You know we'll only shoot you in the arse. ;)

Good luck for the job interview Noisybast. Always a bit nerve wracking.

I have a card from my 1yr old niece (written by her personal secretary/mum of course) thanking me for my present of a ball for her birthday. I am full of awwwwwwwwwwwwwww now.

Some of the criminal underworld have tried to break into our shed at the bottom of the garden. It was funny to look at their pathetic attempts as they tried to saw through two grade 4 padlocks (grade 5 is the best but most expensive in the range I looked at). About 1mm of the outer coating hardened plastic was cut through.
I just wish I'd have caught the twats but that's why I paid for decent padlocks, plus everything inside is chained together, just in case!

Remember folks, buy decent protection and prepare your defences well  ;)

The Shed of Dredd is impregnable!

Got the job. Doing a half day's training tomorrow afternoon and starting ful-time on Monday. Awesome...

Hurrah for Noisy!

Imagine what THE CELLAR must be protected with if the Shed of Dredd is so well locked...

I am impressed! One question: a known weak point of padlocked sheds is screw-on hinges and flush plates. How have you avoided such an obvious pitfall with your shed?

The hinges are heavy duty ones and the all the screws are covered by the metal plates that fold back on themselves when you lock the shed. So as the perp looks at the lock all he can see are metal plates with a padlock.
Just did a quick search (as I'm off to work in a minute) and it looks something like this -

You can get heavy duty hinges that are bolted on where the the bolts have round heads facing out that cant be undone from the outside.
