102 pop rivet

Now I’m back in good old Blighty I’m looking forward to using my brand new pop riveter.
This is not a euphemism or an idle boast.
I’m actually going to start fixing stuff together to create objects that probably, going from past experience, will instigate a wonderful feeling of euphoric relaxation that will encourage sleep. However I shall attempt to encourage beautiful dreams or nightmares with my efforts.
I’m going to my shed now …

    Please could you kindly bring your popriveter, along with any plumbing equipment you may have over to my attic (when I’m back, obviously!)

    I’m not talking to you – you’re somewhere warm.

    You’re making a bed? A hammock hanger?

    You can talk to me, it’s NOT WARM HERE, it’s raining and the water in the bathroom is cold and…and…it’s gloomy weather and I want to see the sun 🙁

    daddyp replied:

    I’ll talk to you of course! Perhaps I should make you a heated umbrella …

    Well this should give you nightmares. I’m back!! I just couldn’t stay away!!

    Wow it’s good to see and read a post here. I’ll be adding you to my roll as soon as I get done here. I don’t want to miss anymore than I already have!

    Thanks for the rivet today. I needed it!

    is that part of your “50 Sheds” perverted thing?

    daddyp replied:

    Actually no. However my perversions will become self evident … obviously. Incidentally I’m thinking of painting the shed … any suggestions?

    beige. i think you should paint it beige….

    daddyp replied:

    50 Sheds of Beige does have a ring to it. I’m feeling optimistic BTW.

    Many a dream and an occasional nightmare have been had in the ol’ shed. But now I’m wondering where I’ve placed my pop riveter? Hmmm… off to the shed.

    The way to a man’s heart is through his shed. [I’m just about to ask for an extension …. shuuuuuuush]

    It is warm here but wet. And flashy and thundery! Do you have weather in your shed?

    daddyp replied:

    I have spent a large proportion of my day in the shed and there was weather. I wore earplugs and turned on the heater so managed to ignore most of it.
