Use sticky copper tape around door frames and any inlets you might see them come through. I use that and around the rim of my plants. Stops them going in the pots. Especially Hostas. They love that plant.

Sky viuchers needed

Tash in Southfields
Has anyone got a friends and family sky voucher I can have. My contract is coming to an end and they want £80pm for just TV no broadband. Otherwise will consider migrating to Virginia who supply my broadband. Any views on Virgin TV out there??
Terry R
The only problem we have with Virgin is no subtitles on the films which we older folks need. They say they are reliant on those who provide the films to them.
Jane F
It's worth telling Sky that you're leaving, unless they offer you a better deal.  When I did this, they fell over themselves cutting my monthly subscription and also gave me £50 credit!!!

Thank you for these lovely ideas. I'll add them to my research. As you say travel would be an issue as he can't ride a bike. He has dyspraxia so has always shied away from our attempts to get him to cycle.
