Re: Black Friday

You mean you don't keep a spare kettle and washing machine in case one breaks Ina :lol: Know exactly what you mean though. 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!

Re: Self sufficientish in 2019

This year though, Lidl for some inane reason decided that their toilet roll tubes needed glazing on the inside, which made them waterproof and unable to quickly rot. I haven't noticed that yet - maybe I buy a different sort? I always go for Lidl's cheapest... Or they sell a different kind in Irelan...

Re: Malvern show

Used to harvest masses of the stuff for my goats when I had them... Have to try that next year. I have peppermint and sage from the garden. I find it strange that in this country people don't know the use of herbal teas that we grew up with. A cold, or sore throat? Sage. Fever? Lime flower. High blo...

Re: Does anyone NOT have a television?

That's not exactly cheap. I don't like watching films at all these days. They all seem to have very loud "back ground" music that makes it impossible for me to enjoy what I am watching. Cinemas are out altogether - even with industrial strength ear defenders they are too loud.
