Don't let my wife see that - she'll get ideas. I'm not a great gardener, but I find mowing the grass therapeutic. BB

I got fed-up heaving the lawn-mower around so I told SWMBO the lawn 'had to go'. 'No' says she which brought my reply 'Well you cut it then' Plastic grass arrives shortly!!

Is there a problem with Flickr? I posted the picture which SteveM and WTD have obviously seen, but now when I look it says "picture not found". I have found this happening a lot lately.

I have had the same thing with a couple of mine recently and your link, which worked fine earlier, now shows ‘page not found’. Hopefully just a temporary glitch.
