    What else could we put there? We don't really want to put stones back there, as it looked really awful when we moved in. Really messy. Our direct neighbour wasn't very happy with the loose stones ending up in their half and on the pavement or on the road.

    Everyone else around us has grass, or a combo of nice boarders and shrubs. I'm open to suggestions though, at the moment I'm still in the preparation stage, so nothing is set in stone ;)
    Set it all in stone.

    I think we might be envisaging a larger section to deal with.

    Updates required.

    Yeah, it's only a small triangle of land, 2m at its widest end, about 5m long.

    LPG gas is the answer https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=2XBQbS0ACm4

    Or just grow some biceps.

    Not sure how biceps would help unless he stands upside down and attaches his head to the ground.

    Watching Eat Well for Less for some reason and one of the family enjoys a breakfast of Nutella on bread topped with a fried egg.

    I had to read that twice to make sure I wasn't having a stroke. No doubt they also call Raiders, ROTLA and Aliens, Aliens 2.

    Could that be nice? It's so brazen that it must actually taste terrific.

    Not even Nutella on toast. Nutella on bread.

    Nutella is best on bread. I can actually visualise it now. A nice thick wedge of soft crust bread (white - it has to be white with a fried egg), a thick impasto smeg of nutella and crowned with a fried egg.

    Dunno how you would eat it. Too soft for cutting. Roll it up like a fucking swiss roll and down it in one I should think.

    There's no way you could spread Nutella on bread, it would be ripped to shreds.

    I've definitely ate a Nutella sandwich in my youth. It's doable.

    @Rum_Monkey There's a lightness of touch required. If you go hard at it you'll just tear through it like value toilet paper.

    A pro tip is to punch the bread once or twice so it's compacted and more open to receiving the sweet nutty topping without fragmenting.

    Sourdough toast with green pesto, poached egg and grated parmesan.
    That's my trying to be a foodie top tip.

    Yeah, it's definitely doable on decent bread... Wouldn't fancy trying it with a regular sliced pan though.

    I've got a craving for a slice of sourdough with a nice even layer of Nutella, topped off beautifully with a sunny side up egg.

    It's the general rule I go by for everything. Go soft, spread the sweetness.

    I tried to buy a couple of things from Amazon the other day and it kept trying to force me to either pay 5 for delivery for one item, despite my order being over the 20 free delivery limit or accept student prime to get it with free delivery. Which I don't want, so fuck you Jeff.

    Bought it elsewhere.

    Both items were from amazon, but one looked to be from Amazon EU. Is this due to brexit, or are amazon just being twats?


    Also, never mind this nutella stuff, has anyone tried the costco variant of it? No palm oil (think it's sunflower instead) and it tastes nicer (IMO!), since it's more hazelnutty. It's also easier to spread so wunty won't have to abuse his 'bread'.

    The bread abusers shouldn't even be a thing, why would you not want it on toast?

    I had to google impasto - very apt. I've learnt something.

    Why is it that the so called leading tech companies like EBay and Facebook have websites that look and feel like dog shit?

    Because people dont like change. It holds back every single moderately popular website.

    Not without good reason though.

    I consider myself a power user of stuff like excel (VBA programming etc). But many of the changes added in recent versions are change for changes sake rather than actually improving the software or functionality.
