Im very tempted to try. My undercabinet kitchen lights are horrible fluorescent strips, with no concealment so they blind me, because they are almost at my eye level. I wonder if I replaced them with ...

Keeping him wouldn't be a problem, per se. He doesn't bother me at all, he just goes for Jenna, so he needs to be kept separate from her. I wont keep him long term, I was just hoping that I could star ...

Mr Poulet de Bresse (who was going to be the father of my flock of both pure bred PdB and my DIY crossbred table birds) has started attacking Jenna, so he needs permanent penning, or roasting. This is ...

Love the first 'key feature' of that house - 'Fancy having your horses at home?' - !!! Well why wouldn't you!

When I went to look at the house I am apparently being brave (and insane) to think of ...

Are utility rooms out of fashion these days?

For me, no. But it seems a stupid place to put a washing machine. It's always seemed sensible to me to put it where the washing is. The utility room can ...
