Re: Discarded face masks - the new litter problem

We get carrier bags of rubbish dumped in the open fields near our house, now the mask problem.

Re: Chrysanths and gro-bags

Thank you for your reply LL.

Mo - the chrysanths have done reasonably well. I am cutting them for the weekend, when it is Ted's anniversary.

Re: Half term meals.

When my children were little, I received national assistance, due to family breakdown, and I managed, because as a family, my parents were careful managers, and I had been taught to be sensible with money. A magazine was a luxury, the odd dance, and pictures a treat. My Grandmother who was with us a...

Re: My, how things have changed

It certainly is a change Gwen. I used a vapouriser for my oldest son when he was ill with too frequent bronchitis.

A friend came today for me to sign a leaving card, and I gathered up all my wool for her. End of an era!

Re: A busy time

I haven't made chutney for around three years now June, but what about bramble and apple pie?

Re: Latest knitting projects

Well done June! You are always so busy with crafts.

I have had to give up knitting, sadly, due to what is now thought to be polymyalgia.

Re: All Creatures Great and Small

I don't watch every episode of The Yorkshire Vet, but when I do, I really enjoy it. I can remember one of my sons rolling about the settee with laughter reading the books.

All Creatures Great and Small

I have been watching ACGAS on Channel 5 recently. The original TV series is currently on the Drama channel, and less like a Whitehall Farce than Channel 5's offering. We bought the books years ago when the boys were younger, and I still have them, rather battered and frail, but absolute gems. When T...

Re: TV Licence

My TV licence paperwork arrived yesterday, at last. Have your heard any more June? I have chosen to pay monthly on a direct debit. I think the least "they" could have done was to reinstate the free licence for over seventy fives, after all, there is little on the beeb that is worth watching, althoug...

Re: Large scratch on leather sofa

The renovation cream for my leather sofa arrived a couple of days ago, and I am more than impressed by it. It has concealed the scratch, and not dulled the sheen of the leather. I expect it will need touching up from time to time, but a little went a long way.
