That's a good tip: raising the legs. The table's so posh that it has little screw feet things, like on the bottom of a fridge, and so it's off the ground. So, i will make sure the feet of the chairs aren't sat in a puddle. Thanks, Birdy13.

Thanks - this has solved such a big issue for me. I used to get mad at my son for not putting away in the shed early enough. How daft. Thanks Daintiness.

I got £98 of plants for £10 a couple of years ago at B & Q. It was a Monday and they seem to pick their day to reduce. The man said that they had ordered too many plants and needed the room. Among my stash were Christmas roses for 10p! I felt so good. i've never stopped looking and have picked up so many bargains.

Thanks, Dove. I think it is real teak. I can't remember what it said on the box... It was expensive, the dearest one in B & Q and better than what they have now. I bought it in the sale of course! It is hard and has brass bits on the matching brolly and plaques on the back of the chairs! Ha, I was so proud when I bought it all. I knew that it would last for years and was a good buy. It went a black colour after a couple of years. Why did it do that. My son power washed it this year, wich he hadn't as it didn't feel good after that but got the honey colour back. I sanded it and teak oiled it. I remember a man at B & Q saying that he didn't bother using teak oil anymore. Great, I'll leave it out But why did it go black?
