toilet has now all been sorted , as detailed on another thread, took a few weeks to do that
i try to do clean the gutters and lubricate all the windows and doors - 3 times a year (Easter, aug BH & christmas time)
Aug bank holiday, i cleaned out all the gutters , removed a bucket of rubbish - dirt/sand/leaves - we get a lot of sand in the gutter as we live only .5km from the sea
also lubricated all the windows and doors in the house hinges, slides, locks.
This week , I repaired a back/side fence, replaced all the horizontal capping rails , which had been rotten , broken 4x4 post with a metpost, also sorted out the gate and gate post - also stained with onecoat medium oak which i purchased from toolstation when on a very good offer - pretty worried when first put on as it went orange but has darken a lot now , and looking quite good.
this morning - i went round the garage and shed and lubricated with GT85 all the hinges , locks and overhead garage door runners and pivots
