Why You Need A Garden Furniture Cover

So (hopefully) you have all been enjoying sitting out in your garden this summer, making the most of the bizarre weather we have had this year, but now it is time to re-pay it for its services. If you only buy one thing for your garden this Autumn, make sure it is a Garden Furniture Cover. Right so I know this may not sound like the most interesting subject to blog about but let’s face it garden furniture and other garden accessories are not cheap so it’s well worth investing a relatively small amount to protect them against the unpredictable winter weather.

Plain and simple they will protect anything that you could possibly have in your garden over the winter so you can enjoy them again when the Summer (eventually) returns.  We have covers to protect everything from:

  • Tables of any shape
  • BBQs
  • Lawnmowers
  • Single Chairs & Sets
  • Swing Seats
  • Chimeneas
  • Benches
  • Rotary Dryers

Disney – Buy One Get One Free

It’s back again! Our fantastic Disney movie buy one get one free has returned. Choose any 2 of your favourite Disney Films on DVD or Blu-ray & get the cheapest for free.

Disney BOGOF

With so many great titles to pick from it got me thinking ‘What is my favourite Disney film of all time?’ – This is an almost impossible question to answer and I’m pretty certain my favourite would change on a daily basis. But when pushed I think I would have to say Toy Story, closely followed by Cars and Finding Nemo. The only thing I can be certain about is that Monsters Inc. will never be my response, can’t stand that film, but I guess one bad film out of so many classics isn’t bad, so I won’t hold it against them.

Which Disney films do you love? Could you pick a favourite? Or is there that one (or more) film(s) you just can’t stand?
