Re: worst five things on telly

4. Loose Women I don't like this either. And I love the cat in your avatar, he looks very focused. Yes, 'focused' is a very good description of the cat. When I first joined the forum someone else described her as 'splendidly grumpy' - which is even more accurate :lol: Glad to find a fellow-loather ...

Re: Clun Greenman Festival

Looks like it's 3 quid to get into the craft bit (according to the Monday page of the programme section of the website). Am hoping to go. Will be my first time - even though I've lived in Shropshire for 20 years now. Oh the shame :oops: (I mean I'm ashamed at not having gone to the festival before, ...

Re: Downshifting

Hi LGL I've done exactly what you're thinking about doing. I took the whole of the summer of 2008 off work (unpaid) and then went back to work part-time. I've been very lucky to be able to do this and it's fan-blinkin'-tastic. There's a number of people (mainly work colleagues) who simply don't unde...

I've been having a really grotty week. But your reply (and your response to the post about exciting ethnic teas) have had me laughing out loud. Have you been sleeping in the knife drawer again? :lol:

Re: Menopause!

I think I'm starting on the hectic hormones trail too. I'm 48 and my periods are completely irregular (less than 2 weeks apart sometimes). I'm very much looking forward to starting skipping them I can tell you, that can't come soon enough! I'm a bit spotty too and as for the brain fog ... er what wa...

Re: Beetroot woe

Many thanks all for your speedy and helpful replies. Ah, I should've remembered that carrots don't like fertile soil! Years ago I had an allotement and used 6X on it, great for some things but I ended up with lots and lots of splindly little carrots (each carrot seemed to have split into six). This ...

Re: ..stop cats using my lawn for a toilet???

Can I put a vote in for the water pistol idea? I used to live opposite a row of OAP bungalows. The OAP's were keen on feeding birds and my cats were keen on eating them (the birds not the OAPS). Each of the four old ladies in the bungalows got a water pistol and used to fire at will at my cats - cat...

In both cases the leaves looked fine but nothing happened below - just tiny. tiny carrots and beetroot so skinny as...
