    I put in some potatoes pretty late, obviously they went into pretty dry soil but have seemed to do ok since we had some rain. A recent air frost has burned some of the foliage and I'm not expecting much from them before a hard frost comes and kills the tops off completely. Given I always find old potatoes that I didn't plant that growing season so I'm thinking about leaving them in over the winter to harvest next year - genius or terrible idea?

    Fewer avocados, maybe only one coffee a week. Keep up!

    As well as the utterly shit overflow which WILL cause you a problem in the future when the silicone fails you should also query why no heat sheilding was used when soldering the joints. You may be about to redecorate but they shouldn't be leaving huge scorch marks on the wall like that.

    If this person is on the gas safe register, which they absolutely should be if they are doing boiler work, you might want to consider reporting their work to them?

    I also hear "it didn't work with British Rail" a lot.

    It's also not working with the current crop of terrible train operating companies. I wouldn't mind the service being so crap of you weren't paying a small fortune for the priviledge.

    light and thin

    Decathlon do thin gloves that would fit this bill. I often wear this type on cold days.

    Ah I was in Bath over the weekend. Grew up there and used to head along the canal a fair bit. There are some good climbs up form Bathampton, Warleigh and Dundas if you like a hill!

    Is that Dundas in the first pic?

    This is where a shopping list helps you to STICK IT TO THE MAN.

    crack on with a pry bar

    This will create a lot of mess but nowhere as much mess as using a grinder! Smash a tile and get the bar under the edge. If you're "lucky" then the adhesive will be shit and the tiles will fall off the wall when you look at them. Wear boots.
