    I was on my days off and I got a text from Dweeb wondering when I was off as he was off for the week and wouldn't mind coming up to rake around in derps and generally get away from working on his house. I was sick of wallpapering and I needed a break too so he came up the following day.
    We had been in here a few years back but he had lost his pictures and I had forgotten my camera so we found a way in and had a good look round.

    I was in here a few months back and noticed how it has gone downhill still you made it look good with your pics nice work indeed. It was a shame to see the 1950s paperwork in such a damp and poor condition too when i was there. Still worth a wander though.
