Spring is hinting and being a nature lover I am excited about my first English emergence from Winter in a long time.

Thanks Quoll. Will check out Lloyds for the iodine and order some of those iodine wipes. Also Ecover after I finish the Surcare I just bought. (Really can't stand perfumed laundry.)

Suitcase security.

Ahead of our trip, we want to buy suitcases. A lot seem to have side zips as well as zipping around the main case.

Goldfish friendly pond in Brisbane?

We want to release some goldfish into a pond.

We don't want them to go into a tank as they've been raised in a pond and are happy little weed dwellers (rather than UV light lovers.)

Re: Cool and quirky shopping websites.
