Request: bistro style/ glass metal garden table (Hall Green B28) - Hi, my table has unfortunately had its day. To upcycle it wud probably cost more to do than to buy a new shop one unfortunately. Would be very grateful to receive one ghats being gifted or smaller thinnef versions of one? Many thanks and blessings Nadex Request: click together faux decking 'tiles' (Hall Green B28) - Hiya, just wondered if maybe, on the off chance someone is may be looking to gift any left over tiles they have after finishing their project? Next year I'm going to have a big oc a garden revamp I hope, in an effort , as I don't really go anywhere other than my garden as havd chronic illness. I'd live to turn into my own version of a little sanctuary to be shared with wildlife. If u come across my other 'wants' u will see a bit of a theme gorging, altho tbh am also trying to do the same inside also. Can't get normal decking and the area I want to cover is only very small, @ 2m x 2/3 m if that. Wud becreally grateful to receive any 'leftovers' and altho will request separately any other garden items like bulbs, colourful wooden furniture paint for bench, shed etc, ghjngz I can upcycle into something different wux also be great...to make 'interesting' 'sculptures'..well , a bit ambitious with that one..let's say statues or ornaments lol. More unusual the better really, wall plaques, ceramic pots etc, plants. Anything and everything as also Wang to create a raised veg patch as unable to bend or dig. On that subject don't know If I'm allowed to ask this so forgive me Admin if not, but am looking fof someone now to paint my fence b4 bad weather and to hammer a few nails into my shed .. will be looking nxt spring for someone to know my small lawn on a fortnightly basis also ..if anyone's interested in doing both ?Wud be great for a teenager..obvs WILL NOT be doing as a volunteer of course! Many thanks and blessings Nade x. Request: small garden table..bistro/mosaic style (Hall Green B28) - Hi everyone. I have these pictures in my head as to how I'd really love my garden, and my flat to look. Nothing posh, if anything a bit Boho, Hippy etc. Am tryin to decorate a square meter at a time as that's all energy I have due to illness. I saved for the paint..tho cud still do with some exterior furniture colours. I've got curtains ready and new settee covers. Now however, have run out of funds..well, no, actually.. my... 'Flat and Garden ' desperately trying to make it how I want it fund' ..is of course now having to go, along with every other poor bugger's money to utility bills instead. So here I am ..altho tbh I've always preferred recycling and upcycling items to make them 'my own' rather than spend wat little I get on Disability on new; sparkly, usually badly made and always overpriced ' in/fashionable' items with no history. I believe soo much more can be re-used or re-purposed. So, cap in hand, I'm adding a list of various items I would really LOVE to be considered for , if by chance you are thinking of letting them go and passing them on to begin a new life. Maybe you might see this and come across my 'wanteds' but not have any of the items . You might tho then realise that you have got some things along the same line..ie. garden items, decorative garden and home things and maybe even just a little Boho , hippy or item..like throws, lanterns, fairy lights and so onnn.. u think I might like after uv seen the sort of bits n bobs I'm looking for.... Ya NEVERR know! Lol. Thank u for taking the time to read my waffle..I will repeat this on each 'wanted' I post. In advance THANK YOU and many blessings Nade x Free: VET DIET.. URINARY Wet food for cats with bladder/ struvite (Hall Green B28) Gifted - Hi, my cat Farah, can ONLY eat a prescription diet of URINARY..REDUCTION OF STRUVITE STONE WET CAT FOOD. Last month Zooplus, where I buy her food from On line had run out of her usual, so I got her another brand. ..SMILLA. Its actually a German brand ,with EXACTLY the same ingredients and purpose as the Purina and Hills one . I ALWAYS buy her the SMILLA dry food as again , after researching ..same ingredients ,abt 1/3rd price and she loves it. . Soo, anyway thought wud have no problem with the Smilla wet. I was wrong! Fazza loves gravy..as u can see this is more of a solid paté, its also TURKEY flavoured, not chicken as I thought . She doesn't like it . For ant cat lover/guardian that has to buy this Urinary prescription food, u will know its NOT CHEAP! I certainly don't want it to go to waste.. I have an opened box with 4 'tub' things left unopened in it, plus two more full boxes of 8 x 100g... FREE to any Cat that is ON THIS PRESCRIPTION URINARY WET FOOD !! PLEASE, PLEASE, UNDERSTAND !!!!!..CANNOT BE GIVEN TO CATS WHO ARE NOT ON THIS PRESCRIPTION DIET !!!! I CANNOT STRESS THAT POINT ENOUGH.
