I always clean my pots I wait for a pile of them and do them all  together. my dad is the same, and he used to pay me a half pence each for doing them!

I am very tidy, I get it from him. I cant help it.

and I like the smell of jeyes fluid.


Is this blight?

looks like frost to me! too early for blight I would've thought, tho you can check on the web to see if its in your area. new leaves should come thru, I had the same problem one year, im in the midlands too. wish the frost would get lost!

I knew someone who found one in his back garden, it was great! but he told his landlord who told the council who made him fill it in and block it up -  health and flippin' safety - so watch who you tell !!

school dinners. I only started having them at high school, and they were great! there was always chips and sausages, and a pudding, corned beef hash pie. once we had a roast pork dinner, all the trimmings, and I put my fork into a roast potato and it flew in the air into the games teachers lap.

happy days!

really feel for you but theres nothing you can do if they do not want to do anything. its not worth getting into a horrible situation with your neighbours about. they obviously don't realise how bad it is for you and they never will. you cant make horrible people into nice ones.

having said all of that ( I have terrible neighbours who don't cut their side of our hedge and it is a real mess) I inherited 6 conifers on my front garden, took 4 out, left the other 2 for privacy. it wasn't until I chopped those down too and took photos that I realised how awful they  had looked, and how nothing would grow underneath them!! your neighbours are the same. they don't realise !

its very violent, lots of nudity,mainly women, who are prostitutes or princess's,and im afraid,i found it very predictable. its always a shame when everyone raves about something,and you just don't get it!!

perhaps its not aimed at me,more adolescent boys!having said that,my friend is my age..hum..its me!!
