I will admit to being totally blown away by all of the products I saw last Thursday at the Marks and Spencer A/W 13 launch. It is no secret I am a massive M&S fan, one of my favourite pink cardigans is now 10 years old and still looks as good as new which [...]
Approximately 60% of water supplies in the United Kingdon are hard, meaning they have substantial deposits of calcium and magnesium. While these elements are harmless to humans and animals, they can play havoc with your home and cost you money.

Well mine in all honesty is let to do much as it pleases in as much as I am not a constant gardener but one who dabbles now and then. Thank goodness the forsynthia knows that! She gets a good cut mid summer and again in the autumn and we get on just fine.
