I was made redundant last August and as we had moved away from Cornwall for work in the first place 12 years ago we decided to use the payoff to get ourselves back down here where both our hearts and our kids all were. We have rented a lovely place that's ideal for us but the payoff has just about g...
so do I as it cost me a grand total of £2.49 for a load of screws. Everything else is off freecycle or recycled from something else including an old boat. Maybe not as pretty as some but as it is hidden in the trees and the hens couldn't care less does it matter?becks77 wrote:, love the run
