    My mate was from Edinburgh. Try saying ‘shotty’ in your roughest Scots accent and you get more an idea how grim they were.

    I remember a mate of mine from uni was into those. Looked pretty crackpipey..

    My mate had an amazing 2l coke or pepsi bottle shaped like r2d2 that we used for buckets, must’ve been phantom menace era. Nothing but rock hard dirtbar hash round our way back then.
    His dad ran a plumbers merchants so he built the raddest bowl setup out of brass fittings.
    Good times.

    Entered, her work is cool. Thanks for sharing.
    Seen a lot of raffles but she’s the first I’ve seen I’d want to get work from.

    The cute ones have all started OnlyFans accounts while the work is off it would seem ;) nice to see all the prints, watercolours, sculptures and other pieces they’re all producing at the moment.

    I’m glad I got poked day before lockdown, Liz bought an amazing print from a @nikkilollytattoo and we’ve both made enquiries with @carlotta_ink for when she’s next in London.

    Is the climbing frame fixed to the floor? Could always ask them nicely to move it back a little from the fence if not.
    I’m sure they wouldn’t want to overlook your space any more than you’d want to look into their kitchen. Over the years I’ve pruned hundreds of trees in weird wonderful ways to help people maintain privacy.

    Trellis on top is always an option and gives you a little more space for growing awesome climbers.

    Could a shade sail be a viable option as well? I’m a big fan of them.

    Speaking as a weary jaded arborist, please promise you’ll kill that monkey puzzle before it gets big enough that some poor bugger has to climb it one day. Beautiful but evil.

    Fence resto work is impressive.

    My first trip to southbank was prob 97-98 probably. Scary as fuck as a 13yr old grom amongst locals hooning around at full pelt.
    I mostly just cruise to the shops these days but have waxed a curb out the front of my building and am using lockdown to try and relearn a few things. I’ve still got bs180s but can barely ollie. Doubt I’ll heelflip a 5set ever again but man can dream.
    Just being able to hop up and down curbs again like a boss and get my boardslides back(I used to be able to slide pretty much every parking curb, ledge, shitty low wall etc in my home town) would be nice.
    Braille skate vids on YouTube have some amazing instructional vids.

    Just dug this out of a box. Remember picking it up in a charity shop around ‘96ish when I started skating. Rad.
