      Yeah I thought about it and gardening isn’t all that bad really. I just don’t like it! But I know I like picking veggies so i thought growing my own, like having a teenie little patch to grow some lettuce or courgettes would be a good way to get me into it & it would be good to get outside more often! And yes, of course spending more time with you :) xXx

    different web browsers and I must say this blog loads
    a lot quicker then most. Can you suggest a good internet
