Two very good purchases! :)

Persevere with the key; it takes some getting used to (sorry, you may already be familiar with keys). Luckily, my wife is quite happy to go through it :)

Bought on your recommendation good sir. Hopefully I can study it this winter and put it to good use come the spring

Sorry, I don´t understand what you mean. o_O "View the shovel in year"?

Sorry - I mean MY experience of more modern made multi joint Shovels have been slightly disappointing as they tend to not 'lock-up' as well as some of the WWII designed stuff - which admittedly tends to be heavier but I do think digging with one isn't the shovel equivalent of Russian Roulette.

Locking mechanism for the Fiskars shovel seems pretty sturdy. I doubt my shovel will see too much use. It´s just a tool I feel is good to have, just in case.

As someone who teaches vehicle recovery skills, I find all folding shovels too short. When you need to dig the sand from under a bellied 110 in the desert you want the old military rigid long handled shovel. But, of course, different needs will require different solutions :)

I got loads a while back, then they didnt have them for months

managed to find little sachets of honey to in B&M

the jam is pure sugar, so lasts for years past its use by date....
B & M did have 8 packs of UHT type milk portions so I got 2 of those for the Mem' who doesnt like the powered stuff or evap'.

I had to resort to the Internet to get individual teabags in foil rather than paper packets. When herself was spending a lot of time in hotels for work I was knee deep in this sort of stuff. I've even had to buy shower caps for going over loaf tins to keep the draughts off them during rising!

What has the world become when a britt makes tea out of teabags nstead of loose tea?!
Why teabags, it´s no more difficult to use loose tea. And the quality is much better. That´s why I nowadays buy whole coffee beans and grind them myself.

Weirdly, although I don't mind a hint of hexy or even petrol in my tea I've never cared for tea from a flask. This from a man who recently policed up all his flasks and discovered he had enough to make quite a large abstract sculpture. Flasks I mainly use for soup and runny foods like stew or beans. And if you're beans ain't runny enough, wel. You're just not adding enough butter...

To restore, a pretty much unused Disston D-8 22 inch 10 TPI. saw Just need to take the handle off and soak in mild acid to dissolve the red stuff. The teeth don't evenneddtouchi gu came in a niceuk made case. Mike (Colne Tools) threw in the small tube cutter in free.

I think I got the teabags from Single Portions, if it the one who sells single items rather than boxes full. If not i certainly looked at their site.

Got a tray of single portion Duerrs honey from Home Bargains, no jam there either. £1.49 for 16.
