    • Welcome to our site which we use as a general dumping ground for stuff we want to share. We hope you find some of it useful. We live in the heart of the UK countryside with our kids, surrounded by hills, apple trees, unfinished tree houses, unflown rc gliders, dusty classic cars, and even dustier surf boards (there is never enough time when you have kids). Every year we try (and fail) to grow veggies..... well you have to, don't you? OK, I guess you don't, but we did!
