    Obi Wan Kenobi

    For me Rogue One is one of my fav Star Wars films, yep the Vader scene was cool but just really liked the whole thing and how well it did with giving off the original Star Wars vibe, something the other new films seemed to miss.

    Deck over slabs...

    Also got decking with a good section of it being built on top of an old patio. No issues with rats/mice at all, I just made sure the whole underneath was covered in weed sheets, if nothing can grow then there's nothing to attach any wildlife.

    Pergola Canopy

    Amazon for 3mm wire kit, something like https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0995CHRLR, there are plenty alternatives depending on your lengths and fixing requirements. Struts for the canopy sections will just be 28mm Pine dowels and surprisingly the cheapest place seems to be B&Q. With just...

    Pergola Canopy

    That is similar to what I'm going to be making making but at a faction of the cost, the above totals £400 with all components but I've worked out I can source materials for around £110 all in max. Already sorted wire cables, turnbuckles and fasteners/fixings. Next task is sourcing extra wide...

    Higher rate tax band - things to be aware of?

    That's my concern, other than the big financial dip that that has hit for the last six months my pension was looking pretty healthy, just concerned that the government will interfere to the point where I won't be able to make use of it before I'm too old.

    Higher rate tax band - things to be aware of?

    Just be careful with your pension lifetime allowance (LTA) otherwise you could be hit with the tax on the other end.

    Pergola Canopy

    Ha, but to be honest throughout the year we have to have the curtains/blinds partially closed due to the amount of sun that hits the rear of the house. This would allow the patio glass to remain clear but still shade from direct light. Previously had a massive parasol but that wasn't great...

    Pergola Canopy

    In prep for hopefully a nice summer I’ve just built myself a Pergola at the rear of the house (south facing), I now want to install a sliding canopy to hang beneath like the below. Seems to be plenty of places that will sell a pergola with a canopy but not a canopy by itself, just wanted to...

    Higher rate tax band - things to be aware of?

    This was one of the most annoying things I found when converting from contracting to perm a few years back, very few ways to be tax efficient these days.

    Finally got around to using my camera for the first time this year, despite struggling to remember what the various buttons did I actually quite enjoy it and its given me that kick up the backside to get out and shoot again. Yes I know I've done plenty of these "looking up" pics before...but hey...
