A lot has happened since the last update on the new house. We found a joiner and we now have all the doors in place along with skirting boards and architrave. We're halfway through painting them all. There's a lot of wood and at least three coats. The utility room is just about fitted and the office has a built in wardrobe and fitted desks. We have just found a tiler and he is expected to start on September 10th. At the same time as that is going on, we hope to have a tarmac drive installed but because it runs from the gate to the road, we first have to have permission from Lincolnshire Highways Department to cross their verge. We eventually got our drainage installed after that part of the project dragged out for months. We need the roof insulation installed but it’s in hand and we will have to wait for the electrician to do his final couple of jobs.Outside we have roughly levelled the land and with a bit of luck we will get our hands on some free top soil at the end of the month and so it continues . . . .

Sundays continue at BBC Radio Lincolnshire. I am presenting "Poachings", which is a look back at the best bits of the week's output. Please tune in on Sundays, 1-3PM, 94.9FM or on line at In other radio news, I am producing an oldies show for Oman Air

My golf handicap is now 25 and with less time spent on the course (More on the new build) it's not going to get better anytime soon. Ive only played once in two months !

LCR is a community radio station and is available on 103.6FM across the city of Lincoln and can be heard in surrounding villages. The musical tastes of the over fifties are catered for with a selection of music from the eighties back to the war years. It's also available on the web ( I've stepped back from it until after the bungalow is finished when I hope I can engage with the team again.
