Re: Banana Cake help pls

I only ever make a banana loaf if I have bananas that look like they should have been thrown away a day or two before, I'm talking completely black on the outside and mushy in the middle. That way the mix is plenty wet enough. Makes the best banana muffins too :thumbright: hhhmmmm with a sprinkle of...

overnight apples

I'm quickly beginning to love my rayburn! I've just discovered that if I finely slice an apple, spread it out on a baking sheet and leave it in the low oven overnight I get perfect dried apple bits to add to my home made granola! :cheers: Now.... what else can I dry..............(starts opening cupb...

Re: The oil cleansing method - cheap, eco and rather darned good

Thanks Green aura!! You described the manky feeling perfectly! I was really upset it didn't seem to work, will definitely try vinegar. My mum always says how her gran used to rinse with cider vinegar so that makes perfect sense! Just got to go and buy some vinegar now and will let you know how I get...

Re: The oil cleansing method - cheap, eco and rather darned good

Hmmm, this looks very interesting, I may well try it. I use ultra bland from lush at the mo, its a really nice oily, beeswaxy cleanser so I can see that this might be similar (and cheaper!). As for no 'poo, I only managed that when I had a shaved head! Ahhh life was easier then, quicker in the showe...

Re: Moving on Sat!!! Need Furniture!

Thanks for all the advice and good wishes folks, much appreciated! Well we're in! I'm slowly working out the rayburn and we're getting bits and pices of furniture as and when we can from ebay. We're still fridgeless which actually isn't the end of the world, what's most annoying is the lack of comfy...

Re: Insect bites

I had four horrific mosquito bites on my shoulder a few weeks back, they were really swollen and horrible, I just put loads of lavender oil on and was quite pleased that they seemed to heal up sooner than usual and didn't leave any scarring as I have had before. Also I was really strict with myself ...

scary bug!

My Oh and I found this on the outside of the patio doors last night and had a good ten minutes of panic that it was some alien invader, evil, deadly insect. Then after extensive internet research it turns out its not. Apparantly its a scorpion fly and the bit that looks like a hideousliy poisonous s...

Well the build work is likely to go on for a few years, so why don't you drop me a note when you feel you would be able to join us... being very 'ish' orientated we aren't a proper small holding or anything but there is always something to be done here. Will definitely do that Ann! Would love to co...

Re: wwoof-ish

Great idea Ann, we'd have been there with bells on if everything hadn't gone t*ts up for us. Unfortunately we'll just be moving into our new house around then and desperately job hunting.

Good luck with it all though and if you need any help with anything else in future let me know!
