First topic message reminder :

Hi guys though we might have a post where we can have a daily chat What do you think?


Today i got the passport forms fill in a total nightmare to do now but I got there, then I had to battle the photos booth and if you make a mistake you lose your £5.00 so have to listen to all the instructions and select the right options, I almost had fun photos instead of ID photos. All we need now is to get someone to sign and stamp the photos and sign the applications forms - then send them off and wait to see if they are ok.

What you been up to.................

Well that is the way to look at it Bazz but I have no choice but the trust the agent I can't manage it from BG and there is nobody to help here. Hopefully Paddy it will all work out, I have a good agent....we have a viewing tomorrow. g

Something for your to ponder over for a few minutes........

Good Morning All ..

Will you pass this test
You are driving down the road in your car on a wild, stormy night, when you pass by a bus stop and you see three people waiting for the bus:
1. An old lady who looks as if she is about to die
2. A very old friend who once saved your life.
3. The perfect partner you have been dreaming about.
Which one would you choose to offer a ride to, knowing that there could only be one passenger in your car?
Think before you continue reading.





This is a moral/ethical dilemma that was once actually used as part of a job application.
You could pick up the old lady, because she is going to die, and thus you should save her first. Or you could take the old friend because he once saved your life, and this would be the perfect chance to pay him back. However, you may never be able to find your perfect mate again
YOU WON'T BELIEVE THIS....................
The candidate who was hired (out of 200 applicants) had no trouble coming up with his answer. He simply answered: 'I would give the car keys to my old friend and let him take the lady to the hospital. I would stay behind and wait for the bus with the partner of my dreams.'
Sometimes, we gain more if we are able to give up our stubborn thought limitations.
Never forget to 'Think Outside of the Box.'
HOWEVER...., The correct answer IMHO is to run the old lady over and put her out of her misery, have sex with the perfect partner on the bonnet of the car, then drive off with the old friend for a few beers.
God, I just love happy endings!

So....did it all turn out well?

Yes, there is quite a range of colour additives you can use....I used some powdered stuff when I did the grouting on my slab work. From memory, I got it from Pracktika...I'll have a dig around later and see if the bag has a name on it.

Ah that's great thanks Bazz.

Well we have laid just over half the patio for the gazebo now and all went well ie no paddy fits from his lordship La .  May do some more later tonight or if not than tomorrow.  Run out of the wire but as we already have a patio on the next part we probably don't need it, just need to put some tiles down and break them up. It does not need a lot of filling now.  Dougie is mixing and tipping and I am smoothing.

Once this lots is concreted we will get some soft sand for mix of the top layer and the powder mix to colour it so should be nice and smooth.  The sand ie ballast we have has too many big stones in it. It is sand from the seaside. I did find some lovely shells in it mind.  It's not a master piece but a good attempt for our first try, nodoubt as the years goes on we will get more experience...

Around the edges I think we will have to add more cement when the boards come off I did bang the cement down but would be surprised if it fill it all so will build up sides and then add some various colour broken tiles as decoration along with some sea shells and stones that I will varnish  - getting real excited about finishing it now.

The wood shed is coming on lovely too filling coloured bottles of water all the time and adding so when all added will post final photo.

If, as you say, you are going to put another (coloured) layer on top, there is no need to have a smooth finish on this level. A rough surface will help the final layer to adhere. Also, don't let it all dry too quickly...a fine misting all over, every now and then will help.

Oh right thanks Bazz will put some water on it now.
