Re: P.E bag, beachwear and sock monkey oh my

Very nice! I love the jumper as well. The sock monkey brings back memories. We had a very old one in our house that my aunt had made as a child.

Re: Get organised enough to actually get things done?

I think sometimes, tasks just build up and when you have too many, you get overwhelmed and then you don't do anything.

Re: Container spuds (again!)

I tried this once when I read an article about growing potatoes in tires. It didn't work here but I think it was because it was too hot in the tires.
