Oh bless you Mike I bet you never thought you'd find yourself having to tell your daughter about your fan club and admirers!!

Glad to hear that though the operation wasn't as simple as you'd have liked, that its over, you're "okay", and you'll be home soon.

Keep safe. Keep doing what the doctors tell you.

Well that sounds much less of a bodge than my normal method of duct tape!!

Unblocking water buts

I found getting on my hands and knees and turning the tap on while gently teasing a cheap pen up the spout cleared the muck in my tap very well! (Watch out for splash back!)

If you've a lot of dirt in there you may want to empty it out and go for the tights over the inlet to stop it blocking up again. Just remember to empty the tight every so often!

Evening folks, hope you've all had a good day. 

KEF, did you build the coldframe all by yourself  Not sure I like the size of those  ladders 

Clari, the scary thing wasn't there last time I went, can't remember what you called it. Sounds like fun, memory cells not functioning, I'll have to look back on posts, think you said they aren't putting it on anymore, shame 

OL , hope LBM does well in his exam tomorrow, think it might be the same as my s.son's, science.

Have you a gentleman in your life who wouldn't mind peeing into the compost bin (or into a jug at least) to help break things down?

That's alright then.....they must like you 

Ha ha! More they realise I don't stand for any messing around and would think nothing to passing them a sweeping brush if they're going to get in the way moving things!

They're hoping the exhibit tonight so we'll see what stunt the ghosts pull this time.
