I'm pretty sure some farmers and fishermen might be happy to help with the exterior refurb.

Re: Giving a friend something to use and he does not give it back what would you do

My mother always said "Neither a borrower or lender be". Wise words. Never lend anyone something you can't afford to lose or borrow something you can't replace. OH lent a 'mate' his fairly new metal detector which was returned not working. Of course it was put away when it was returned and only foun...

Cauliflower cheese and chips with beetroot chutney. Very plain and simple but really fine.
