I note that bouncy castle is not on the list of things that are not in your back yard. Does this mean you have a bouncy castle?

And if you do have a bouncy castle, will there be a Dead Good bouncy castle day occurring soon?

Is all this crap actually in your backyard? If so, may I recommend a garage sale? By the way, you missed-out, 'greenhouse'

Can I hazard a guess that the tags are what are actually in your back garden? Sounds a bit like mine bar the chickens. Rusty garden table with a leg hanging off, bin full of green water and lots of brambles in mine. You could add to the list (which I spotted was in alphabetical order which was helpful) Chimnea with logs. And WOODEN WRITING ROOM. We need these. Do you think we can do a whip round for one each at the next DGPS? xx

Ashley, bouncy castles are for the front yards, so the neighbours may and can be jealous.

Ashley R Lister said...

Tommi, whilst I appreciate the value of making the neighbours jealous, if I had a bouncy castle it would be in my back yard, so I could discreetly play 'Naked Game of Thrones' - a diversion that involves a bouncy castle, an obliging dwarf, and several willing players prepared to dress as wolves, dragons and princes/princesses. :-)

Woah! Nice listing Tex. :)

But I always thought that Ash was the Lister round these parts.

I do note that you have 'fire pit' in the not list and 'disposable barbecue' in the is list. One could argue this point.

Yep Lindsay, the tags are what's in my back yard. I forgot to add weeds and all the snails to the tags.

Ash, I don't have an injury expeditor but if I did it would probably live in the ginnel to prevent the neighbours filling it with crap.

I got really excited at the idea of a 'grown-up' bouncy castle day. Then say what Ash would do if he had one and all of a sudden lost that excitement......

I like Lindsay's ideas on things to be added :-)
