    Oh dear - local carnival this weekend, lots of sunshine and lots of alcohol doesn't bode well.

    I've got a date. I'll look like a cherry tomato by the end of it, I'm sure they'll be impressed.

    Maybe they really like tomatoes?

    Teenage son got bad sunburn at Goodwood on Saturday... [mum] i told him to wear his hat and use sun cream![/mum]

    He has finally decided that a hat, etc are a priority for his DofE Gold expedition starting Sunday... So they have magically appeared from the cupboard as I had bought stuff anyway.

    His practice expedition at Easter in the Brecon Beacons was in the snow with -6C at night... Slightly different conditions! He needs fewer clothes and more water this time.

    This job took longer than expected so I spent most of the day outside in the glorious (but a bit brutal) sun

    Nice job mate. May want to look at some extra tiles above the window. Water may be a beeeeep.

    Thanks, it was my first time and apart from a little advice and an odd extra pair of hands i did it all myself
    The tiles been cut down to size as per instructions, to avoid the window hitting them, admittedly the window will never really be open that wide.
    Also the overlap over the flashing is quite substantial
