I just gave myself a shock. I looked at my calendar and realised how close to Christmas we actually are! There"s so much more to do with work and home before the big day that it just seems a mountain to climb to get it all done. But as well all know, mountains can be climbed and I have my best h ...

Do you think panes of glass were called so because they are a pain to put in? I"m sure this isn"t the case but it does make me wonder sometimes. However, putting in panes of glass in the shed over the weekend was actually quite easy and so was the right kind of pane if you like! The putty di ...
