Not enough light is getting to them plain and simple, that's why they are leggy. Leave them outside on good days, bring them in at night.
Thanks Dave. Did that today. Of course, the lovely sunny day I left behind when I went to work turned into cold, cloudy and drizzle. Typical. Anyway, the kids look none the worse so will see what happens in the next few days.
Regarding the sweet peas I'd pinch them out just above the lower set of leaves. It'll encourage them to branch out rather than just stretching up. At this early stage you want them to bulk out rather than grow tall.
