i went on to for the stuff below so i have a few things to be getting on with ...................forgot the glue  and the middle thing is a invisible magnet for a bag

the weather here is crap very dull but not raining at the mo so maybe i will get out and pull some weeds later ,when we got back the lawn was like a hay meadow ready to be cut !!!
