I had a mortgage statement the other day and I have finally started to pay it off.  :D
After paying gazzillions a month for the past 3 years I think I have now payed off 24 quid.

Found all Johns books at my Dads house.  :tongue2:

Cut your cling film and tin foil in half then keep a long and shot roll of each, amazing how many times you just need a small amount.
That and a microwave cover - to save on cling film :-)

Actually I don't mind - there's a thing called public lending rights who pay me a huge 6p when someone borrows a copy of my book. Nearly 200 last year!! So keep on reading. :)
Check out our books - ideal presents

when growing plants always grow some extra ones to swap with other gardeners simple bartering is always more fun than spending money
