Got a bucket of fertiliser off my father in law earlier,gonna sew it out 2Moro by hand as donít have a spreader,should be ok if I scatter equally right?? Should I soak the lawn first,always thought farmers wanted rain before they put it on fields. Then continue to water few times 2Moro and each day then??

Itís not overly long but maybe should cut it first,maybe rake away moss and loose stones etc,spend hour or two doing some prep.

How did you get on with the fertiliser? Got a few buckets myself and thinking of getting it on to green it up a bit. All moss/fog gone so just left with a few thin/bare patches

Itís getting there slowly,I wouldnít have great patience tho lol. Near two weeks from I raked it to within an inch of its life,sewed grass seed and fertiliser,water it daily as there had been very little rain,not sure if I should be watering it more tho,can you over water grass in weather like this??

Gonna let it grow fairly long,maybe take a light cut off it and ket clippings stay on it,heard this may help,stay tuned....
I await with excitement your next update  :D

I have the hypochlorite down on the yards and pvers. Rinse it off after a few hours or let it settle for a day?
Best to wet the area first and then spray it on. Best to do it at night time and let it soak over night. Wash of next morning.
Power wash or hose off?

Powerhosing not a good thing in my book esp if pavers are just held with sand. Did it once years ago and never again.

Nowadays I just put down diluted hypochlorite 3:1 (deosan red label). Apply in the dry and rinse off a half day later for best results. I just use a watering can with reduced flow spout and I cover some size of an area at not that great an expense. I get a drum for around £18. If you were to cover the same area with weedol or an equivalent it would be £100ís

Use gloves and welly boots and clothes you can handle a stain on as this stuff strips the die outta clothes quickly. Other than that, keep the kids clear and donít mind the smell that will linger for a few days like a swimming pool ...

Why so?

Such is my prowess at this kind of stuff I'm not sure if this comes under gardening or DIY...

I put some brick pavers down 4/5 years back, this year weeds and moss have started to show plus they could do with a clean. Mr Google has provided mostly contradictory answers. Do Powerhose/ or definitely don't powerhose, bleach, washing powder, specially made up solutions..

Any tips.. ta

I got a 25 litre container of sodium hypochlorite from a builder's yard, fourteen quid. Try that.
Where could you pick up a jar of this now?

Any help on this one would be greatly appreciated
 
We were due to fly from Krakow to Belfast on Sunday with Ryanair (two separate bookings), but they cancelled all flights until end of the month from Sunday onwards and communicated this to us on Saturday evening.
 
Panic booked an Easyjet flight to Manchester on the Saturday evening but mistakenly booked it for the following week. In any case, easyjet informed me later that evening that flight was also cancelled anyway as Poland was closing its borders.
 
Anyway, her brother managed to book us Easyjet flights from Krakow to Geneva, Geneva to Gatwick and Gatwick to Belfast on the Sunday, and all of these flights went ahead and we got home eventually.
 
I think the total cost of booking the flights back home came to approx. £1200. Will Ryanair refund/compensate the price of paying for these flights to get home with a separate airline? If not, will Easyjet refund/compensate me the cost of the new flights to get home as they had cancelled the flight that I had mistakenly bought for next week?

I have no holiday insurance, although Ms bogball does
 
Many thanks in advance

That's a real bonus for us. Hopefully the Bosnians beat the Billy boys as well
Absolutely. There is 4 or 5 of their squad that plays in italy, so not sure if they would have to go in to quarantine or isolation upon their return from Italy. Their captain Mark Hamsik also plays in China
