Wouldn't want UKIP in power or indeed the Lib Dems, but do think they stop the excesses of both the Tories and Labour.

In my experience gardeners would make the best politicians, they make plans for the future, accept failure and try again, communicate with others ( this forum a prime example) and share their knowledge and produce.

Digger one of the benefits of retirement is to indulge yourself, spending the kids inheritance.

You make me seem positively lazy, which I am on occasions. Every year I resolve to be neater tidier and finish one task before starting another.

i have learnt not to overstock the greenhouse and therefore get better crops of tomatoes and peppers.

From personal experience pursuing the credit card company gives the best chance of success . Pay everything on the card except the disputed item,,they will not want to commence proceedings and will put pressure on the supplier to settle.

How did you pay?

i had a similar problem earlier in the year, credit card co was very negative until I threatened to cancel then leaving a balance for the sum in dispute.

eventually partial refund from supplier and £50 from Lloyds for their negligence.

an untreated shed is not of merchantable quality, cancel the contract.

"Exposing it thoughtlessly to foreign bodies" 

I have been on the beach in Corfu and quite agree.
