Have you got one of those pointy rubbery pen do da's Verdun, I have to use one for my phone, that really is a small keyboard.

I dont think we would ever get the fibre optic BB here, our internet is slow, we are at the end of the line I think.

, mobile phone signals bad too, have to go walking round the garden if anyone phones.



Planted  the daffs in the front garden tubs. Still got loads to go in the new long border, I think I will probably regret it next Spring when I want to get plants out and soggy daff leaves everywhere.

Slow cookers

Just balance the lid so it touches the sides of the bowl.

Slow cookers

I wouldnt be without mine, its always in use. The lid does just sit there and when it starts to bubble the lid bobbles up and down, it makes no difference to the cooking.

You will need to practice with it, mine is a big family sized one and nothing ever takes as long as the recipes say, although mine has 2 heat settings and then a keep warm setting, so if you find your meal is cooked before you are ready, it just stays warm without overcooking.

You dont need to spend a fortune on these, mine cost about 17.00 from Argos, no brand name, and as I said, in use most days.

You can get some good books on ebay or Amazon.

Planting up my grandmother's abandoned grave

Same as down here then, I think the rules are pretty much the same all over. You could get a little imitation stone pot from Amazon or some garden centres sell them, and put a plant in as long as its near the head end. If the tulips are not up by then they will mow over the lot. Snowdrops and crocus are the most popular because they are finished before the strimmer brigade invade.

If you do put anything like a stone pot, place it quick and run as by rights you need to pay a 'monument fee'.

Once placed they rarely remove them.

Just to add, if its one like Kensal Green, left to go wild, you will need to tend regularly to weed it.
