The key to amateur DIY plastering is all about buying good product and even better sandpaper.

On the upside, whilst I crawled under the house I squished a red back before it bit me. And as a side bonus discovered one of the underfloor heating ducts was disconnected. Which I fixed. Solved the plumbing issue without parting with several $100. Could have been worse I guess

I’m nervous as hell watching the Inspiration4 SpaceX launch with an all civilian crew!

My 10yo is having a bad start to the day home schooling. Both our nerves and patience are shot after only 20 minutes. :(

What’s your Lockdown Groundhog Day moment? Mine is waking the teenager, who replies with ‘I’ll be up in a minute …’ <*ffwump*> his head hits pillow amd snoring instantly resumes.

I got a hug from him this morning. Nice gesture. He must really feel guilty.
