Does anyone know of a website like Mumsnet that caters for the more mature person? My Mother (you know the one) is looking (don't laugh) for a certain type of wellington boot (Gerdeners) and she can't find them anywhere. I told her I'd have a look for her but the search engine isn't bringing anything up on wellies that I can find. Thanks. R.
Have I found just the site for you! www.gardenersworld.beeb.com (search in the gardening products shopping bit for clothing and then boots) They seem to have some snazzy styles for the fashion conscious gardener.
Rhiannon - do you think perhaps she'd prefer a pair of gardeners wellies, afterall you can get some corkers from the gardenersworld website? OK, perhaps not, so I shall persevere and try to track down these illusive Gerdeners. I never realised there was so much variety in the welly department!
Rhiannon, your mum might like to try usenet - uk.rec.gardening would be a good place to start.
You should be able to subscribe via your ISP (or her ISP) and download messages every time you dial in.
You might like to look here for more info about the group. It's a very friendly group, low flame, low spam, IIRC and able to answer most questions.
And yes, I have lurked there in the past. If you want to know anymore about usenet, please feel free to ask. I've been hanging out in various groups for a long time (read more than 6 years!) sad internet addict that I am! I do change them according to the info I need e.g. have posted to car newsgroups when I need help on car electrics as well as breastfeeding ones when needing help with that.
Rhiannon - this has come as a great relief to me, I was beginning to have nightmares about 'Gerdeners'. When I searched on Google it came up with no matches and asked me if i meant Gardeners - oh how I laughed.......... sorry, I'm off to bed now it's been a long day!
