    Noel, some T hinges are in the cupboard, waiting to be put on the gate. Many thanks for the advice. I may just leave the others where they are, as it’s such a fiddly job to remove them.

    The man who invented cordless screwdriver/drills was a benefactor to mankind and should be canonised.

      Glad to help. Last year the 12volt Black and Decker I bought with Flybuys years ago gave up so upgraded to a 18 volt Bosh two stager using Airpoints. Was hunting round in the shed and came across my yellow corded two stage drill the Bunny Rigold use to promote. Time has sure improved things.

        I was surprised that the old-fashioned ‘eggbeater’ drills are still made. I saw them in Mitre 10.

        I had a little one that cost about $10 from Countdown, it went for years before the battery couldn’t recharge itself properly. I loved it, it was light, easy to use and did a lot of work before it died.

    A beautiful pheasant walked across the road today. it’s not uncommon to see one, but it’s still a lovely sight.

    I saw a pook wandering over a pile of gravel. looking bemused.
