    Hounds, work, deal with the shit from SIL as they try and grab everything from the MILs house whilst she is still in it๐Ÿคฌ

    Run and a few beers later with pals, I imagine it will be a rather short and slow shuffle

    Morning Vandals

    Activities for the DW's today so i'm playing Dad's taxi and trying to square a circle or circle a square. One of the two.
    Cows are gone so maybe adventure action later for Beans and I.

    Looks like another roller sesh but at least it won't be as boring as yesterday's TdF stage.
    Can't see Cav winning one.
    Pyrenees today. Maybe some action. Why another downhill before a finish?. I dunno.

    Morning folks,

    Break in the work proceedings. Fencing continues - silly cow next door came knocking complaining that dancing bloke had taken some shrubs out from her side while doing the fence. We pointed out that the fence was now a little way onto our property (as we didn't want to put anything right next to her oil tank) so anything that had been taken out was on our side and that she'd just got a bit of extra land. Some people...

    She's not fussed about that and we're happy with it, it's more about the plants that apparently gave her 'privacy' - if she happened to be standing on the steps on her side and we happened to in a partivular spot in our garden at the same time then we might see each other...she's more than welcome to plant stuff on her side of the fence, we've given her permission to use that bit of our land :smile:

    By time we sell I'll be too old to care or pushing up daisies: they've been there since 2006 and aren't going anywhere. Anyway, neighbours can hardly complain if the fence is on our side :smile:

    Been on site, been on zoom and randomly, does anyone have a digital copy of BS5395 part 4?
    If you (or your mate of a mate does) and could get it to me it would be appreciated.

    Afternoon folks,
    Big storm last night, had to go out on the terrace and secure some bits at 3am and got soaked through. This morning dawned bright and sunny. Went for a walk through Verona, went up the funicular and walked down, visited aunty and borrowed uncle's car to go and visit one of my cousins, had a very fine ice cream at the gelateria in Parona run by the former double downhill MTB world champion.
    Now relaxing for a little while before going out for food and flying home.

    @homers_double

    This?:

    I have emailed a builder, I also know an installation engineer, so I have asked the builder but won't see the installation engineer until tomorrow if need be.
    Can you give me more please? What is the section titled as?

    Permanently Installed Fall Protection Systems ?

    Thanks but not that, its Code of practice for the design of stairs for limited access

    Mainly within an industrial environment, think automation plant with maintenance areas which need stair to get to.
