  1. I have checked my area again. Those in the "flush" that were going to sell have sold. The few remaining are just sitting festering. No new properties on the market and only about half a dozen up for sale. Normally there would be 25 - 30 on the market.
  2. Don't the new estates have to have a certain amount of social housing? You could be in hock for the rest of your life with your mortgage and still get the dregs living all around you.

  9. I didn't know you were ooop North that far. Apparently berries grow really well, particularly raspberries.
  10. Cherries are child's play if you can run fast enough to beat the birds.
  11. I've bought cheap trees from Wilkos several times and they have thrived, even the last, lonely, sad one in the container that looked like they needed the kiss of life. In fact, one of the best trees I have is a Cox's Orange Pippin, courtesy of Wilko, which is lovely.
  12. I realised a couple of years ago that I didn't have enough life left to bother wasting any of it on people I didn't like and/or idiots. This is serving me quite well.
  13. I've only been shielding for less than a week and I'm ready for ripping the doors off with my teeth. I have no idea how the people who have been shielding for months/years are coping. Maybe your brain dies a bit and you get used to it.
