See what you mean. A rubber band might be a bit springy and cause splattering. Guess you'd need some reasonably thin SK75? 3mm max?

As an aside, any cheap and cheerful present/stocking filler ideas guys?!

Also you should NEVER do number 38, especially when working near the top end of the power of an extension lead.

I am but a humble social engagement manager! Fortunately our insurance advisers are far more knowledgeable and probably come across the aforementioned scenario all the time!  Cool

We can talk about rowing if you like?! I know lots about that!! 

Re: the male/female debate, haven't you heard? Insurers can't determine premiums based on gender any more! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-12608777

So... Christmas presents!

Not ashamed to say that I've just spent 5mins learning the Ninja T-Shirt fold thanks to that link. That's the most I've achieved all day
