Horrid outside - I'm on the sofa with rubbish telly and knitting

I'll make Nasi goreng with the leftover roast pork from yesterday in a while - real comfort food.   I've cooked the rice and it's cooling.

It'll work fine - just put the mats under the chicken wire and stretch the chicken wire across the top and fix it to the edges of the planter.  I found that using a stapler worked - by the time the staples rusted through it was usually time to replenish the compost and put some more plants in - and if they'd not rusted through they weren't difficult to remove and re-do.

We deal with it because we don't want it in the canopy of our ash tree which overhangs their garden anyway - they quite like it rambling through their hedge but they're happy for us to stop it's re-colonisation of our garden. 

It's not a problem for us, and they come and feed the hedgehogs when we go on our holibobs
