What does your day look like?

A mate of mine bought an older house a few years back. Inspection suggested the deck was in its last throes but good for 3 - 5 years. He attacked the deck the first Christmas and it was like yours, barely holding onto the house. He also discovered some of the better anchor bolts were so high up in the bricks they fractured the brick and were pretty much worthless.

His job went from an expected redo the floor and fix the odd thing found to a full deck with supports.
Yep, pre-purchase building inspections ain't worth a pinch of shit!..better off finding a builder mate or mate of a mate to have a look around.
and the customary 2 slabs of cheap beer is a better deal than what those crooks will charge for doing SFA!

Farming like it's merry old England since 1788...
Not exactly... it's sowing time in the Mallee. Most of them are zero till these days. Unfortunately, last couple of years of drought and failed crop mean there's not much stubble to sow into. Or ground cover in general...

And this sort of gusty south westerly change is more typical of summer rather than damn near winter.

Those crappy yellow ones with cardboard rims have all but disappeared and are being outnumbered by the green lime e-bikes. In a country powered by coal there is nothing environmentally friendly about them and their product life cycle and cost to maintain could never pay back what they've taken from the planet.

At least the scooters have not arrived yet, the footpaths will be a battle field when they do.

there is no maintenance, I read somewhere that they cost China about $100 to make including all the GPS equipment and batteries, why repair?

Some entrepreneur will make a painful racing series out of identical reclaimed public bikes.

The same bike for all would be a great leveller, not saying it is a good thing :/
