Innovative Solutions

For washing clothes when on holiday we always take pegs and wire coathangers but had forgotten the elastic washing line. However a suggestion from the group about using a spring loaded trekking pole worked a treat even in a stiff breeze. Definately one to remember.

On our return we found that the neighbouring cats had been using our gravel garden as a giant cat litter tray - removed 8 piles of poo !!  Until we get an ultrasonic deterrent, yesterday I purchased from TK Maxx a  pump action water pistol (Water Warrier 'Titan' ) Now just waiting for the supercilious ginger cat from down the road. As Ian says , the inner child is never far from the surface...
