Re: Is anyone else reading THAT book?

I've downloaded them on to mu kindle for holiday as well as some other books for back-up (as I really don't think they'll be my cup of tea). What worries me is that we are holidaying on a boat so there will be lots of ropes, chains etc around so don't want OH to get any ideas about acting it out

Not happy bunny

I planted some new potato seeds, the picture on the front showed beautiuful white new potatoes however mine are RED }hairout{ The wrong label must've gone on }hairout{

The idea of having red new potatoes sounds weird..if I leave them to get bigger and older can I use them later in the year?

I cannot understand how anyone cannot look after their animals properly, they look to us for their wellbeing and give us thei...
