Have just bought a dust bag to fit the machine so less mess to clean up. 22/4/2015

Looking at a replacement is proving difficult due to the fact that all the new printers will not print any paper of 106gms or more, let alone card, so will have to look for something that does. I bought my wife a Canon MG5550 all in one printer for Christmas, and when trying to print card found it jammed after a few prints, which prompted me to look at the paper spec, and of course this was not capable of doing the job. I will likely opt for a printer of the same spec, and have to do with thin card in future, unless I find something more suitable at a reasonable price. Bearing in mind that the Pixma 4300 was quite an expensive printer and also capable of printing heavy card and also printing CD’s. Onwards and upwards as they say.
Update. After all the cleaning the Cyan ink has started to flow again and working fine. Hopefully will last for a while, and save me having to get a new printer. Still have loads of ink for this printer as well.

Well the weather has been changeable over the last week or so, but have managed to weed the front garden and tidy up old vegetation from the winter, looking pretty good for now. A start to the back garden will follow when the weather allows, but today it is raining, so nothing will be done. In the front garden, one of the manhole covers and surrounding concrete frame has deteriorated badly and needs replacing. Some time ago I ordered a new manhole cover and it awaits the warmer weather for a start to be made on this project. It will be the third manhole cover to be replaced since I moved in to this property. Concreting is something I like doing so no problem, just need to clear out the old stuff, build a wooden frame and fit the new cover. Roll on the good weather.

Now that I have finished the hallway it was time to get out in the garden to clear up the winter debris that has been left. Had a couple of good dry days this week, and have managed to clear up most of the front garden which is looking good with all the spring bulbs making a nice display of colour. Another few good days should see the front finished for now, and then it will be out the back, which is needing a lot more work done. The weeds have grown with a vengeance, due to the mild winter no doubt. Large pots of spring bulbs are still blooming out back, very colourful.

Comes the revamped hallway, out goes the old tatty carpet and laminate flooring fitted. Got the right tools to do the job this time, a brilliant oscillating multitool for undercutting the architrave round 5 doorways. The old skirting boards were removed and new fancy stuff fitted, looks pretty good. New paint already to finish the walls now and job done. I won’t be doing laminate flooring in a hallway for some time, but am pleased with the result. A new light fitting is now being looked for to complete the job.
After a weeks rest, it will be time for a new project, this time a much easier one, my son has bought me a reel of LED miniature strips to replace the old cabinet lighting in my wall unit, this should be an easier task, no woodcutting required.
