Clari, I told her we're having a smart meter installed next month so we can monitor it daily. 

If she carries on taking the P, it'll go up again. I'm not paying for their laziness. I know they're young and it's their first place, but they really do need to learn.

See original post

 .... and one of the most important lessons they can learn when they move out and play at being grown ups is that no one (other than their parents ) is going to subsidise them

Welcome Nelly   Don't they look gorgeous  

I don't have that one, but I have several similar hardy geraniums.  What I do is when they begin to look tired and straggly I shear them hard back, sometimes to just 4 to 6 inches, then I give them a feed and a good watering ... they soon bounce back and give another beautiful performance

... Ouch Dove, poor you. This hot weather and a plastic boot doesn't bear thinking about and a plaster cast won't be any better 😧.  Yes it was Beckham that did his metatarsal in,  Thing1 (my eldest daughter) did hers a few years back playing football as well.  Were you having a sneaky kick about? ⚽ 

See original post
