You know, this book is really taking shape.
I'd totally read it.
Just needs a catchy title, how about... Forum fortes? Hmmm. Surely someone can do better?

He. Is. Gorgeous! What a fabulous gnome, Disco Dave!! I'm more than a little impressed

I'm afraid that my hubby and I have only just got back in the house, having FINISHED THE GREENHOUSE!!!!! Wahooooo!
Trouble is, it was dark and so I couldn't take a picci. Promise I will ASAP.

Can I also recomend the wonderful article SwissSue has posted. I'm thrilled to see I don't need extra heat to have fun in there all year round, thank you!!

DiscoDave, paint your own gnome? You've GOT to post the photos!!! I used to work in the art dept at Alton Towers, as a leaving gift they have me an Umpa Lumpa from the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory ride. He serves as our gnome

Verdun, I'm just so excited to have somewhere I can tinker in the garden whilst keeping warm, especially now i have an ever growing bump! And it's nearly seed sowing season. Woop woop!

Today's job, glazing the frame between showers... I promise to post photo once done.

Are you really really desperate to get rid? Nettles are really great for wildlife, ladybugs love 'em. But, of course, if you've got other ideas for the space, just keep pulling them up.

This whole thread has made me feel sooo much better.
Have bonkers neighbours on both sides, one is soooo uptight about her boundary line that she complained to the guy we had in doing our fence EVEN THOUGH its 3 inches on our side.
Grumble grumble.
What made it worse, she doesn't tend to her garden at all. No problem, personal choice and all that, but when the brambles, bind weed and nettles sneak their way into our garden and she STILL has nerve to complain.
Worse still, I had a month or two off gardening with the weather being cold etc etc and she told my other neighbour that I'd let the garden go and it doesn't look very good anymore.
Still looks better than hers.
Feel better now
