Today we managed to put the cover on the polytunnel with the help of James and David. First I built a bit of supporting framework on the inside out of 100mm x 100mm fence posts, we have three posts going vertically and then two going horizontally with a lap joint in the middle. The timber […]
I am a big follower of Positive Money and their article ‘Our money system guarantees that inequality will get worse – Here is the evidence‘ is absolutely spot on. The problem is that the Government and the Bank of England actually have no power over how much money is created in this country, as outlined in […]
Today we finished digging the grass up to clear a space for the polytunnel, and then managed to put the frame up. That is stage 1 complete but it was a little too windy to attempt to put the cover on today so we will come back and attempt that in a week or so.
So today we picked a really nice selection of veggies from our allotment, it’s really great to be able to eat all this freshly picked food and it always tastes fantastic in comparison to the stuff you get in the shops. Today we’ve got various types of peppers, fennel, flat custard squash, crookneck squash, cucumbers, carrots, […]
Been down digging up some veg today and dug up this whopper carrot, one of the bigger ones we’ve managed to grow so far. They don’t seem to have grown as well as the ones we grew last year at our old house, hopefully we will have better luck on the allotment next year. Personally […]

So after many MANY hours of hard work I managed to disassemble our washing machine, replace the bearings and put it all back together again. This made me immensely happy as for £30 and about 6 hours of my time I thought I had brought our washing machine back to life and saved us many […]
My web-hosting provider came up for renewal today and after shopping around a bit I decided to switch providers to Arvixe because they were much cheaper and also offer many more options that I am hoping to make use of in the near future.
Yesterday I went to see Oblivion starring Tom Cruise and Morgan Freeman. It’s hard to talk about this film without ruining it so I won’t say much other than I thought it was pretty good and the storyline really threw me as the twist wasn’t what I was expecting. Was interesting to see Nikolaj Coster-Waldau in […]
So whilst most people enter the new year with the claim that they are going to get in shape this year, crack out a few workouts in January and then tail off to nothing. I decided I was going to commit to the cause and actually get myself in the best shape I have ever […]
