lol My wife is full Maltese (Gozo) too but she's pretty good with my spending after I pointed out her shoes, handbags, clothes, make up etc. costs $$$$$ She likes to spend!!!
I'd be in more trouble if she found out I was telling porkies. Although I do use some smoke & mirrors at times devil lol

I keep telling my wife (Polish decent) "Darling if it is on sale for 50% off it was never worth the original price and remember they are still making a profit at 50% off". This came about when i looked at a lipstick that was $16 Normally $32, i could not believe it however, my wife bought two because it was a bargain.

In our household Mrs D's Shoe, Wine, and Cosmetics purchases are conducted without restraint.

But buy just one new Detector coil and Ooooooohhhh, "but you already have one......" lol

Father in law from Qormi and mother inlaw from zabbar @mbasko my wife has been to gozo though...
I work in high rise construction everyday doing steel reinforcement...
My brain though is hundreds of kilometres away in the bush with my detector and my pan..
Sooo much fun to have so little time to even wipe my ass!

I laugh because we did the contents insurance a couple years back and so I gave the actual figure on my detectors and work tools written out to Mrs GT on a sheet of paper. Her eyes nearly popped when she read it.

Luckily she had the good humour to hand me the excuse that I had purchased them S/h and let me walk away from it unscathed. argh

She hasnt had a crappy birthday gift since flowers present .

A gpz19 coil.

Both my mates who owned zeds (with 19" coils) have sold them.

So I had to buy my own so I could test it against my 20" x-coil to find out which one is better. Hopefully in one week, ill hook up the caravan and head over to Waanyarra for a well-deserved break.

Let us know if its any good.

The wife's been saying we need a new mattress but I'm used to our stiff/uncomfortable mattress. I think its like 20 years old. Same with our pillows, 20 years old and probably half full of dust mite dander but i like them.

Just spent the last two weeks painting our house. What a prick of a job. Probably have another couple of months until its finished. Prep work is the killer. Our house is two-story with lots of angles. I had to build scaffolding to reach difficult spots. The wife says just pay someone to do it but if you want something done properly you often have to do it yourself. When I fell off the roof last week she said your not going back up there. (when i got back from my xrays i got straight back on the roof)

I have a section that I can not reach so going to get a bloke in to do that bit for me... should only take him a hour or so

Saves me having to buy another ladder

Then I will paint the rest of cottage

Should only take me a couple'of days

Plus repaint the front deck

Then do some touch ups inside as there is some kind of marks coming through the selling... got a special pant to fix that up so should not be a problem

My stepfather teached us all how to paint houses back when I was a kid

Then get stuck in and clean up the beer garden and the other garden space

Might even buy some new plant's

Go easy Goody, not too much in one day. Just be sure those marks on the ceiling are not mould as you don’t want to breathe that stuff in. Good luck with the project.

Thanks Mackka

It's not mould , just a stain coming through

The people that had the cottage before us did not seal the roof very well

It's ok as it is a easy fix but time to do it

I am going to use a product called Zinsser B.I.N interior and spot exterior

Primer sealer stain blocker

Will do a light sand then put it on , then repaint the sealing again

Have 3 spots in loungeroom and 1 in the bathroom and another in the bathroom to do

When I put my mind to it I will Nock that off in a afternoon

The outside should only take couple of days I hope as I don't want to be painting when it is to hot out side as it nocks me about a bit

As today it is going to be 27 dg

So need to get it done before it gets to hot

Goody most pros don't use that Zinsser although some do, But in all honesty you can fix that problem just by using plain white Gloss, I have done that for years, I was in the building game for years, Because Gloss paint is Oil based it will hold back any staining, so give that ago and save your money, That Zinsser is dear as poison Ay, thumbsup

Yep i know RR

I bought the Zinsser when I use to work at Bunnings so I got it for a discount..

Have had it in the shed and forgotten about having it until I went through my paint's and brushes , rollers, ect ect as I am going to start painting the exterior of my cottage

A small tin of the Zinsser cost around $50 for 1L tin

But it does a great job..

Plus like you said I could of used white gloss but I have the Zinsser all ready so may as well use it ha
