    FWIW I have a weekend break coming up in Scotland specifically to go on a "safari" to witness the rut. I'll be packing a long lens. 😉
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    Excellent, seeing proper wild deer, rather than the glorified pets in the parks would be very cool. I look forward to seeing the pictures.

    ...It hurts quite a bit, but less than yesterday, so no real harm done I reckon. Didn't stop me riding either...

    Did you read that Stevo?

    You looking at me? You looking at me! Dear oh deer.

    Back in the actual (car chat free) world, day 2 of assisting v good trades bloke means I now have a complete new and robust and leakproof garage roof. Job done, tick that off the (long) list.

    Woodburner fired up tonight, bucket of timbers offcuts to use, actually quite nice feeling warmed air circulating at zero additional pence per kWh.

    To be fair to Stevo, he's knacked his back. He did his best to ride through his knacked leg, but backs are a different kettle of fish.

    I winced at my wrist earlier, Mrs B³ asked if it was a whanking injury. 🙄

    New place is a mix of leccy radiators, storage heaters (will be swapped out) and a big fcuk off woodburner. What do you feed these things? Bear in mind I have no outdoor space down there to season wood myself. Presume I have to buy kiln dried wood. Or are the composite log things any good.

    Yep, but as H3 says, backs are a bit different. Meds seem to be helping helping for now and I've got my referral from the GP.

    As well as the physio exercises (which was the same as the pilates classes I was going to anyway) I found running helped with my back.
    It just fuxxed my achilles and knee instead :neutral:

    Running? Chance would be a fine thing...

    I suppose the riposte to that is that now you're injured, can she help you out? :)

    Burn the witches.

    Alt, do some research on local firewood suppliers. Doesn't have to be kiln dried, if supplier has aged the wood naturally so down below the ~20% moisture content then all good. But v dependent on quality/honesty of supplier. I took a load in couple weeks back, reading at 15-16% so fine to use now, though stacked for later. See Amazon or Screwfix et al for moisture meters, the Azuno is fine.

    No knowledge of artificial composite look a likey. @haydenm of this parish could be a good source of info on things timber related

    Cheers 'loon. Will look for a supplier down there, might be cheaper than up here. I think I can fit a m³ in the house easily enough.

    I think hayden is just fluent in tree, and getting punters to invest in trees.

    Yep, not wood for log burners and East Dumfriesshire is a long way to come for wood.

    Fire season nearly done for us, although there are a few piles of stuff out in the paddock which will get torched soon. I'm pleased we got through this winter without buying in any firewood too. Bought a load last year which was a bit variable grade, but it's at least lasted two winters. We've a fair bit of suitable stuff just laying about the place, just need to man up and get the chainsaws out over summer and get it collected.

    Slack day of bike disassembly. No buyers for the complete thing, will see if I can flog off the components instead. Usually more lucrative, but a lot more hassle.

    We just get the firewood man to deliver a whole load ready to lob in the stove.

    i think we used those compressed things a few times but as I can't remember rightly they can't have been that magnificent
