Good morning and welcome to SOS. What is happening with WordPress on the IPhone.  It is driving me mad.  It keeps deleting spaces at end of sentences and returns.  I got into a good routine writing the blog on the works IPhone but I have had to resort to the laptop. Well it didn’t happen!…

Hello and welcome to this weeks SOS…Well the weather is hot, hot, hot again. It is getting a little bit boring now,  unrolling the hose most nights, giving the garden a good dousing and by 1pm the next day the garden is parched. No sign of any hose pipe bans up here, in fact I…

Thank god for Sea Fret is a phrase I never thought I would say. This week most of the days have started off with Sea Fret. This means that the plants have had a coating of moisture on them in the morning so I have only had to water twice this week. The murk usually…

Garden Shed Move

I went a bit overboard when I bought a new shed last year. I bought a 10ft by 8ft shed which was a bit over the top as the garden is only 15ft wide. Getting behind the shed was a bit of a squeeze and there was unused space behind there. There is a 2m…

Week it’s been an eventful week. After 7 years I have decided to step down from a technical service engineer back to a bog standard field service engineer. My stress levels have been through the roof over the last couple of years so I have finally had enough and have decided to take a back…
