I wish I'd won the lottery.  I'd be getting my redundancy handed to me in style. With a great big shiny fire engine on speed dial to plough into the car park at speed horns blazing to give the personality incompatible fire marshal quite the heart attack!

Oh dear! Sounds like mice from the damage I've seen before. They seem to like to taste each one 

Interest fro across the pond.

Morning all! 

Hands still aching from yesterdays fire engine cleaning. There's still some work to be done but she's looking lovely! Spent a lot of time on the ladder wondering if I could trust this lot with some hanging baskets to add a bit of colour to the place.

Hope you all have a wonderful day - nearly the weekend!

We use the orange stuff KEF as its more delicate. The green stuff is still around though and much better to use if you need to involve washing in the shower with it!

No Sherberts here alas. Though would make the day in the office more fun...


I need a morale support dog. One that comes to work with me and soothes my mind so that I don't feel the urge to punch people.

Swarfega is a dream! You get it at most DIY stores (and Halfords) for cleaning the hands of people who do dirty jobs (mainly mechanics, engineering, fabrication...) Its a heavy duty hand cleaner with gritty beads in that help remove the dirt.

We buy it in bulk here! It even cleans bouncy castles that no other detergent could even touch the dirt!

I'm using 25kg bags from Pets at Home (about one every other week) And by the amount its still going down I can only assume they like it!

What have you learnt this year in the garden?

I think the warm winter has something to answer for regarding those little creatures of the guu Nin. Hopefully a good few inches of snow will stop them in their tracks this winter!
