Mummy you're in / near Sheffield aren't you? If so try calling Taylor Made Gardens. We used them for some near industrial garden clearing at the museum (National Emergenc Services) last year after getting many many quotes and they were genuinely polite chaps: came out and quoted, took the time to explain all our options, and the lads he had with him really worked their guts off! I'd be more than happy to use him in my garden if I needed help and could afford it.


Hope that helps!

Morning all. Final school for this week - this means I'll have had 176 students through the door. We'll see if the immune system boosting supplements Dove suggested are working. The Museum is sans cleaner once again (left because he didn't like being expected to clean... erm?!) So at least I'm able to ensure not only my classroom but everything else I can find time to wipe down is thoroughly disinfected! 

Puppy had a reasonable night with only a small amount of barking and running up and down the stairs. I'm just hoping that today fellow dog walkers will at the very least stay in the same postcode as their free running dogs. It does make things more stressful for those of us working on training our excitable 23kg puppies! 

Daffodils in June?

Try filling the fridge this year and see what happens? 

We're trialing many plants this year ready for next years wedding on 26th June. So many of them are going to be reliant on what kind of winter and spring we get And we're already looking at paper / silks just in case!

Currently snoring away OL; the long evening walk might have helped. I'm hoping he'll not decide to have his 04:00 mad session running up and down the stairs that we experienced this morning: its not a good way to wake up! He seems more settled tonight thank goodness: his lordship being away often throws a spanner in his routine. 

Sweet dreams everyone. Try to keep your hands to yourselves!

Thank goodness I'm 29 and all such thoughts of lust have been replaced with wanting a mug of tea and new slippers!

Well its safe to say puppy and I had better learn to decorate if we want to get this house sorted.

Puppy has already proven himself a liability in the garden as I haven't a daffodil left!

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Morning all. 77 school children visiting today: at least I'm hoping so the school seem a little lacking in responding so I'm half expecting them not to turn up. 

Sunflower - meet Reggie! 9 months old bundle of bark and tail wagging. This photo was after yesterdays very muddy walk where I had to put him in my old hoodie to dry him off / spare the furniture.
