I've had one for a couple of years. Don't think it does much, though it is a good bright light to work by - I have it in my "office" above the desk. But for those who get SAD, or tired in the winter when light levels are low, ask your Dr to get you tested for Vit D levels. I was very defic...
One of my favourites is curried parsnip soup. Sauté some onion, add chunky diced parsnip and potatoes and a tsp mild curry powder. Cook with lid on 5 mins, then add veg or chick stock, season, simmer til veg are tender. Remove half the veg, liquidise the rest of the soup then return the veg chunks. ...
We not expecting her to manage on that, but yes, she needs accommodation, utils, food etc and to run a car. We are looking at a possible house share where the rent includes bills, at £350 a month. It's all the other stuff that's hard to estimate. We want her to have enough to afford at least a bit o...
My daughter has just been offered an apprenticeship in countryside management in Somerset. I am thrilled for her and proud she got it as the competition was stiff. For the first year she'll get paid just £148 a week. Obviously we'll supplement it a bit for her, but can anyone give me a realistic ide...
Lovely! My fave jam, damson.

No hedgerow ones round here, sadly Enj...

These days I don't bother, just use what I use. OH's car gives a continuous readout of fuel consumption, and we find ourselves c...
Mine sold off an entire set of Ordnance Survey Maps recently - sadly I didn't spot them before all the southerly ones were gone and it was mostly Scottish ones left
But well worth looking out for
I don't bother with anything fancy, just peel and core (put in water so they don't go brown), slice into chunky slices, pop into plastic bag and freeze. They are fine used in crumbles or cooked down to apple sauce as needed. The only thing I do do is shake them into a thin layer in the bag and freez...
We've halved our home insurance cost by moving to a new company. But it remains to be seen if we are still happy should we need to claim....
Lots of cheap quotes out there by companies with appalling reviews
I think the LED bulbs are far better than the old eco bulbs - they do come on immediately, use very few watts and give a good white light, but they are horribly expensive. I expect the price will drop as they catch on.
Hadn't thought of looking on ebay - will do that now.
