Morning GG must admit don't know what i would do without my greenhouse when my son & daughter bought me the new 8x6 one as a present last Sept when i took up gardening after being ill it brought a tear to my eye. Now need this secondhand one as the first one is full steam cleaned the ally framework yesterday and has came up like new now got the glass to clean as am putting it in. Only downside is there about 6 panes missing but i will get them no bother from a friend who has a double glazing business.

Palaisglide your post is right on the mark what i will say is some youngsters are trying to run before they can walk as my father once said. A lot of it is how they are brought up as well working in the school it's sad to see how some parents go about bring a family up and it's the kids that come off the worst may i say. You know what my heart goes out for the younger girls & boys leaving school now and trying to start off in life with jobs,housing and the economy hopefully the future will get better for them glad am at this age never thought i would say that years ago.
