Re: Letting Agent advice please

I agree, citizens advice is probably the best way to go although they have been increasingly difficult to get hold of when you need them in recent years. I can completely empathise with you Mrs F, letting agents are, in my experience, never available when you need them. (and that is the most polite ...

Re: Could You Supply Raw Materials to Lush?

I like the idea of lush but when you look at the ingredients they're as full of chemicals as any other main stream brand. The only difference seems to be that they have some natural ingredients as well. Thats not quite true, where possible they will use no synthetics at all and where necessary they...

Re: Could You Supply Raw Materials to Lush?

I worked in a lush for about 4 years and loved it. Everything I owned smelt like lush so I dare say I wouldn't have been very popular with some of you! :lol: I can't say if this is the case now as the product range has changed hugely since I last worked there but in my time there the only synthetic ...

Re: Deterring Flies

I'll definitely be trying some of those! We have a stream running right by our house and get loads of flies in the summer. And GIANT mossies ( I mean really huge!) will those remedies work on mossies too?

Re: Help needed with life - long post

OK, sorry to cause offense. You asked for help, advice, and I gave what I thought was advice. I think that what you said was more 'opinion' rather than 'advice' and it was unsurprising that Rosey and Chrissy reacted to it in that fashion. I'd be surprised if anyone read your post and didn't feel th...

Re: Lemon curd

Hmmmm that lemon curd does indeed look delish! Was thinking, would it work ok just using the lemon juice and not the rind? Could I use the rind for a lovely limoncello and the juice for fabby lemon curd? :iconbiggrin: Let me know what you think ladies! Would make great christmas pressies! :mrgreen:
