Bit more BIY, but hopefully starting to hit the final straight. Trimmed the other side of the hedge, no CQ incidents. Bit more plastering, this time some finishing plaster on quarter of a wall, so that everything that needs plastering is now done and should be dry by the time I get back from holiday.
Also went out to meet an old friend in the evening. It was good to catch up a bit, and hopefully we'll be able to meet up a bit more frequently than we have done for the last few years. Now I've got a bit more Copious Free Time I might even get back involved in some semi-academic things.
[Edit: noticed a typo which I was going to correct it but somehow BIY seems more appropriate: Bodge It Yourself. It also reminds me of an American friend who could never quite get the acronym rightshe'd come out with DYI every time.]
