    So it 's mainly tidying the garden we have lawn,flower beds and trees.The idea is to have a nice garden we can enjoy in summer and autumn. I also fancy having a maze and growing automatic plants.I 'm very interested in medicinal plants and their health virtues.
    Our basement needs emptying before we can change it it into a nice and cosy room.This may involve cleaning floor,doors and windows,some painting and refurbishing.
    We use quite a lot new technologies but there are a few things we aren't fluent at .So we'll need your help.
