Water pipes come from the floor, skirting board around the bathroom so the unit wont sit flush, been to screw fix 3 times and its still not done. All for a strawberry floating sink. It now leaks cus something isn't on tight enough. We need a wrench with quite a wide jaw, are these expensive?

Jesus its been stressful.

Taps or drain leaking?


Taps. Its all connected, theres just the connecter that got to the tap isn't on tight enough and my hands won't tighten it any further. So a wide wrench is needed.

Good job! Are you treating your lawn or just seeing what nature does?

I'm bang into my garden at the moment, some of the stuff we've done in the past couple of years is really starting to pay off. I've just added a tonne of evergreen shrubs to stop it looking quite so desperate in the winter.

I'm a secret birdwatcher so really want the garden to mature so we can get more birds in there. :simper:

I'm going to give it a little while. This was the first cut of the year and I think I probably set it a bit too low. If not, I'll chuck a load of seed down. When we bought the place a couple of years ago, the previous owners had a trampoline so there was a huge circle of nothing in the middle. If we could fix that, this is a doddle.

Made a storage box out of some old plywood that was sitting in the attic, really pleased with how it turned out. Its only going to be used to store some old tiles and stuff thats clogging up the utility room but it still turned out pretty well I have to say. Pics to follow once its varnished and actually storing stuff.

I've been "renovating" our garden furniture which is well over 10 years old. Need to give it at least one more coat of the stain/varnish combo and then hopefully it will give us another couple of years use before it needs to be retired. Also mowed the back weeds lawn yesterday.

strawberry float gardens, they piss me off. Luckily we don't have one in our house, its all slabbed. When I lived on my own, it was literally the bane of my life.

If I had a garden inside my house i'd be pretty pissed. Gardens should be outside only. :x
