Definitely the 60s Joe, I became a married person in 1970 and had been left school a couple of years - still far too young to choose a life partner but you know what young people are like - they know best

We use these little bowls http://www.feedem.co.uk/cat-c82/cat-feeding-accessories-c114/ceramic-bowls-c115/mason-cash-cane-bowl-lettered-kitten-13x3-5cm-p10706 .  They're fairly weighty so they don't push them about as much as with a plastic one.  

The terracotta plant pot saucers also work well.

That's a thought Wonky - given last tenant's abysmal record at opening door to tradesmen, you and hub had better ask Landlord when boiler was serviced last!

Sorry - you've probably though of that - just being a mum

Yes, that'll do the job.  A sturdy old table fork is nearly as good as long as you don't mind getting down on your knees.

Failing that a dab of glyphosate gel.

Speaking of flowers - when I go out there to pick the last of the tomatoes and grapes, I think I'll pick a big bunch of flowers for the house - the rain's going to spoil them all
