Why not do as I did and get one off Ebay and its free delivery on most, check it out....https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2380057.m570.l1313.TR11.TRC1.A0.H0.Xwooden+sheds.TRS0&_nkw=wooden+sheds&_sacat=0

Ta for the link Bandi but they're cheaper from two or three specialist Shed/Outhouse suppliers up here. As I'm not desperate I'll wait for them to open up and put a couple of quid into local small businesses.

Just been through the interminable re-registration for a Government Gateway ID so I can apply for the self employed scheme.
Applications open from midday on the 14th if anyone else wants to be on the front of the avalanche.

Thanks Rob - NOT!

God, that film was like 'nazi informats' with police state overtones. I am going to have nightmares again tonight, as its getting too near the truth.

Now that lockdown is easing in England, lockdown police powers should be reduced ASAP, and let them go after real criminals, instead of harassing joe public.

I've found a little time to watch some broadcast TV, and catch up on movies that I have long wanted to watch, but never had the time. Saved me from shelling out for the Blu-ray.

I saw Cowboys and Aliens the other the day, which was a bit of popcorn tosh, which not even Harrison Ford could elevate.
Watched The Equalizer last night. Trashed the legacy of the brilliant TV series. If Denzel wanted to make a John Wick movie, he should have called it John Wick. Would have been a fun movie if it weren't for the name.

Watched Cowboys and Aliens, absolutely fantastic, 007 and Han Solo in the one film, great (tick box 1). Cowboy with alien packing weapon blasting the ell out of everyone (tick box 2), undercover alien with boobs, yes (tick box 3 and 4) , special effects out of this world (tick box 5). Real funny banter throughout (tick box 6), acting really up there (tick box 7). Yep it ticked all the boxes.

Yes, this film let me forget covid 19 for two hours..and that's what counted, thank goodness

In that category I finally caught up with Kingsman.
Watched the beginning on a flight 2/3 years ago and switched off in disgust at all the bleeped out swearing.

Really enjoyed it. Well tongue in cheek.
Taron Egerton's accent, this from a native Londoner, was bang on and the finale actually had me chuckling out loud.

I'm told the second one is not very good but I'll still give it a go.
