Heard about dogs dying from eating slugs!  2 locally.  Their  slime apparently

Fairy...painting your washing?  When I saw my mum last week she thought I had a big cut on my face...it was a big splash of brown fence paint.  Why  did no one tell me?    Had to laugh tho 

 

Keep lawn looking nice

Chris,,if it's nice and level I would rake/scarify, tine it (fork in all over the lawn to aerate) and reseed bare patches.  Keep it well watered until germination.

Regular mowing, a good feed in spring plus weed and moss treatment.  Don't let it dry out in summer.  A couple of nitrogen feeds in summer too.  

 I top dress too but think if you do the above your lawn will begin to look good

Love that colour artjak ...well worth waiting for 

The fuschia is quite vigorous ...moved it too many times I think in finding the perfect spot for it.  Nice silvery pale green leaves ..delightful.
