You need a good sieve, and a load of compost or farm yard manure. Sieve out all the nasty bits. Fork in the compost to a depth of 15cm or 6 inches,and then plant into it.

You won't need a gym membership this year.

My mum said she was glad when my brother got his own place (at 30) because when he was out late,she wouldn't wait up for him,but also she never went to sleep until he was back in the house.

She never worried about me at 18 when I was at Uni in Manchester... she never knew what we got up to.
