hosed, or should it be hozed?

The back garden tap is now functional. The plumbers reckoned it was a defective check valve that was stopping the water flow. A few minutes later a replacement was fitted and then we had outside water.

I've celebrated by buying a replacement hosepipe.

It's one of those Superhozes. Unlike a normal hose, it weighs almost nothing and despite a sensible length it can fit into a small carry box. I know, it's not like industrial strength gardening, but for us, it's an ideal blend of new technology with practicality.

I didn't know it was possible to get so excited about a hose pipe, but then again, it is orange.

I have hose envy. One of mine - a very long one has a kink which is on the verge of cracking. One of the jobs I really resent - not woman's work and to hell with being politically correct!

I don't think I've seen a hose pipe like that before. Any hose pipe which doesn't kink is a good hose pipe in my book!
