Image isn't working Edd.


Yarrow - we have a variety of nail brushes from very soft to similar to the style you'd use to scrub the floor. Seems to be the only way to get your nails clean!


That said I used to shower with a brillo pad to get the dirt off sometimes!

Oh don't mention woodchip! We've three rooms that we need to hack the woodchip off - managed to put off starting for six months now but I'm not sure how longer we can keep finding excuses.

I don't even know where my nearest Sainsburys is! Bit posh for us is Sainsburys! But I'll keep my eyes out you never know we might strike lucky

veg and poisons question??

Without knowing what type of weed killer she used I think we'd struggle to answer this properly.

I live with someone who would rather starve than cut up raw chicken. He is physically sick if he has to touch it and goes into complete melt down.

I on the other hand will get my hands in / on anything, raw chicken, mud, dough, up a cows ho-ha, there is very little these hands wont touch if needed.

Show me a wobbly tooth however and I go a distinct green colour - I have actually considered not having children purely on the basis that I don't think I could cope with their baby teeth coming out!

Sweetpea where did you get those storage boxes? They're BEAUTIFUL!! Much envy from the cardboard box brigade over here!


I'm back on a computer. This time at home tidying up my CV. Partner being "helpful" suggested I had a rum and coke... not sure that and CV would have been a good idea


"To Whom It May Concern:

I am truly awesome and would make a terrific asset to your team.

P.S. I can hear a kettle boiling from a mile off and am well versed in the making of an engineers brew knowing the maximum timings for the optimal hobnob dunking to be 45 seconds with milk chocolate ones 57.3 seconds.


Shall I start on Monday?"


Although at least I'd actually be writing my CV not looking for gardening ideas on here!!

Perhaps a neighbour might like them.

Lesley, I don't really know my neighbours well (although certainly I can assure you that one is not at all green fingered). Perhaps I could put them on the front drive with a "free to good home" sign. There's still a bush out there from when I went on the local "sales forum" offering a few plants to anyone who wanted to collect them - its been months but I just haven't gotten round to moving it!

Oh they're definite slug masters that's for sure! Maybe I should sacrifice them and put them at the edge of the garden as traps to stop the slugs venturing towards my tomatoes.

Not quite companion planting...

Non of them are exactly little either else I'd be trying to put them in the post to the flood victims fund but I think between them they'd be a car load on their own!
