Pete decided that he was definitely going to finish grinding the deck out above the bedroom today. However, first it started to chuck it down with rain and then it stopped. Then the old grinder gave up the ghost and headed for the great toolbox in the sky. So off to Screwfix to buy another. He asked for a 110 amp, got home opened it only to discover they had given him a 240 amp. Back to Screwfix, got a 110 amp one and when he got home, lo and behold, it did not have a plug on. By this time the diesel in the van was seriously low and, being a bank holiday, none of the local garages were open. I suppose the fact that he could not get to Screwfix again today means that the steam coming out of him will hopefully have gone down to a gently simmer tomorrow!!!!!!
