Re: Would you have dated your SO in high school?

No. I was at a girls' school and he was at a boys' school, in different countries!

Even if we were at the same school, I don't think we would have dated. I was too focused in my studies to worry...

Re: Tefal Actifry - anyone got one?

We went through 2 Actifrys in 1 1/2 years.

First one - the plastic bit of the filter broke within a month of purchase. We were able to get a new one as it was under warranty.

Re: Whats the longest distance you have driven for one single event.

My record is quite lame - from Birkdale to Coolooba Cove, 233km, a 3-hour drive, to visit friends. It seemed like an eternity with two little monsters who kept asking if we were there yet every 5...

Re: Advice please on Landscaping

What's included in 'planting'? Do you mean cost of trees, shrubs, some feature plants, and labour to stick them in the soil? When I was at the farmers' market on the weekend, I had a look at prices...

Re: Advice please on Landscaping

It's true, lawns are great for kids but the mowing isn't always fun. We've got over 1/2 acre of grass so I know... I don't mind big open areas but hate going around obstacles in the garden.
