There comes a point, usually about this time of year, that you begin to think that the rusty old table you've been making do with has spilt your coffee on the grass below for the last time, and that the "ouch" bit on the garden chair, which catches your skin if you don't sit down carefully, has nipped your thigh just once too often.
This weekend (starting today) Nottcutts Garden Centres are offering 20% discount on outdoor furniture, so now could be the time to do something about it. The discount also applies to indoor furniture, BBQs and plants, and there's 10% off everything else.
It's the sort of discount that is offered to their Sage Privilege Club members from time to time (membership costs £10/year, offering 10% discount throughout the year, and a certain amount of free refreshment in the café). This weekend they're extending the offer to friends and family - loosely translated here into anyone who's reading this blog.
