Re: How do you like your coffee

Black and fairly strong. I have cut way back on my coffee lately. About 4-5 times a year I put in sugar and cinnamon and whipped cream and a bit of chocolate, maybe. It's like a dessert to me when I have it that way :-D

Re: My Garden Office

What I've found is that it releases a room in the house. For a couple of hundred quid, your house has another room - a room with a view at that ! It doesn't need to be big, for most of us an Office is a desk, chair, cupboard and a few shelves. Richard As far as books and papers, Richard, how's the ...

Re: Bargains vs. Saving.

The shirts are top quality, 100% cotton, as I have said. If I had had these one's tailored in this country, then I would guarantee you would pay over £100 for. I will order all my decent clothes from them. They also do jeans, and are expanding into womes clothes. Yes, I did see a woman's blouse the...
