dont strictly know where to post this but....

 

i was asked to clear out gutters ...clean gutters/facia....and ....the worst...de weed...driveway....:eek:

 

i wasnt so worried about clearing out the gutters....we all done that....glovies on and off we go...hey but ...i got my sh itty clothes on....

 

then cleaning the facia/gutters...hmmm not so keen but several way to do that...as there was a defo dodgy bit over the p0rch roof banana and his trolley came out and as there was no ...i repeat..no..:eek::eek::eek: outside tap i used my hard won pure to clean that and carried on til all 18 litres was gone..

 

i was only reluctant to do it all wfp as it would drip all over the windows and they were not on my jobs list...

 

anyway ...it the time honoured old fashioned way i got stuck in up close and personal...

 

next ....the feared driveway de weed..

 

its a pain weeding ...i have tried many different ways....

 

so out comes my new petrol strimmer and off i go...bloomin bump line feed my ar se....i cant get it to bump feed the line at all.....i had one years ago ...that worked great...but many a one since...havent worked...

 

so gave up on that...although to be fair...it would have been great if it had bump fed the line out...

 

next.....my weed burner...i will burn the little sods....hmmm...well the piezo type lighter is great...always works first time...til now of course..well i dont smoke so why would i carry a lighter...so that was out of the window...
