OK not exactly jobs , but jobs i can be getting on with due to the virus.

solar panel kit , sikaflex for fitting panel and another one for filling in cracks on old filler.
rust treatment, and paint for underside.
new tap for waste tank so i can reroute it and repair.
new door stay.
oil and filter.
wiper blades.

Well done that man read the instructions for the solar panel carefully, don't climb the ladder to get up there without someone being within earshot because you dont have a pair of these. and dont forget to stop for one of these now and then , and no alcohol while working.

So thats 10 minutes of my day just gone.

With Microsoft and Android doing their best to keep me busy with surprises some mornings called updates, I don't need any more activities.

I have to learn to be and electrician and a plumber, 2 light switches dont work, the strip light bulb in the kitchen is kaputt, but Im not attempting to do that one, I have other lights in the kitchen to use, the boiler condensation outlet must be blocked because the water is now going into a 1 ltr. yogurt pot and I have to empty it each day, it was very lucky I heard the dripping noise when I went up 3 days ago or by now I would probably have a wet ceiling.
My work is never done, unfortunately there are a lot of jobs I cant do so theyll be left undone.

Which solar panels did you choose ronnierome? A similar job is on Chris's "to do" list.

Its all right, Jan, he has a cherry picker (mobile lift thingy that you stand on). We watch those real life hospital programmes where all the silly old fools are blue lighted in after falling off ladders!
