Lovely little-ann. It's got quite distinctive green ribs so hopefully won't be too hard to identify

Funny because the 2 times ive moved house i really enjoyed it........

The moving bit's easy Rich - it's dealing with the utilities etc that's a pain!!

Yes- the koi are going into a totaly different environment from the one they're used to. I'm sure they'll be fine. We bought 3 at last house and as we didn't want to put them in the bigger pond with the other fish we put them into a smaller pond  and netted them to stop herons getting them. They were very flighty for ages - one in particular hid most of the time!

Hi Rich- bigolob's right- give them a bit of time to settle. It's fairly traumatic for them moving to a new home - just like us really!

We used some double glazed units laid across old drawers (from a chest of, not knickers!) for a spring cold frame 


great recycling Nicky- no reason why they won't do a very good job!

Think I'd agree with BBen auntieb. Plastic can get brittle too, over time and they'd be a pain to replace if they started breaking up.  I'd go for the concrete ones too

Morning/afternoon Tina -for some reason your post wasn't there when I put mine on earlier. Couldn't stay detached emotionally either much as i'd like to have done something similar too. I know doctors have to be but I'll never forget the way the doctor explained to my Dad that my Mum wasn't going to recover. Got down beside him - Dad was in a wheelchair- and spoke so kindly.  Exemplary.

I should be out digging holes while it's dry but feeling  down after that nonsense.

Good job I've got my 'virtual family' here to cheer me up

I shouldn't let it bother me Matty but I don't have a thick enough skin. She said 'why did you  buy a house here then - it's a family area'......and don't get me started on the fact that when I said didn't it worry them that they're not holding the pram - or their hand - and I've seen them walking onto the road -? she actually said that their (2yr old)  kids should be able to go on the road....???? I said well sorry for caring about your children's safety and got short shrift, so I went in having said well don't complain when you're scraping them off the road with a shovel....

What a lovely view you have Matty !

Perhaps Fridays should be cake days..........although thinking about it it is a long time between Fridays,so perhaps any day ending in a Y should be an official cake day!

Three Counties is a big show Matty. Hope you have comfy shoes! Beautiful setting though.

Architect's been - may have to scale down plan a bit 

Wood for fence delivered - an awful lot of it 

Feeling very stressed after an 'altercation' with two mothers about their children running through the garden. Is it me??? When I politely asked them not to let their children do it I was told  'they're only two' so it's obviously ok for them to treat my property as a park then.  One of them said 'You've got a bit fenced off at the back so what's your problem?' I should have walked away at that point but I'm fed up of being walked over. What chance have the kids got if the parents think it's acceptable to have no respect for other people's property.

Definitely need cake....
