You're looking at it wrong.  For nearly 3 months you have can have a completely guilt free hour or two in the pub every Saturday while MrsBasil gets her jollies enjoying the sparkly frocks, dansy-dansy and, if MrsLurker is any guide,  the fit young men as well.  :)

Me? I get to have some uninterrupted quality time at my building board when I am expected to be totally quiet*.  Thank $deity for "Strictly" say I.

Lurk.

*There's nothing** worse than being asked to answer some question of great domestic moment while you are trying to carry out some delicate balsa or tissue related operation when totally focused concentration is required so knowing that such questions are guaranteed not to be forthcoming for up to 2 hours is utter bliss.

**Obv. there are things far, far worse but when one is trying not to stuff up a delicate build step one's sense of perspective is a little ... skewed. :)

Been trying to explain to MrsT why I really and truly need a new router when I already have three.  "Half-inch collet" doesn't seem to convince.
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.

Has se perhaps suggested that you get rid of one or more of your existing collection to make room for a new router?

Feeling pleased after fixing the sticking shed door, and the sticking side gate (both torrential rainfall related issues), rescuing a Robin from the shed, clearing the shed gutter, securing the blue tit nesting box into the tree, catching the mouse the cat had brought in, setting up the bird feeders for the winter and using the acrylic paint my wife brought home from school to paint the parts of my numberplate screws that were in the black but were themselves white and yellow. Oh, and laying the fire for this evening, then making BLT’s for lunch.  O:-)

Waiting for post-cycling rigor mortis to set in. Well, about to close down this box and hobble downstairs for preprandial amuse-gueules. Rigor can set in just as well down there.

Setting mousetraps in the lounge and kitchen. I caught one mouse in the kitchen this morning. Just seen another in the lounge, don’t know how long it’s been in here. Wish the damned cat would eat them  >:(

Ah ha! Caught it  :D. Humanely of course. Off to the (neighbours) garden with it  8) 8)

Actually I think this one is a shrew.
