Re: Self sufficientish Toilet Paper

No I don't mind Susie :hugish: We use a mixture of the fluffy stuff and bum wipes which are basically just cut up towels that I bias taped lovingly :lol: to stop the towels fraying.

A natural deodorant that really works.

I have been experimenting over the past three or so years with many products which are as close to nature as possible, but deodorant has always been one of those that I have been disappointed by until now.......drum roll. I came across this out in blogland and as I already had all the ingredients I ...

Re: Fastest ever ...

Well I'm not into home brew but as I have a packet of Yeast nutrient I picked up for 50p and a cupboard FULL of fruit teas, all I need is the B1 tablets and I think I will give this a go, especially as alcohol is getting to the point where it's just out of our price bracket now ( I know that's a laz...

Re: Month One

I have no self imposed rules for this year, as I tend to find myself impelled to break them once set. I have the usual guidelines which seem to be the same as last year - oops. :oops: Loose some weight - moderate success, it's generally heading in the right direction - ish :icon_smile: Get my garden...

Re: Weight loss group 2012

Thanks for the tips Marmalady, the main problem was that I couldn't get out to go shopping so I was using things that I already had available to me. I'm also trying to tighten the financial belt too, so was determined to use things I already had rather than go and buy more. I find so often that tryi...

Re: Weight loss group 2012

I had a nice little routine going and then I get bronchitis :pale: So for the last two weeks I haven't been walking or done my new Wii fit bigest looser game and have been shovelling sugary medicines down my neck like there is no tomorrow. Add to that the warming c...

Re: Chickens of Fire

:lol: :lol: :lol: I was just thinking rather foolishly that even chickens could look quite graceful with the right music but then they had that big fat brown chicken running straight at the camera. I think she was even listed in the credits as Peggy :iconbiggrin:

Re: what's going on

Well I almost cursed out loud last night walking through a certain supermarket which begins with 'S' and ends in 'buries' on my way to clock in for another exciting shift :shock: They seem to have now replaced most of their sensible clothing with bikinis and summer school dresses. Just unbelievable!...
