Grabbing a few days in Devon, the hotel upgraded us to a three bedroom suite and gave us a discount because the room we we meant to have was being refurbished and wasn't quite finished in time. Blowing a gale but the outdoor pool is heated to 29 and the indoor sauna and Jacuzzi are fab.

My hard as nails, never shows any emotions, eldest daughter gave me a hug today, first one in years, as we said goodbye as she started university today.

She even had a tear in her eye, my wife had loads.

She'll be hugging you lots more over the next three years as soon as she realises how little cash she has left...

Very good Mr Rules. The Monkey is 21 now, graduated this year and got a full time job earlier in the summer. I was chuffed to bits a few months ago when she told me I could stop the monthly standing order I'd been paying into her account for the duration of her studies. I can put that cash towards toys now. Yay.

The front garden at Tapley Towers is in a bit of a state. The drive needed re-tarmacing so I've taken the opportunity to have the water mains pipe renewed. The old pipe has clearly been getting more and more clogged over the years.
The new pipe was connected today and what a difference to the pressure it has made. Such a small thing but it's brought a huge smile to my face.

nice one John

we had all the mains flushed last year and since then the pressure has been a nightmare as it now runs normal then all of a sudden you get a burst of pressure which usually results in me getting soaked... lol

best water pressure i have ever had the misfortune of dealing with is in Lower Largo, when fitting a washing machine you have to install a ballafix and set it to almost fully off. turning a garden hose on results in 20ft fountain.. lol

You can get pressure reducer valve to reduce incoming pressure and maintain a constant pressure ( mount near to stop tap ), our whole house has hot and cold water ( pressurised hot water tank) at 3 bar ( 45 psi ) which is ideal and means a power shower does not need a pump.

Thank goodness houses have been fitted with plastic water pipes from water company stop tap to house for quite a while now, they don't corrode and block up and are flexible enough that they don't crack with soil movement - progress......

I had to fit a reducer to our villa in Turkey. The mains pressure was so high that it hurt if you put your hand under the cold tap when it was fully open. The reducer brought the pressure down to a more reasonable level.

Have to go to Aberystwyth tomorrow to deliver my little portable studio to a friend for repair. Weather forecast gives wall to wall sunshine and 17C so I think that means I'll be going on the bike then.
