My New Years resolution was to file paperwork as it came in, so far I have done just that, will it last, doubt it.

I have finished, paid  and put away 2014/15 though. Going through 15/16 now so well up to date. My daughter gets hers in by the 31.jan, just by the skin of her teeth.

Hosta will be home soon, I have missed him, he is very good company and great fun to go out with. I feel sorry the holiday didn't turn out as peaceful as they wanted and needed. His OH had worked hard for it.

Clari, how worrying for you, nothing worse than a bounced cheque. One of ours was delayed last week, but then he paid it direct into the bank.

Take care and keep eye on the bruised b**b panda.

weather looking promising for today, sun trying to break through, very boggy everywhere though. Maybe just some greenhouse work.

have a good day folks.

Help! How do I clean out my pond?

I have frogs hibernating under the sludge in mine so be very careful how you pull it out, personally I would wait until everything wakes up. Any slimey blanket weed can be twiddled out with a stick.

Decking help - which boards and why!

If you do go for decking, make sure you lay it so you can get plenty of rat poison under, they love it.

Any paint from B&Q or similar as long as it says for exterior metal, doesnt  have to be spray. Just a bit more fiddly.

I don't soak them either, and I grow them in tall root trainers.

I think Rat as well. Pour some rat poison down the hole then cover well with a piece  of slate or wood so nothing else takes it. Keep putting the poison down until it's still there the next day.

We find now that the only one that works is Neosorexa, the ones you buy in the hardware shops is pretty useless, you need to go to a Farmers store.
