y spreader and a sack of Westland feed weed and mosskiller, fantasic


Superb results and all done in a couple of hours.





If you could invent something...

Posted: 27/11/2013 at 18:14

I would re invent the flymo that collected the grass at the back. I have had one of these for over 30 years, its just popped it clogs and the newer ones collect the grass directly over the motor and blades, making it a very hard slog when it starts to fill. could brush the loose soil off the pots and put them in the dish washer, if you have one.

I have an enormous hose on a reel that doent kink, bought it from Amazon.

Apart from that, any robot that could help would be a good invention, it would do as you ask it, unlike the OH who in his infinate wisdom always seems to know better than me.

I had this samsung tablet last christmas, nice and portable, quick on line, but i dont like the photo's from it, or the way i cant see what i am typing. I wish i had waited till we could afford the ipad.
