Did you toast your Brother-In-Law for his present ? .

Shame, such nice weather for it, I had another cycle this morning and seen some big carp cruising up the tidal stretch, I stood and watched them for a few minutes just thinking about fishing for them 😆 had my exercise now I'm in for the rest of the day.

 

Thinking about getting one of these to play with in the garden while on lock down and might be good for getting boilies out in the future 😂😂🙄

8 down 4 left rainbow brick lol

Well done you are the winner 👏👏👏👏😁🥇

It took some effort to get that right, my daughter added that little rainbow nugget, otherwise we had to not make every brick colour non connected ie blue couldn't be next to another blue 

Concept art at its finest 😂

My Wife used to collect rose petals from the Rose Garden in Regents' Park 60years ago , and made the same perfume - beautiful .

A loud scream of excitement - priceless ! .

You should try living with 2 girls wow they can be louder than a motorhead concert, 😱😜

Well done though it's nice to be nice, you might get some funky after shave made 👍

Desperately trying to get our "garden" (for want of a better description!) sorted out. Two years of basic neglect has seen it overrun with weeds/thistles etc. It's become an embarrassment. Spent the best part of Sunday starting to clear weeds. As I mentioned, thistles everywhere, and my hands are literally torn to shreds pulling them out without gloves (don't ask 🙄). It's starting to take shape, but still plenty to do, including re-painting the old shed. I'm waiting for new gloves to arrive before carrying on though!!!

Keep at it mate and try and keep on top of it and you’ll soon see the benefits of your labour 😬💪🏼😎

I've definitely got a bee in my bonnet with it now Steve. Despite the pain, I got immense pleasure pulling those brambles up. Looking to buy a rotivator to help with the bigger section at the back of the garden, which is in a really bad way. Would like to clear it completely and start again, planting some nice shrubs there for a nice splash of colour. Have got a really nice barbecue permanently installed and with the work that we've done already I can start using it again. Seriously can't believe how bad we've let it go. Embarrassing to be honest. 😢😢😢

That looks a long , interesting garden , Smufter .

I had a 125 ft. back garden once , but we never did manage to do what Stevo suggests " keep on top of it " , we could only manage 1 section per year .
