I've always loved gardening since a child, we have our gardens gravelled now but plants still need attending yearly and I also find reading very relaxing come evening time.

Tyler that would take some doing in embroidery but such a lovely talent...the lady did his portrait in pencil and it took 2 week to do, sorry about the glare on it from the light.

My back garden green cordyline is now doing a new shooting also but that's still nice and healthy.

I have 3 Cordyline plants in the front garden, two green cordylines and one "Red star" and they was growing lovely until last years winter hit them hard and with this summers heat the Red star leaves went dry and then new shootings was coming off each one and they never flowered although they reached 6ft in height, so I had my hubby cut the stems across, knifed out some of shoots from the stem and then left so many to each stem for good maturity and they're coming on great.

Anyone know how to remove labels from glass jars?  

We always keep unperformed baby wipes in the home as they're great with cleaning certain things and I just rub these on glass labels until they're wet and just get them off :)

I've never had a dish washer...I just run the hot water in the sink and use this scourer pad below and it's filled with washing up liquid (Anti-bacterial)

Hi Anette,

I used to have stomach pains as a child and was rushed in hospital and also got them in my teens and since being older and they turned out to be stomach spasms ...I take spasm tablets 3 times daily now and have no trouble plus also diagnosed with Chronic IBS.

I really hope she improves :)
