LG  ... why not contact HMRC for advice ... they should have completed the PAYE forms and forwarded them to HMRC on the appropriate dates ....... 

tumbling tom, up a wigwam?

I don't think the way they tumble would lend themselves to training upwards up a wigwam ... why not just plant them in a large pot and let them tumble over the edge ... that's how I've grown them in the past.

That's disgusting LG. I'd be throwing emails off to anyone who would listen; MPs and press included. It may not be for millions but that doesnt ignore the fact that they have broken the terms of your (legally binding) contract. 

See original post

 Totally agree!!!

I chose to remain in Unison after retirement (free) ... it may be that  you also have that option.

Cotinus coggygria - possibly 'Royal Purple' .... aka Smoke Bush

Leave the seed pods on them and let them ripen until they split open ... you can scatter the seeds around and you'll get lots more ... the first year they just form little plants ... the second year they have the flowers

LG ... are you a union member?   If so get them to jump up and down on the Payroll Dept with their Doc Martins on 

Front lawn mowed and edged   Needs a going over with the electric rake to get the moss out since I put some Weed & Feed on, but 'sufficient  unto the day ...' and all that ...   and anyway I need OH's muscle to change from the scarifier fitment to the rake, and he's in the middle of doing something in the studio ...... 

I've ordered the pergola ... delivery was included in that price, so I'm pleased.  I phoned 'cos I wanted to know a couple of things about it ... ended up getting a young chap on his first day there and he was a bit anxious about possibly giving me the wrong info and doing the card payment, so he wrote my queries down and rang me back with the answers, and had his manager by his side when he did the card payment ............ all sorted!    He said he's enjoying his first day at work. 

Delivery should be 10 - 15 working days ........ yippee ....... that gives me time to change my mind several times about which clems to get
