    Taking pleasure in causing people to leave a previously productive discussion is pretty disgusting behaviour and not something I am happy to see here. Sigh.

    David, it’s so lovely to hear from you! Can I say the bits I can see in the photos look AMAZING!

    My Dad built our family home, over many years while working fulltime and while Mum was raising a tribe of kids.

    As a builder he was self-taught, and every nook and cranny of that house was immaculately crafted and a joy to look at; we learned not to notice the bits he hadn’t done yet.

    My sister tells the story of him finishing a built-in bookcase and finding it was slightly out of square. He smashed it apart in silent rage, then carefully put it together exactly right.

    I understand your dedication, and applaud you.

    fresh elderflower water. Less – or no – sugar and just as fragrant. Pick half a dozen or so heads of elderflower in the morning, put in large jug with a litre of just-boiled water and some maple syrup or raw honey (or not – doesn’t need sweetening) and lemon or lime juice. Cover and leave to sit on the bench covered for an hour or two, then add ice and enough cold water to make 2 litres. Keep in the fridge and drink undiluted.

    Wow, that sounds GREAT!

    there is basically no cost when volunteers are involved.

    Also, professional firefighters have a lot of time between callouts, since fires happen at unpredictable intervals. It's great that they can assist with other emergencies.
