Neat. You may be being optimistic about a nice summer but I'd still finish it off with some amalgamating tape. ;)

Can we see some shots of the Bar and BBQ area too, in order to decide whether to accept the kind invitation you haven't yet made?

I've got a Guinness Font/Tap and flash cooler somewhere in a box,I was going to swap the nozzle on the tap for one that dispensed pish water..... I mean Carling/Fosters or Stella but before I had the chance the ex put a stop to it saying she didn't want the Co2 bottle anywhere near the house and I've since stopped drinking

Looks more like a meow moggy LNB, heard they are great for fringe reception due to fine tuning of the cats whisker radio feature:-rofl2

Nice photo:)
