I was going to suggest beer; maybe you can just put it out at night?

Morning all. Haven't read back much yet; struggling to wake myself up! More tea required.

Morning all. Expecting it to be very quiet at work today; it feels like most of Sheffield have left to go to Wembley. I hope they had their jabs.

Did anyone see the solar panel chickens in Aldi last weekend? His lordship got me two; if you ignore the fact that two birthdays ago he promised me real hens, aren't they beautiful at night?

Sweet dreams all.

If anyone is struggling to sleep I can send you some of my snoozy yawns if they'll help. I'm overflowing with them! New medication seems to have turned me into some kind of monster burp machine (6 year old boys would crown me King of the burps with the noises I'm producing) but alas not helping with the fatigue.

Mind you that isn't stopping me looking at allotments... fortunately I can't find who owns our local ones!

Scalping new lawn, upset :(

And of course if those options don't work for you go for the other method of slowly raising the rest of the lawn to match! Topsoil and sand sprinkled into the dips allowing the grass to grow through before you apply the next layer.

New Strawberries

I only use a strawberry plant for three years; after that they are replaced as they are meant to start loosing productivity. I'd leave the flowers and eagerly await the first fruit!

MORNING all! Sat in bed with a snoring partner, snoozing dog, trying very hard to stretch the minutes before we get up for work as long as we can.

What has happened to the glorious sunshine? Oh of course! We're approaching a bank holiday.

Tea is in the pot for all that want it. Hope you all realise that with Verdon away for a while all the good biscuits in the tinwon't have had the chocolate linked off!

Isn't Johnson s baby lotion meant to work wonders for repelling insects?
