    The clouds are finally beginning to dissipate. Slowly, the sun is emerging from its winter hibernation. The temperature is, at long last, creeping its way towards 20 ℃. What does this mean for the Great British public? Friday evenings and Saturdays spent in beer gardens with a cold, refreshing pint in hand; complaints from employees and school children alike - ‘is it even legal to make us work/study in this heat?’; and, of course, the long-awaited return of summer barbecues with friends and family.

    5 Decorative Fencing Ideas

    As you take a brisk morning stroll around the block to get the day’s newspaper, a bottle of milk or a loaf of bread, you’ll probably walk past a fair few houses. All are fairly nondescript, there’s nothing special about any of the homes you see; they all look exactly the same.
