Boiling water, after having spent an hour removing elderberries from their stalks with a fork.  Homebrew time again  :D

Bubble, bubble, toil and trouble... Go easy on the eye of newt, Dave.

Meanwhile, I am inhaling the aroma of soda bread baking and thinking gourmandizing thoughts.
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.

Sitting out the back of my local with a beer for the first time in erm, 5 months is it?
To be honest, the beer is not great.   :-\
Don't think I'll be back for a while.

Not sleeping. Not feeling sleepy either.

Watching some builders on the road taking a wall down using some vibrating tool with no ear protection and sighing.
Do not clench. It only makes it worse.

Gathering strength before attacking lunch prep. Lots of chopping to do.

Before that, holding a straight piece of wood against the wall in the hall and looking ruefully at the bulges and hollows.  Some jobs just shouldn't be started.  I really wanted to make a zither. :(

Imagine my reaction when walking out of Ely railway station to see a bloke in a hole, with a small petrol powered engine next to him, and another bloke bending over filling it with petrol with a fag in his mouth whilst it was still running!

Unfortunately I didn't have my camera with me

I believe that's how SIL burned her boat down.   :-\

Straight edge or plasterers scrim.

EDIT read why...steam the wood to the shape of the wall.

They're all men, aren't they?

This is why they'll go extinct and females will reproduce parthenogenically. Eventually. My money in on next Wednesday.

Later on, a bloke turned up with a digger (I refuse to use the brand name, the manky Tory apologists). Said digger was being operated over the heads of two other builders. Nary a hard hat in sight.
Oh and when they reversed the truck towards the rest of the wall to receive the digging debris, they hit the wall, despite being guided in.  :facepalm:
