Thanks for reminding me - must get some lemon balm in the garden. Teawise, I only have mint so far,

Re: Pet gripes

One Christmassy pet gripe - no turkeys for singles households. Last year I thought I'd get myself one of those turkey breast steaks - but no, they don't seem to sell them for Christmas. (Must admit I didn't look very hard, only in Lidl's...) I've got plenty of sprouts already, and probably won't be ...

It's going to be breezy according to the forecast today. Not so yet - but it is dustbin collection day
It always seems to be bin day when it's windy like that - it was here yesterday, too... And then I spend hours picking litter from the garden. Well, I will when I can next see my garden!

Re: A self sufficient Christmas?

Nothing, really... Sigh. Well, I still have one Brussels sprouts plant in the garden - don't know whether that'll survive until Christmas, though.

Re: Plastic Free July

I buy my coffee (and some tea) from a very old and wonderful shop in Dundee, where they'll re-fill their own bags when you bring them back. So not 100% waste free, but I can use a bag at least 10 times rather than once!

Re: Black Friday

Wouldn't know where to keep them! :mrgreen: A friend of mine has a farm and loads of space. Her husband's hobby is buying stuff at roups and auctions... I usually just ask her ...

Re: Black Friday

I'll try to take the day off work next year - forgot all about it this time. Traffic was even worse than on a normal Friday afternoon in Aberdeen - made the bus very late, and I almost missed my connection... Absolutely can't seen the attraction of shoving and fighting to be able to say you've got a...

I was so shocked, I decided to work from home. Brrrr, not going out in that.
Lucky you that you can do that. I really don't like snow either - not when I have to leave the house!
