    been a loooong day in't shed ....... got all the 'ground level' stuff finished





    and buttoned up








    before turning my attentions to the 'aerial' bits in the ridge of the shed and the light units


    Pleased to say that by half six, I'd got 'em all strung out, wired in and all ready for some leccy ..... my arms are hanging off tonight ....
    all overhead work and me iffy left shoulder has had some serious exercise the last few days ..... after several weeks of nursing it, for it to repair itself, I needed to use it and it had to have it


    Couple of short bits of trunking left to fit, for the outside flood lights, then get them up and wired in, as well and the shed end is finished .... the house end is also gonna be fun, up in a small attic space, python wrestling, to pick up a supply and installing a 2 way switch for the exterior floods.
    gonna be good having lights and power out there to say now't of the exteriors to hand from inside the house .... 'tis 'kin dark out there, in the nights.

    So you can DIY domestic wiring over there , here you would be prosecuted ,locked up ,or a the very least uninsured if anything went wrong .
    Only a licensed electrican can legally do that sort of work here ,even running cat cables requires a cablers license . protected trades ,that includes plumbing .

    any competent person can install - to std - just supposed to have it tested and signed off.

    done all my own for decades and do a tidier job than most leccies ... used to do all my own 3 ph in work ..... very often replacing so say professional crap when it failed/went west

    it's not rocket science after all, as long as you know what you're doing

    Take it as a complement lad some of the work you done metal wise has been fantastic, I be rather handy in the fabrication welding dept but what you do is a level or two above what I would attempt.................................

    Thank you Stock, read in conjunction with that comment, the previous one now reads with a whole lot of difference ....
    I'd guessed you were being complimentary ..... just could not get the slant without the second comment ..... I'm having a senior moment 'praps

    After a lifetime trying to do it right ..... I'd want my arse kicked if I couldn't pull it off ............... now and again

    limited progress today, due to a 07.20 kick off/Clara arrival .... her mummy had an interview this morning, so we had an early start to our day too


    atrocious weather this morning - horizontal rain and wind to blow you off your feet, if you didn't watch it ... cats won't even venture out and I don't blame them


    had an hour putting the flood lights and mounts/enclosures together, for the shed pine ends, when it eased off a tad, plus a major tidy up in me tool box .. like a bomb'd dropped in there .... then the little un returned , so some grand dadding required


    when the posty arrived after lunch, with some glands i'd been waiting for, I escaped for half an hour to finish off me lights. Failed to get any of these glands locally ..... can get bigger ones, but these PG9s (4-8 mm) are unobtainable





    so these are ready to go up in the morning, whilst Clara's in nursery ....





    bit frustrating that Gewiss don't do a black version of the boxes .. they'm gonna have to have a coat of the black stuff


    get these connected and a couple of wires in the junction box, on the wall, beside the drive and I can give it some power with me RS Safe Bloc, at the house end of the 'python', for a test of everything


    then i can turn me attention to getting it into the house ..... by the most favoured method/route, which will obviously have to meet approval from SWMBO .... she's already changed her mind about route/method twice now

    Whilst it weren't chucking it down, thought i'd get a couple of pix of why I am in fear of an imminent bang occurring, in the round and black dept., on the 'Drema ... and why i considered it time/prudent to actively seek and acquire some new bouncy bits














    as said, although there's plenty of tread/rubber on 'em .... it's only a question of time .... and these pix are an average example. Annoying really, as damned fine other-wise


    Can guarantee summat'll let go at the most inopportune moment .............. and I have enough grey hairs already, from my fair share of exploding black things
    If it's got tracks, wheels, t*ts, or an engine, at some point it's gonna give you trouble!!
