fidget - I think they're obliged to give back that amount of credit. I was £150 in credit this year and next thing I knew it was in my bank account. If it's more than a monthly debit they have to return it. A small threat about going to the papers or local MP might see them change their tune. If your parents are that much in credit then the company has it's sums wrong  about how much power is being used too.

Morning all. Chilly here but not as cold as I expected - more of an air frost as the ground doesn't look sparkly. Work for me so no cuddling of hot water bottles -  although frankly that would help where I work...

Congrats to Edd and Mrs Edd 

Why don't you make a timber raised bed for your blueberries Edd? I made mine very cheaply. It'll give you something to do while MrsEdd is otherwise engaged and stop you getting under her feet...

David - how lovely of you. I'm touched and slightly 

I used to look just like that..

Hope you have a lovely Christmas and New Year too 

starting from scratch!

As Pauline says - a selection of pix will help with suggestions and advice. You can then make some plans over winter to start in spring.

One thing I would say is - if the concrete wall is part of your neighbour's garage, you can't put anything on it without their permission. I have a similar situation here with part of the garage forming some of my boundary. I extended the fence which formed the other part so that it's about a foot in front of the wall.

Morning all. Dry here but very dark. Frost forecast for tonight - winter draw(er)s on as they say..well it is December I suppose 

I woke at half 4 on Saturday and watched endless TV in a bid to get back to asleep but no joy. Slept well last night - for me anyway 

It's quite confusing that Michael Palin thing isn't it KEF? 

Got some plants in yesterday after doing the rest of the gravel then took girls to IKEA for a bookcase for oldest....aaagh

Daffodil bulbs

Daffs - in particular  - are pretty tough Mand. I have quite a lot of crocus poking through and also tulips and alliums. As the others have said, they'll slow down as it cools. Same thing happened last year as it was so mild.  You'll have a nice display in spring  

my deleting ?

I did it by accident once nut   

Not sure it's necessary though - does it get full after a while and need clearing?

Bit like the wash basket...
