But I'm not a foreigner! I just live abroad. They send me GW magazine (more expensive!)

Where to start?

Inform the council about the brambles. You don't want them spreading into your garden. You can always deal with a barrier later eg hedge. If you plant a hedge first the brambles will get into it. Several sprays with Glyphosate weed killer will help get rid of them, but ask the council.

Clear away the junk, keep useful things, like bricks - may need them for edging beds etc later. Mow the grass. When it's tidied and mown you can see better what you have. Weed and clean the patio, then paint the workshop. Necessary to keep it from rotting. Cuprinol do good paints for sheds etc.

Buy a good gardening book. Decide what you want the garden for - veg, flowers, children's play, dining out, sitting in etc. Then take some photos and come back here to ask again!

Identify a weed please

Non the wiser after the latest photos, seedlings too young, no true leaves yet.

I've come across this website, written by an amateur gardener for other gardeners. It has a bit about weeds with photos and other handy bits such as seed sowing.

That is too young to tell. It hasn't even got it's true leaves yet. Most seedlings start like that, could be one of your seeds!

Bit like here in France, the people in Brittany are in their own country too.

The red peppers show "hot" threads, but don't know why they are hot. Perhaps Daniel the GW website editor knows.

I want to hide the houses at the end of the garden

Laurel grows quickly and is dense. Would make a good screen but not too close to the boundary. Some people aren't keen on it, but it works. You could always keep the garden rubbish area behind it!

Problem with my shrubs

Have you watered them? Don't let newly planted shrubs dry out.
