Re: The difference a bigger kitchen can make

I'm lucky enough to have a big kitchen, which I love, but I'd never knock a kitchen through into a living room or dining room. The previous owners of my house did, which is why it's so big, but if I didn't have space in the living room for a dining table I'd split the kitchen back up. When my ex was...

Re: Spraying cat

A change in behaviour is often caused by a change in circumstances. Cats spray to mark their territory - so has anything happened to cause him to need to mark his territory all of a sudden? As Juzamum says, another cat around (even if not in the house) would be a possibility as would a new pet or ba...

Sadly, I don't fit their profile. Must try harder.

Re: Bloody, Bloody, Weather

Come to Swindon. We had a lovely weekend! It was wet again this morning but the sun is shining as I type this. The primroses were, indeed, amazing this year and the fruit trees are now stunning with their blossom. :iconbiggrin: The gooseberry bush went from being completely bare to having fruit set ...

Re: People are Thick!

Every day I read more and more about cruelty to people and animals and I have come to the conclusion that yes, people are getting more cruel and insensitive and more and more detached from the real world I'm not entirely sure that the world is getting more cruel, just that we hear about it much mor...

Re: Rhubarb recipes ?

Stew up, no sugar, add strawberries towards the end of the cooking time, just to soften them a bit. Lovely.

Re: Where are???

Hi Just popped in to see who was about. New job, quite enjoying it for once! It was supposed to be a three-month contract and I'm still there over 5 months later! Just a shame it's an hour's drive and no chance of getting a train instead! It's also quite long hours (excuses excuses) but nice to know...

Re: Suggested shrubs please?

Are you sure I can't tempt you with a bay tree? You can wash the pollution off the leaves. It's evergreen and you can trim it to shape. What about lavender for colour and smell? I'd second a Pieris which will give an early display, while a spotted laurel could be an option for evergreen interest. Wh...

Re: recycled Materials to make raised beds

I've got a raised border which is edged with lumps of concrete that were lying about in the garden. That doesn't help you much if you don't happen to have useful lumps of concrete lying about. But some of your neighbours might? And I'm sure you'd be very popular if you volunteered to clear their rub...

Re: Bomb crater garden

When I was really young we lived in a third floor flat in the centre of London. At that time there were still some old bomb sites that hadn't been redeveloped (although some of them had more to do with the IRA than the Nazis). One day I was walking down Conduit Court in Covent Garden with my parents...

Re: A cut too far?

I grew up in a third floor flat right in the centre of London. The two floors below us were mainly offices and the ground floor had shops facing outwards. The place was constantly occupied; the offices and shops during the day and the flats in the evening. Crime was very low despite the city centre ...
