A few months ago I had a new fence put up along the length of one side of the garden. It is much smarter than it's predecessor, but it's shiny, newness has been shouting out 'Look at me! ' ever since it arrived.
Today I painted it black and immediately it leapt backwards and the garden apeared to double in width. This is precisely what I had hoped to acheive and I feel quite smug :)
