    Having a garden is a nice thing, but it takes a lot of looking after. Having a water pool there is lovely, but of course, it takes a lot of maintenance.

    Mind you, I used to try and earn the odd 50p mowing a neighbour's lawn.
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!
