Re: As early retirement gets closer!!

Will do.
It's a long time since I fell off a motorbike, once I learnt that it hurts both you and your pocket.
We are hiring Honda CM200 which are light and small compared with the BMW R1200RT I have here.

Re: As early retirement gets closer!!

Well after 48 hours of the heaters being on the walls have finally dry paint on them.
I aim to put a second coat on tomorrow all being well.
It will have the next 6 weeks to dry out properly as I am off to Thailand to travel around by motorbike and intend to visit Burma, Laos and Cambodia.

The ceiling and the partition wall plaster have dried out well but, the back wall plaster is still a darker colour than the rest. It backs up against the garden wall so does not have a great air flow around it. However with a...

Re: Moving to Ireland

Don't forget to bring your wellies. Funny that when asked most want out of the island of Ireland, north and south for somewhere warmer, and yet there are others who wish to move here. Just goes to show that there are opportunities every where. Whether you hold an Irish passport or not, it will not h...

Re: As early retirement gets closer!!

Well it's all done and the builders are away for Christmas. The final skip is out of the drive and it all looks well. I have started to paint the workshop and hope to have it finished, the tiles on the floor and the worktops and bench installed for the 12th Jan as I then head off to Burma, Cambodia ...

Re: As early retirement gets closer!!

Garage extension is now very nearly finished. All the electrics are now in but one of the lights in the roof space needs a new starter pack as the helper caught it with a drill and damaged it. I now have 16 sockets in the garage and 13 in the workshop. 6 double 6' fluorescent lights on the ceiling a...

Glad to see that you are still around my friend. Still rallying in France these days?
