'Top Top Player' ... what the **** is wrong with Top player
'Your West Ham's, Chelsea's, Villa's' ... There is only one, why not say 'teams like'
'My Bad' ... You are not a 5 year old, its as if people think it deflects a mistake
'Several Caveats' ... You dont sound smarter by replacing the word condition
'Jog On' 'End of' ... You are not Danny Dyer
'Kick on' ... Just lame
'In the clubs DNA' ... what DNA, clubs dont have DNA
'Number 10' ... Been reading inverting the Pyramid? Attacking Midfielder isnt it?
'Spirit of the team' ... as if we invented team spirit

I could go on...

Let's face it, it never snows but once every 10 years, it rains but once every 300 days... how hard can it be?

Places I like are:

Days- Near the Pier. A big all you can eat restaurant with Chinese, Indian, English food + lots more.
http://www.daysrestaurant.com/brighton

Little Bay- If you want a quiet sit down meal. Amazing steak.
http://www.littlebay.co.uk/

Smokeys- Not well known but does American food in big portions. Pulled pork, ribs etc. Amazing food. Near the Grand.
http://www.smokeysbrighton.com/

You also have your usual like Nandos and Gourmet burger plus the Pizza place 'Donatellos' which is popular. Lots more but there my recommendations.

Its supposed to be 14 but when you factor in the windchill and the damp it goes back to zero again. Not when you are shovelling pea gravel though.

I know I shouldn't smile at your adversity Elgin, but I can't help it.

Mostly because you tend to bring these things on yourself, and you're so honest about that.

No wonder your missus has gone away for a break and the neighbours are watching you from behind their net curtains. I suspect you provide them with quite a lot of entertainment.

Does the pea gravel mound look like that pile they constructed in Close Encounters of the Third Kind?

It really does, only much bigger and much more demoralising. I couldn't face shifting much today and had to go to Inverness anyway which took most of the daylight hours. Still can't fit either of the cars on the drive as the pile refuses to get smaller. I think the neighbours must think we live in some sort of Tardis as I'm always carrying stuff in but never out. They were probably all cursing me last night as it rained on my tarpaulin and damp proof membrane which seemed to amplify what was probably the noise of light drizzle into something which sounded more like some sort of particularly heavy monsoon.

On the basis that these lights are only going to work after a proper recharging, I think this maybe a fatal flaw in your plan elgin.

Ha, i wish. Got fecked off at several points and then diverted onto easier projects. Mrs Elgin will definitely kill me when she gets back, but frankly the Urals are preferable to shovelling 500 more barrowloads over the equivalent of pure clay.

I fear the standard 330 days of the year overcast grey that you're accustomed to aint going to do it

In Glasgow that colour is on the Dulux Rainbow Colour Charts.

Indeed it's so popular they paint houses throughout the nation in what is catchingly called 'suicide grey', albeit with detailing in 'depression dull', a uniquely complementing shade exclusive to the nation of Scotland.

My inheritance.

Edit Sorry I think you previously said 10?

Cheers mate, yeah 10. Instead of grading the clay away from the house and let the not inconsiderable rainwater run into the burn at the back, they angled it so it all runs towards it. So i have to put more pea gravel at the house end so when i lay the bearers for the decking hopefully the grooves in it will take it away down that way. Seems to have used quite a bit to cover a very little area though :eek: Hopefully i've done the measurements right cos i'm fecked if i'm going to be ordering any more of the pissing stuff.

Did they rob it out the shipyards?

Hard work. I was considering doing my drive and I think it was 1 ton covers 15 sq m/yds. But (on another 'project') a garden bed I got a ton bag og small stones/gravel and I only got about 10-12m cover at about an inch depth.

Yeah if it helps my garden is @32ft x 22ft and the woman said i'd need 6 tonne to give it a reasonable covering. I just got more cos of the slopes and cos we live in a cloud.

You should have plenty mate. That works out an average 4 and 1/2 inch depth.
Approximately how many barrow loads do you think it will be?

Is she really coming back or is she under the gravel?

I'm not sure elgin wants to know the answer to that.

Not sure. Its more like 12 inch depth at the house end and then i'm going to angle it back to the fence and just sprinkle whats left and hope its flat enough for the bearers. Was going to do raised decking and just leave the clay but it looked too tricky and the dogs would probably get trapped under there or crushed by something collapsing so went for the 'easy' option.

How much cat shit can it cover?

Is there a ratio where depth of gravel covers up your own cat and the neighbours cat?

Edit:- their shit not the whole cat.:D

Bloody hell! My barrowloads get progressively lighter as the days wear on for some reason, then i reach 'feck this' point and come inside.

Don't blame you and rats also love the space under raised decks apparently. It would have looked alright with just gravel.
