I have 2 water butts and when it rains a lot to stop extra water flowing out and losing it, I re use all the empty water bottles I drink 2ltr or 5ltr and fill them up for spare water and them take down garden to use in watering can when needed.

Hi there TT.  Doctor has said that they were not sure but put it down to tenderness and muscle strain - overdoing it again.  Helping with the scaffolding and doing too much digging, etc, didn't help at all.

Brilliant idea AT just used stones like I got to put round a pond.  Was thinking of doing just that, although the stones I have are a little smaller.

Evening all.  Much too tired to do anything today.  Raining on and off.  After lots of litter picking yesterday at volunteering for Conservation Day at Sholing Valley Study Centre now have backache (should be resting after stay in hospital).  Didn't realise litter was as heavy as it was until trudging back to centre.  Phew!!

Just been catching up on thread.

Off to bed now as very tired.   Night all.
