Went to put washing out and found this under rain cover. Any experts know what it is or do I need to post a thread all on its own. OH says not grasshopper,

 WE finally had Christmas arrangements cobfirmed I think. We get baby and parents and daughter and partner weekend before Christmas. Means son 2 who lives with us won't be here as busiest time of year  for him. Then Christmas day we get son 2 late in afternoon. Next year when baby will be fun we get her and others on Christmas day.

Wish my foot was as esily replaced!

Morning All

Good to see you Kate, Have you caught up with the week of nonsesnse(whoops) chat or are you giving it a pass?

Got up this morning to find cat Inkie had been very ill in many places in Foody room, third in a row so it's off to the vet later. It was thought around Septmeber that she may have ingested some garden chemical, but it all cleared up, Don't know where from. So she's off for a check. she also has the flea allergy.

Sunny here but very wet underfoot. Talking of foot came downstairs today without a single OUCH so that's good 

Any bids yet? I bought an old settee off Ebay to re-upholster, Daughters partner got it me for 99p. Think seller wanted a bit more! Still waiting for its new covers!

Water butts

I couldn't find a low cost water butt supplier either. I did buy them and I now have 3 off the house, 1 off the greenhouse and an emergency dustbin supply incase the others run out. I got a cheap plastic dustbin, in the lid was a central stopper, popped it out, inverted the lid and it collected water aswell.

Metered water bills went down quite a bit
