I had the scariest doll called Marian - both of my children were scared of her - even when they grew up - I eventually put her in an auction in a job lot of 'collectables' - about the only way I could get rid of her

My kids took their special teddies with them when they left home ... son still has his bear somewhere in his bedroom .... and he's 40+     Wonky had a blue rabbit called Ah-ber - think she's still got it somewhere.  I've still got my teddy Edward that the parents bought for me from Hamleys when they knew I was on my way - he's very old and threadbear (that's a joke that is )  .

Many garden centres have aquatic sections.  Or you can try these people http://www.puddleplants.co.uk/ They're really helpful and their plants are really good quality and value for money.  (I'm not related to them).  If you need advice you can Contact Annette (see the link on their site) who will advise you.

The thing is most aquatic plants aren't sold at this time of year as they're dormant - you'll probably have to wait for the spring.

Lawn trouble

Posted: 02/01/2016 at 12:23

In the past I've turned rough pasture into a passable lawn by using Weed & Feed a couple of times a year and regular (at least weekly) mowing when it's growing.  As has been said, a bit of spiking to help with drainage, and some raking in the autumn to remove thatch (dried grass/moss around the roots) will work wonders
