Mum likes to do scrapbook-cum-quotation things with quotes she gets out of her sf novels and bits of ephemera she picks up from all over. Here's one where she repurposed one of @daedalus 's stickers.

Oops, I forgot to have breakfast and now I have to head into meetings.

there's also a few ceremonies where the warrior about to be sacrificed spends an entire year living in luxury, then gets married to four women, drops his garmets, picks up a weapon, and rushes into ritual battle with priests who throw him into a fire.

I guess my teachers did well instilling a strong safety ethos in me during highschool and uni. Power tools, all things sharp, and large voltage/amps all get *lots* of respect from me.

I did learn a couple of tips for jigs to make the whole thing go much easier, though. And I should probably switch my technique to use a guide sled instead of hand use. Careful as I am, I've never been entirely comfortable with it. Power tools are scary.

I'm using leftover timber from the garage build, and unfortunately don't have enough termiblue treated stuff to do bit of the frame that'll rest on the bricks.

I think the chicken run foundations are basically sorted. A bit of fine tuning the levels once I start framing things up.

My in-laws have given us a new Aldi fire pit for some ungodly reason.

The new wire mesh for the chook run will cost over $100. That's a lot of eggs they'd better lay.

Yep. System still working well past the time when it would normally have shit itself. :awesome: :borglove:
