Hi everyone,

Here's an invitation to you all to a 'Flagging Party' at my house icon_smile_big.gif

Between now and next Tuesday I have to lay 30 3foot x 2foot flags, build a small wall and clear all the rubbish so I thought it would be a good idea to invite you all over to give a hand, ya know you want to icon_smile_tongue.gif

When: This Friday & Next Sunday
Where: Chez Webbo

Don't worry about the flags, I'll provide them icon_smile_big.gif

Cheers all, I know I can count on you icon_smile_big.gificon_smile_big.gificon_smile_big.gif, Dave icon_smile_tongue.gif

OOops late for work.

In a previous failed marriage, she used to moan at me for not mowing the lawn. I actually volunterred to dig up the whole damn thing, lay concrete and paint it green. Would look like a lawn and would save mowing. LOL. But no she wanted a lawn. I told her you want a lawn = you mow it.

As you can guess marriage did not last too long after that.

But then DO I CARE. (not a lot)

One of the best pieces of advice I was ever given was.

The first time the little woman asks you to do any of those silly jobs, you know the ones I mean, do it straight away and quite happily. This way you make the right impression, BUT make a mess of it. If this method is done propely they never, never ask you again they just do it themselves and leave you free to do the importent things like fishing and going to the pub ect. littleangel.gif DJ.gif
Be lucky,
Del.

Wall up tomorrow, area cleared and levelled and hopefully a few flags in place.

Well the last flag has gone down and yes you've guessed it - it broke icon_smile.gif
The drive looks well though even if I do say so myself icon_smile_big.gif, I've just got to go and buy a replacement now to fill in the one space left.

David, anytime you want a hand give me a shout mate and I'll gladly help you with advice lol, I can just picture it now, your garden covered in YORKSHIRE STONE tongue.gif
