We picked this chicken coop up a few years ago for free.

Our chickens always seem happy and are very productive, we usually get an egg everyday from each chicken, even over winter.

The coop setup needed a bit of work, so we've added a large metal run given th chickens much more room.

Fitting a NATO watch strap to a Casio 100m divers watch MRW-200H.

The watch had the silicone oil hydro mod to increase its water resistance, I had added a colouring dye to turn the oil orange, but this seemed to cause the oil to fog up in cold water.

After a fresh oil swap and NATO strap upgrade the watch is working fine again.

We've have constantly sub zero temperatures in the UK for a week or more. Most of the lakes are frozen, except my favourite deep water pit.

This maybe the last opportunity for a cold bareskin run and dip before the mild weather returns.

After experimenting with a plant based diet for a year, I'm now eating steak everyday

With life changing so fast, now is the time to get fit, get educated and get after it.

My plan for a video everyday didn't play out. Onwards and forwards.

The Mora is a great knife and takes anything I throw at it, however it is not everyday carry legal in the UK.

Can the Svord Peasant Mini do what the Mora takes in its stride?

First boil on the Quechua MH500 1 litre Hikers Camping Kettle from Decathlon.

I favour stainless steel cookware over aluminium.

Microadventures are small expeditions, that got around the rest of life. It's using the spare time after work, once the kids are settle and once the housework is done.

Thoughts on alcohol-free beer and non-alcoholic beer.

Non-alcoholic beers are made up of simple and complex carbohydrates, they contain vitamins and minerals and make good recovery drinks for sports.

Some alcohol beers are marketed as isotonic drinks.


January allotment update. Needs a fair amount of tidying up and cleaning up, but we had a relatively success year last year. Now looking forward to putting the work in for the upcoming spring season.
