I'm Robs wife Jacqui, & as some of you may know, I'm a Cougar widow. :rolleyes:
Not content with turning our home into what looks like a Cougar brakers, he's just spent ages doing this in our living room. :eek:ut:
At least he's promised to move the 'spare' engine off the patio in time for summer....

That's perfectly normal behaviour for a petrol head...I've used baking sheets and our oven to heat treat bits of motorbike I've painted in the past...much to my wife's amazement :LOL:.

She is very understanding...as it sounds you are too! :smile5:

Off the patio, into the living room to make a start on that.....
Good Lad :yesnod: (y)

Yeah want you wanna do is drop the heads and stick a nice glass top on it and use it as the coffee table.

And if you have the spare leather interiour in the loft dig that out and spread that around the living room. :yesnod:

Rob tells me that dishwashers are great for cleaning bits of engine....but promises he's not done it in ours...:skep:
And no, I'm not understanding, just mistified.

Oh God, don't tempt him....

Funny you should say that, we do have a spare set. :eek6:

You have my sympathy Jacqui

Thank-you, I think?

Designers say that the garden should be another room to the house, so why can't the living room become a garage.

Seems peerrrrrfectly reasonable to me. LOL.

Huh, should have guessed I'd not get any sympathy from you lot! :LOL:

Perhaps if you ask Admin. very, very nicely when the forum is refurbished they could add another category where more of you like-minded other halves could chat together and pass-on knitting patterns, recipes and such like. With a working title of "Views From the Kitchen Sink" I'm sure it would go down a storm..............................:ihih::ihih:
