sad news ...

That's such a shame djjjuk. I understand you want to keep the garden in good order but, under the circumstances, I wouldn't do any major building or restructuring work unless you feel it's really necessary( ie if you were going to sell the house in the near future ) as you won't see any real return  for your outlay. Keeping the garden neat is necessary, but if you don't feel comfortable doing it yourself, perhaps a word with other neighbours or a look in the local paper will help you find someone who can do the maintenance at a reasonable cost. Obviously any cost should really be shared equally but I know how difficult all that stuff can be, and if your ex is maintaining the house then it would be fair if you dealt with the garden. It also might be less disheartening to have a third party doing it. 

Good luck dj.... I know what it's like.

Yes Claire  - you're officially odd....

I'm kidding of course - I can understand that in a weird sort of way! 

One of my biggest regrets is not going to see Bowie when I had the chance of a ticket a friend had spare, 40 odd years ago when he was on the cusp of mega stardom.

You can also  PM Daniel directly in the same way you would anyone else Tracey.

Like fidget- GC / and supermarket.  DIY stores are handy too. Don't often buy online simply because I've never needed to!

Distinctive Shrub/Plant

Glad it was peaceful for him Julie.

It's a lovely thing to do . It's more difficult to find flowering shrubs for this time of year but Lizzie's given you some great suggestions, and you could also add some early bulbs round the base if you pick a deciduous shrub like the Witch Hazel or Daphne. That will give you extended interest. Crocus and snowdrops are flowering at this time of year. You'll often get snowdrops in GC's and nurseries just now in pots, or in another month or so 'in the green' ( just means with their foliage still on ) and they take more readily than planting them as bulbs in autumn. Crocus will be available end of summer/early autumn and are very easy to plant and look after.

More high jinks lily.  Us workin' folks have missed all the fun 

Do you think he'd have any success trying to be me?

Ooh which one Dove?  Their first album was tremendous. Big favourite in this house.

I wouldn't have admitted to that chicky 

Bowie 'Hunky Dory' - and he's still a class act.

Regina Spektor. Stunning. My eldest daughter sang her song 'Samson' in a competition at school several years ago accompanied by a friend on piano. Reduced me to floods. A friend said afterwards 'I didn't know she had such a lovely voice'.  

I said  'Neither did I'... 

She doesn't sound so good in her bedroom...
