All set to get out there and get hedge cutting. But, of course, the minute I finish cleaning the house, it starts tipping down! Rolling Eyes I know I could have said to hell with the housework, but there is nothing more depressing than sitting in a house surrounded by piles of washing and enough cat hair and cigarette ash to plant taters in.

I did manage to try out my newly acquired recipe for homemade weedkiller - it works a treat! When I'm on my laptop I will post some pictures.

Oh do give over! Wouldn't do me any harm if I did. It is only white vinegar and, if you are using it on paths, a tablespoon of salt. Front drive smells like a chip shop. Laughing Laughing
