That must why mine is a mess. I'm stuffed in the head, however a few days ago things changed for the better. I'm now much more optimistic. I really need to get the Seeley out for a gallop. My major source of funds depletion has moved.

Or OCD...

So then, empty shed = Empty mind ?
Many projects in a shed = Multitasking mind. ??
Many bikes in a shed = Smorgasbord mind ???
etc etc.

We used to say at work that a tidy desk = a sure sign of not enough work to do ?

Answer: yes!
Many projects in a shed = Multitasking mind. ??
Answer: multi tasking = doing nothing properly.
Many bikes in a shed = Smorgasbord mind ???
Answer: if it's a tidy shed = lucky and well sorted chap!
etc etc.

We used to say at work that a tidy desk = a sure sign of not enough work to do ?
Answer: well, you were wrong !!

IMHO OCD is an over used term, often just used to describe someone doing something properly. Such people are now classed as not normal in this age of 24/7 trivia drivel !

My problem is that I tend to perform many tasks over the top of each other. Does it matter if I use the angle grinder next to where I rebuild my motor ?

Been quite busy the last few months. Things have been rolling along and yesterday I finished the building. All that is left to close it up is doors, which are on order. I gave notice at the storage unit, so the Nortons will be home by the end of the month.
Not the most current picture of the front, I need to take an updated one.

Acotrel, As you have gotten older ( I believe you are now 70+ years) you have become more and more appalling- you cannot teach an old dog new tricks, does this apply to you :?:

You can teach me all the old tricks I have forgotten. The last time I took the Seeley out for a gallop, it was a disaster. What was extremely easy 30 years ago, has become extremely difficult.

Well, if you are quite happy to put grinding dirt/grit on your engine, who am I trying to teach you how to suck eggs :?:

I was only joking. I am too paranoid to use an angle grinder anywhere near my bike. Imagine what that could do ?
