    image.jpeg Been thinking for a while about this post. It could get canned immediately. I started it on another group I use and it's been well recieved and used. I'm thinking that being RUOK day it may get to stay.
    We'll hear goes. Built and adding to a play area for the grandchildren. We see our grandkids a lot as others may do and the joy they bring my wife and I is immeasurable. I do a lot of riding and working in the shed on bike stuff but nothing compares with seeing the little ones.
    I'm not saying this is about grandkids or building stuff. Just thought it might be nice to see what others do with their time. Ill leave it with you, all the very best.

    Yep know what you mean, time with my grandkids is all good, forget about all the crap at work. Built this for my eldest grandson for his first birthday. Got another to build soon 20180505_153549.jpg

    Aha! Me too Paul, but I only managed it once before I retired from the kids sport:

    These days it's a bit of easy mountain bike riding or even easier bike paths around Melbs.
    And the grandkids get a bit of time too......

    Cheers
