Afternoon all -have lunched and feel things are getting back to normal

I would go for concrete stepping stones-use a container to disguise them when not needed

Todays mop of the day

Mod of the day

 Thanks for the idea Geoff, I will price some.

30/09/2012 at 14:57

Ah the mods-those where the days-parkas and the Smallfaces- I always wanted a motorbike and a leather jacket to be rocker

Never got the motorbike- but got the leather jacket 25 years later

Never got the drum kit

30/09/2012 at 15:03

I have just googled Smalfaces speedos and a leather jacket eh

Some stepping stones. I bought these with the intention of saving me from stepping on the soil. But don't actually use them. I put them where I think would be good spots to step, but then never actually want to step just there.

The half-moons are meant for linking together to build a path across grass (I think). I don't understand why some people don't want to step on grass. The small square slabs are the most practical. The red ones are too good to put on soil. They look nice against green grass, and are ideal for anyone who is learning Chinese. (I do apologize to any Chinese readers if I have put them the wrong way up).

Teenager of the 60's-can you still buy spot cream?

Gary has just sworn at me

30/09/2012 at 15:30

Gary it would be a shame to put those chinese ones in the border.

Geoff did the sixties really swing?

30/09/2012 at 15:38

If you can remember the 60s you weren't there- or was that the 70s -can't remember

At some point I had flared trousers,never had a purple heart and the only trip I went on was to school


30/09/2012 at 15:44

I remember the Small Faces & yes, you can still get 'spot' cream, only not always called that nowadays..... J.

30/09/2012 at 15:50

I don't think it worked -instead of spots you had pink gunk all over you face .

30/09/2012 at 16:14

 Body shop still do sage & comfrey blemish gel which I can remember from yonks ago. Daughter has a posh Clinique one as well as cheapos & then there is always toothpaste......

Is this a record? Only 3-4 weeks later the siutcases, from holidays, have finally gone back up into the loft! Yay, I can now try & restore some order on the spare bed! J.

30/09/2012 at 16:26

Jo that is a record I get annoyed if they loiter for 4 days!

Geoff do you still wear the flares?

30/09/2012 at 16:31

I noriced a recent TV ad featuring Mark Cavendish. Apparently he swears by Head and Shoulders. Would not surprise me in the least if he uses aforementioned spot reduction product (if it's still available). Am not sure which famous celebs promote(d) that one.

Good Evening All!

A few very produvtive day's had!

 Bed's becoming vacant at a great rate of knot's!

But happy with that, the whole planting area will be re-designed for next season.

 and still they come!

I too was intrigued with the vegan guy on this weeks GW, n Kate! wanna say thanks for that post! My veggie friend had a bit of a kick in the teeth midweek, unfortunately her tumours have grown, and now being pressured by family to go down the conventional route, but she does not want to!!!! So thinking this read will encourage her to stay on the path she has chosen!!

Sorry to say this Dean but  I was under the impression that he had done the medical route and was eating healthily to stay healthy.  Nice looking veg

30/09/2012 at 16:52

Kate I know you feel I am walking fashion disaster but I ditched the flares years ago in favour of hipsters and y-fronts

A record is a plastic thing that plays tunes

30/09/2012 at 17:02

No Kate! She has stirred wide of it! But she herself has said, she does not feel I'll n since her vegan regime, she has never in her life had as much energy, does not have tired spell's n sleep's like a baby! So it must be doing some good!!! 

But yeah! I know what ya saying!!! 

Oh! n I may have an answer to your bedding problem! Will dig out of the garage tomoz! n if any good, you are more than welcome to them!!

Dean I am intrigued did you watch the programme that said that your medical life is pre-programmed in the womb, it was fascinating. They tried to explain why 20 a day smokers live till they are 90 but vegan yoga fanatics cannot escape their destiny.

Geoff what are y-fronts?

30/09/2012 at 17:40

Oh you have led a sheltered life- all the you dudes are wearing them-I shall wear them to grandad's party
