Re: Right Said Flo

Makes you feel oh so rich! :mrgreen:

Or poor - if you'd spent money you didn't have in the first place...

Re: Right Said Flo

Well - I wouldn't even have been tempted to buy it - never had that kind of money! But if I had seen it for a tenner in a charity shop, I'm sure I would have grabbed it, just for fun.

Re: Right Said Flo

Offloading it to the charity shop seems to be cheating somehow.:lol: Yeah, I know... Anyway, it's there now, so you might as well use it. I'm sure you won't buy any more of it! I remember knitting all those acrylic jumpers when I was a teenager. Awful stuff. Always stank when you'd been out in it.

Re: Right Said Flo

The gal is vegan and I hate knitting with synthetic yarn so she may get something sewn. I do hope your daughter is aware that all that synthetic stuff she wears ends up as micro plastics in the sea and ultimately in the food chain? Do we really want that? The lab where I work also looks at micro pl...

Re: Malvern show

I've no idea how they get from the collecting points to the recycling plant. I think the main problem with collecting points is that somebody has to have the space and time to deal with it.

Re: Malvern show

Pre-portioned, plastic sachets are taking up more and more shelf space in the supermarket. Non-recyclable plastic, I think. They can be recycled, but so far not many places do it. I am collecting my sachets now (cat refuses to eat out of the same tin more than once, so it has to be sachets), and al...

Re: What are you harvesting now?

Bloody hell... A packet of seeds would go in a letter - and as far as I know, the Royal Mail doesn't charge extra wherever the letter goes! I remember when any Aberdeen postcode would be charged extra... Aberdeen, oil capital of the world (allegedly), but so remote that transport costs double??? I d...

Re: What are you harvesting now?

I'd be interested in growing any radishes... I sowed some quite early, protected, but only about half a dozen germinated. I let them grow to flowering, and so at least I got to eat some seedpods. They can be almost nicer than the radishes themselves!

Oh, get yourself well, ina. Trouble is, you could do with a hot toddy about now!
I make that with rum. And I do have that in the house... A drop of rum in your tea is always nice in the cold half of the year.

Re: cleaning up

Oh, I'm on the way up north, too, if you are looking for somewhere to stop and tidy a garden... Am in bed with the flu at the moment, though. And I've no whisky in the house - argh!

Re: How do you consume your blackberries?

I'm "lucky" in a way that I have to make/buy hardly any presents. Few family get calendars (easy to post), even fewer friends mostly get books. Most would rather ignore Christmas (and all that present stress) anyway. So if I make that kind of infusion, I basically "have to" drink it all myself. But ...
