Kt, believe or not I agree about weddings although I was brought up in a different era, a Church, local posh Cafe then In laws for a while, honey moon two years later in Scarbrough and that was top end. Bottom end would be Registry Office home and spam sandwiches no honey moon. Expectations are so different these days. With a wedding coming up for Granddaughter a two day affair at County Hotel the cost has to be shared among close family so I do know it aint cheap. Loving my Granddaughter I give willingly, the last few years they have worked hard to stand still, at least it will be a lasting memory unlike a pile of bricks that will go with the next owner.
Gardens I had were hard work make do and mend plus DIY, money? Are you kidding, beg steal borrow, we had morgages and other things more needed. Gardens fed the family until the time there was spare cash, the problem being once you had the rhythm in your gardening bones spending on decking fountains and Gnomes seemed a pure waste of money and time. I am thinking my writing on here not now needed, double digging? Mulching? Planning years ahead? What is he talking about, it has to be quick easy maintinence free these days, out of my league, £25.000 on a garden, I could do a world cruise for that but then I did, we called them Troopships.
