Re: When it becomes available, will you have the jab?

I am also not sure about having the jab when it becomesa available. Being asthmatic, suffering from atrial fibrillation and living alone at over 80, I would be nervous of side effects and not coping on my own. I am still isolating while I wait for further surgery so will probly carry on down that ro...

Re: No alternative

Not a pleasant op Gwen but it will make such a difference to your life when healing is complete. My husband had both his knees done and eventually walked such a lot with our dogs with no pain. As you say , no alternative so hopefully the wait won't be too long x

Re: Half term meals.

The sad thing is that if you showed some people a turnip or a swede they would have no idea what they are. Cheaper cuts of meat and root veg do take longer to cook but a lot can be cooked in one pan and then the excess frozen. I remember watching a TV program about how much food waste there is, from...

Re: Half term meals.

I just wish that cookery lessons were still given in schools. People have lost the art of making a hearty meal for a family. In my early day as a mum nothing was thrown away. We had no benefits then so had to make meals from what we had, and did. Hearty soups from mixed veg or small amounts of meat ...

Re: Strictly Come Dancing back

I'm looking forward to next week when the dancing starts. I don't have any idea yet who I think will be good . It usually takes me a couple of weeks to start developing an opinion which usually turns our wrong.

Re: Sun Gold Tomamtoes

I second this Michael. My friend gave me 2 little plants that she had grown and they are a lovely little tomato. Will grow again next year.

Re: Get your flu jab now!

I had my flu jab over a week ago so at least I should be OK there. Did have a very sore arm after but my sister didn't so not the vaccine .

This is my latest way of keeping busy. Had so much wool given to me when I came out of hospital that I have to now find a way to use it, other than large items that my fingers won't let me do. For some reason when you click on the picture it comes up very big.

A busy time

Now is a time when we are busy with jam and chutney making. I have already made red tomato chutney. Have gathered the last of the green ones to make more and have to decide what to do with a large bag of sharp apples that have been given to me. Years ago I made apple and ginger jam which was lovely ...

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, althou...
