Sounds like they're learning some of what pubs are about - rest and relaxation   They'll learn the other aspects in due time

Chicky - that's great news!!!  


Just a word of warning, on Christmas Day watch his portion size and get him to pace himself - his stomach will have got used to smaller hospital sized portions and eating larger portions plus the richer food on Christmas Day can trigger problems ... been there and done that ... ending up in A&E on Christmas Evening with Pa ......... twice

But most teenagers have always kept themselves to themselves and not socialised across a wider age range ... by just being there they will have absorbed stuff which will come to the fore when their brains have finished re-wiring and they become more social beings.  


But I agree with Doghouse - the focus on narrow educational achievement in order to get into uni etc, plus highly anxious and protective parents fuelled by scare-mongering media, is not equipping youngsters to live independent adult lives.

Seeds to start early

It's all very well having the heat to start them early, but what is vital is having enough space and the right conditions to bring the seedlings on once pricked out and potted on. Do you have a heated greenhouse or warm and light conservatory?

It's likely to be either under or over watering, coupled with too low light levels and temperatures. Did you give it a good soaking and then turn the heating off and close the blinds before going on holiday?
