    Decent Fence Paint - That’s not like water

    Dulux ultimate wood stain is the best stuff you can buy. It comes with a 10 year guarantee but its not cheap at £110 for 5 litres

    They DO talk to each other.

    I've had my license for over 2 years now. I went to the doctors a few weeks ago and west mercia haven't notified by gp about anything.

    Car puncture repair kits?

    The dynaplugs look brilliant. I've just ordered some for the gloove box. I'm fed up of getting a puncture from screws on site

    looking for a new cordless/ battery sds drill

    I use an 18v Makita with no problems, but I also have 15 batteries. Hilti is as good as it gets so maybe look into getting your batteries refurbished. Not sure if they can be changed to lithium ion but might be worth inquiring about.

    New kitchen ???.

    Kitchens tend to last longer when they have been fitted correctly. Howdens aren't too bad for the price.

    New kitchen

    That's extremely poor service. Sounds like the subbies have got annoyed with the job and disappeared hoping someone else will finish it.

    Aldi

    I've been working on the construction and refurbishment of Aldi stores for the past 15 years. I've been shopping there about 10 times, and if I do I'm very careful about what I buy.

    School closures

    We haven't had a massive amount of snow here but I decided to stay at home today as my work is a 90 mile commute to Reading at the moment. I made sure the wife made it to work safely and i'm now sat infront of the fire with the pets. I'll have to try and make it in over the weekend though. No work no pay.

    drill bits

    For something like a granite worktop, in my experience, a spear bit would not work. Take a look at the diamond tipped drill bits. They can be used at high speed but need to be cooled with water. I fill a spray bottle with water to constantly clear the cut and cool the bit.

    Wedding present

    When I got married a mate added a cheque with the card but didn't sign it.

    What’s for Christmas?

    I have asked for a makita heated jacket. Should keep toasty out on the scaffold

    Mates Rates

    Multi skilled builder here, and I find a lot of 'mates' don't just want to pay less, but want someone they can trust. I understand the trust part as it can be a bit of a jungle out there. I do always charge though as I'm not a charity. There's only one mate that gets work for free as I know the feeling is mutual.
