    Different scale, I have just bought a mini sewing machine for £16.50. I have made some curtains for my campervan. Manly, ain't I.

    Well, I do actually, your comment was very hurtful and I am going to have to buff my nails now, it is the one thing that will cheer me up.

    As far from the sea as we could be, except when we can actually get in it.

    Keep your eyes open for the sewing accessories in Aldi and Lidl
    I rescued a 60s Singer electric m/c at th start of the lockdowns and it cost me a couple of quid for a new capacitor to get it going again. I've sewn more than 30 different sails and stuff for the model boats with it.
    Always on the lookout for a bargain, I've figured out that Wilco's knitting needles are a cheap source of aluminium rod for spars etc. Their plain nail varnish is great for sealing knots. The hook and eye (bra hooks,lads ��) are a damn sight cheaper than the same thing sold as sail hooks.

    When my wife died I passed her sewing machine on to our daughter.
    Like I was never going to need it.

    It took two years.
    I have a nice sewing machine now with cool gadgets.
    Helium, because I'm worth it.
    Waterboarding at Guantanamo Bay sounded like a radical holiday opportunity until I looked it up.

    I made a wall mounted sundial this afternoon, from a piece of slate and some copper pipe.
    Figured that, with possible power cuts on the horizon, it might be worth getting prepared

    I`ve just bought another business.
    Offered both staff jobs on existing terms and conditions, +10% pay bump.
    One is after 20%.
    I thought he was on a decent screw before I offered the 10%.

    Buyers remorse setting in already.
