In My Life

Recent episodes of ‘devils own luck’ with newly purchased electrical appliances struck again this morning when a drill driver (purchased only an hour earlier) proved faulty. Despite the tool’s motor working as designed, frustratingly the bit chuck’s jaws were less reticent to function as planned (ie not tightening or slackening). This episode subsequently derailing plans…

What Would Terry Thomas Say?

I spend an hour or so yesterday evening attempting to develop a new idea for next weeks online quiz night with the lads.
