Re: Caffeine withdrawal symptoms

Well, i'm pleased to report that the headaches have eased up, its taken about 10 days. I was only drinking about 5 cups of tea a day before so i was surprised how much stopping affected me. I'm still having 1 coffee a day but i'm going to stop that next week. I feel more wide awake now, having felt ...

Caffeine withdrawal symptoms

I've stopped drinking 'normal' tea and have switched to de-caff. I'd heard that there can be withdrawal symptoms, but I never expected the headaches to be so terrible. Is this normal and how long does it last??? I still have a coffee at 11am every day, and this makes the pain disappear completely, s...

Re: I need advice with my bread making

Thanks Graham, since I've gone back to hand kneading the difference in my bread is incredible. I think i'd got lax with the kenwood dough hook and assumed the dough had been sufficiently kneaded without really checking. I'm going to do a bake today, so i'll go back to bacics and leave out the ingred...

Re: I need advice with my bread making

I baked a white loaf the other day and replaced about half the water with milk. It definitely made the bread softer, but still relatively heavy compared to shop bought stuff. Don't know how this would effect wholemeal though... That's quite intresting....I used to use milk, but found that water mad...

Re: The dangers of returning to the real world......

On the Friday morning of our trip I had to take our very poorly 8 year old daughter from Cleeve House in Seend Cleeve to see the doctor in Chipenham as I thought she had tonsilitis. We'd spent the night in Seend Cleeve as my step daughter was married there the previous day. Whilst driving through al...

Re: Travel sickness remedies for my dog

We have just returned from our trip. We ended up going to the vet and using Sedalin gel. It worked brilliantly with only a tiny dose and our pup perked up very quickly afterwards. I was chatting to a friend whilst away who works for a vet. She said that border collies tend to suffer travel sickness,...

Re: I need advice with my bread making

Potter's Farm, bread should contain nothing but flour, water, salt and yeast (or natural leaven starter or bit of previous dough). All other ingredients are not essential to make a normal 'light' loaf. If you can let us know your precise recipe and method it will be easier to point you in the right...

Re: The dangers of returning to the real world......

Ha ha ha, you've all made me chuckle. We actually used to live a couple of miles from Leigh Deli (as the locals call it). I used to work in a lovely 5 acre garden in Leigh Delamare village, and I popped over there on friday for a visit. Its such a beautiful village but the traffic noise was awful fr...

The dangers of returning to the real world......

We moved from Wiltshire, England to Wexford, Ireland a little over a year ago. My husband and I, along with various children, have popped back for weddings, birthdays etc over the course of the year. Last week, we all went back as a family, 2 adults and 3 children. We stayed with friends for 6 night...

Re: How I lived on a pound a day for a year

Have a look at 'Living The Good Life' by Linda Cockburn, found it practical and always gives me a lift when I'm lacking in inspiration.
