Never been tempted to cheat, why risk it? It's taken me 40 years to train this one, couldn't bear the thought of starting again and training another.
Raining here, and I'm feeling a bit chilly, almost tempted to put the heating on.
Secondborn is doing up her house to put it on the market and has laid a new lawn. The following morning she came downstairs to find every section of lawn had been pulled up and overturned. Badgers said I.
It looked like they were coming through next doors fence so I went round and asked if she had had a problem (she obviously had because the lawn was in a terrible state).
She said that she hadn't a problem although she did have lots of badgers as she spent each evening feeding them to encourage them into the garden.
Now I like badgers and would never want to hurt them, but feeding them to encourage them.
