Well goodness me, it's Phil P! :lol: Welcome Phil.

Now when you say Cornwall, what you really mean is the western province of Devon. :lol: :lol:

What's this flour of which we speak?

If you go direct to Marriage's, you have to bulk-buy, it seems. I like the look of the "Country Fayre" malted brown.....

You can usually buy 16kg or about 25kg sacks. Very high quality flour and it keeps perfectly. I also have a sack of Shipton Mill on the go. That comes in a sack within a box, and I keep it like that.

The BB date on the 16kg one I'm about to open is 1/22 - it has good shelf life, though I never keep it anything like that long.

Good to see you, Phil !

Does lockdown = no haemorrhoids ? (That will get the rest guessing but both you and I know to that which I am referring !)

Hey, Phil, great to see you. Apart from the weird orange text, this is a good place to be, and nobody appropriates your intellectual property. Always a boon, I find.
Your scions are...still atached. I'm hoping they will perk up once the weather improves.

P.S. Now, for Christmas, I would like...

Oh no! It's a great thing and I did it a year ago but I am so short of time. It's all right for you, you've got a new lathe and saw thingy to play with. You'll have nowt to do in a week or so when that garage is finished....

Apart from building a bike shed, building a wood store, digging a footing for a brick and flint wall, breaking up the drive, leveling the site, laying a shingle turning area, building a bin store with associated paving, making a front gate (and one for a farmer who did me a favour), making a huge refectory table and 10 chairs, doing about 15 leaded lights, 3 or 4 side tables, a utility room door, paving the patio, building a brick BBQ and smoker, an oak pergola, and a raised oak pavilion thingy over the pond. Whilst trying to earn a living. I'll leave someone else to run secret santa this year. :)

Pah. Nothing for you.

Bike sheds by the way are the preserve of teenagers. They get behind them.

Looking forward to the refectory table build. Mine is about to be relocated this weekend.

Also looking forward to gate design. If I were to do mine again, given that they are nowhere near the boundary, I would do them at least half a metre higher and probably put the openers underground as the arm type look ugly and struggle in high wind.
