My brother is coming over for a surprise visit in a couple of hours with his family. After that we have the Queen of Fire discussion ofcourse!

Tomorrow I'll try to film 2 videos in the morning and edit one of those to go up in the evening. In the afternoon we're going to some friends to watch the race (F1) and have the last bbq of the year.

Very busy lately (not much chance to post). Playing Disco Elysium, which is a tour de force of games development. Amazingly written and designed. I'd love to know more about the devs and designers - i suspect they're geniuses.

Had 2 online sessions with Scuba instructor. Very proud of Fin (my son, not the foot-based propulsion system).

Finished watching White Lotus series - 68%, with some excellent characters.

Mega food shop.

Installed under-unit lighting in the kitchen.

Didn't mow the lawn...

Trying to tack down intermitted electrical fault that trips the RCD's for the whole house every few days.

Cooked a half-decent chinese and an amazing lasagne (modesty was never my strong suit).

I did it at 8. 30 this morning. In the process tripping out the house 4 times.

Electric Mowers still exist?

 

I suppose they are actually the future. haha  Here I am burning down the environment while I mow the lawn.

Yeah.  Cords always seemed like a dangerous component to a lawn mower.

That would spell disaster for me

Been using them for 40 years without incident. I suspect the problem might be with the operator... 😉

I reckon size might be an issue. I suspect lawns in the UK are typically smaller than the US. It's quite difficult to justify the cost and maintenance of a petrol mower, when ones lawn is 20 ft x 20 ft. Battery mowers are just too new to be part of the conversation yet.

20% of my lawn.  I don't have a better pic for some reason.
