1) Building my new PC!!! :D:D:D
2) Treating mold around a couple of window frames then resealing them. :ohwell::ohwell::ohwell:
3) Replacing the hallway carpet with some wooden flooring. :(:(:(
However, I can see that once 1) is completed, 2) and 3) may not get a look-in.
This weekend I will mostly be:
- Setting up my new 350litre fish tank.
- Painting the walls of the living room before setting the tank up.
- Combing the woods/rivers/beaches hereabouts for free dift-wood for said fish tank.
Are you me???? Seriously change 3/4 weeks to days and I could say the same thing. Only difference is that Iim waiting for the pi to arrive as I want to get it configured before the little one arrives :)

It acted as a great snow net - but it ended up sagging down to..about 5ftish. I went out and had to duck to get to the rabbit/guinea pig cages. Further investigation now the snow has gone, has revealed some retensioning is needed and that one of the furry reprobates has put a hole in it..heh. Bless 'em.
I was hoping for more on what a catrun is?! Sounds like a giant maze for cats! :)

Mind you, it now means I'm allowed to join the "cool parents" table in the canteen, with science and the others to compare parenting notes and Pi implementation.. ;)

Something that'll take the tantrums and abuse, and if it does break, it was cheap.
Ha, no..just a big-ish enclosure we built on so they can have external access and we don't need to worry about any harm befalling. Mind you, the whole "leg it through the dining room, hit the table, leap through the serving hatch, exit through catflap1 to the utility, exit flap #2 to outside, come hurtling back in the window, rinse and repeat" routine can be a bit of a trial when all 3 decide to play. Kids think it's funny though..which to be fair, it is quite.

might put up a dove cot.
and if i have time esquire about the foundation ham exam.
I'm in the process of boarding the loft out for storage, should be finished tonight. Fitting plug sockets on Saturday so the house PC/media server and Sky box can live up there. It's been in the spare room for a while connected to various displays around the house with a wireless keyboard/touchpad mouse thing we use to control it. Now it'll be completely out of the way. I haven't checked yet but I'm hoping the bios allows power on via key press or the whole plan's out of the window until I rethink it (long wire on power button maybe?).
Wedding planning *twitch* when will it end
I did get around to making a useless machine last weekend, still gets turned on every time someone pass's it
I'm guessing you have a breed of indoor cat then? :)
