    Yesh, I'm fond of a well-kept 'tuft' myself...

    Nice one though Roy, seems like a nice space to relax and chill out in, which is what it's all about!

    Yesterday visited Maldon on the Blackwater estuary. Had lunch in a quiet little bistro we discovered there last year, and enjoyed a couple of Peroni beers sat outside in the shade.

    Visited some charity shops: one had an unbelievably good selection of LPs in very good condition and at a price, both of which put the local boot sales to shame.

    Then home for a massive salad, pain paysan and some more Peroni.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    Pissing down here today, so we went to our local antiques centre, just outside Wrexham town centre, where we're just back from: http://www.bryn-y-grog.com/ we went to collect a piece of hardwood, to go underneath our new kitchen/back door (between the door and the step) and returned home with that, plus 32 used LPs (mostly classical), all in very good condition!

    That's how you do it Barry!

    We've also spied a rather nice solid (medium oak) Victorian folding table, which we'll probably get for our new kitchen. Just need to take some measurements first! Will list the LPs in the classical section later.

    Had an almighty downpour here just over an hour ago. It lasted less than ten minutes, but the roads were awash with some proper flooding here and there and when I got back, it had made a right old mess of my cement work! Never mind, I'll just pull out the top five mil or so and go over that again.

    Main system: MMs/ADCs/Low output MC's/One rare Japanese SUT/One scarce British phono stage/various tonearms/hefty Japanese DD TT and hefty Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT. 4 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer.

    Yep, just had an almighty downpour here as well.

    I remember when I helped my late father build his garage, we had dug out and prepared the foundations and had mixed the concrete and laid a beautiful flat surface. Then the rain came, causing the chippings to rise to the surface and spoiling the nice smooth finish to the concrete.

    Yes - of course I did.

    Some 'girly' stuff: Donna Summer, Randy Crawford, some not-so-girly Joan Armatrading and Sandy Denny. Some Lonnie Donegan, some John Handy and a bit of Bartok.

    Well done! Lonnie Donegan though... Very much 'of its time'...

    You're on yer own there! Did you not grab some Val Doonican, too?
