    hi ‘ye mighty oak’
    add this to the style.css (at the end):
    .textwidget {background-color:#f2f2f2 ;padding:10px 10px 10px 10px; margin-left:88px;}
    padding:10px 10px 10px 10px; – clears some space around the textwidget content – sequence of the numbers refer to: top right bottom left – you can adjust the colors if you like.
    margin-left:88px; was needed to prevent the textwidgets and their background color to squeeze out under the article if the post is shorter than the sidebar ( see this on your homepage right now, last entry in textwidgets).

    Thats great and works a treat! Thanks for your help
