...three lights; four lights; five lights......

(anyone fond of motor racing will know what my heading means) - false start!

My solder, yes SOLDER, arrived in today's post. So, naturally, I thought I'd have a go.
Oh-oh. As soon as it started heating up, my brand spanking new soldering iron smoked rather more than I expected, and as I was planning to practise soldering (why do the American videos all say what sounds like "soddering"?) in the room housing my stick insects, and stick insects being sensitive souls when it comes to aerosols, vapours, and smoke, I have unplugged and opened the window. I shall have to set up elsewhere until the iron no longer smokes so.

Guess what I'll be doing this bank holiday weekend?
