happy with myself :D

    I'm on week 2 of my couch to 5k and enjoying it!

    Not looking forward to next week - it takes a massive jump up!

    Just take your time, remember it's time spent rather than speed/distance at this point.

    My partner finished on Wednesday, we then did a 15k hike to celebrate! She's still really enjoying it.

    Having tried a 5 pint box of Grayling from Izaak Walton Brewhouse last week I’ve just collected 2 boxes of Goldie and 1 box of Zonker to try.

    My kitchen table now looks like a mini beer festival :)

    Let's see, a 5 pint box or a 15k hike.

    (Sorry @tek-monkey , it's a one horse race ..... :P)
