Lockdown life

Postby mylesgm » Sat Jul 17, 2021 6:47 pm

Hi All... just thought I'd do a shout out and see how we're all travelling in lockdown. I know it's different for everybody but how about a little share of wins and strategies? A win for me was putting in an outdoor bath (very ghetto) and a firepit, lovely way to spend the evening after the kids finally fall asleep.

Hope you're all doing ok out there.

OK well now I need to come over to your place for an outdoor bath by the fire. Not something I thought I'd be having a hankering for 5 minutes ago, but here we are.

Lockdown life indeed.

Well you're most welcome to come on over post lockdown but let me tell you, it was pretty easy to setup a cheap outdoor bath. $100 for the bath from marketplace. $50 for some parts from bunnings (bathwater piped straight to the stormwater so don't use any shampoo etc while bathing), run the garden hose from the laundry for hotwater and it's all done. And glorious quiet times abound.

Also, when childcare is active I am able to do various tech work which was well worthwhile, 10 JLM BA500 and a couple of LA500s completed for a friend's new studio.

How's everyone else coping?

Yeah, soldering iron is the hot water element.
