Re: What size replacement rubber seals for my kilner jars?

I only replace mine when I can't find my old ones! :oops: :lol: I must have done some tidying at some point and as is often the case with tidying can't find a darn thing afterwards! You would think I would have kept them with the jars as usual but I remember thinking, "I know I'll put them ..." but ...

Re: Decorating the town hall

Oh, something we did for a friends fiftieth a few years ago was select some nice photos showing different times in their life and blew them up and put them on the walls. They looked great and it created a nice chatting point for everyone at the party too.

Re: Decorating the town hall

Flowers are always lovely and if it's over the summer maybe some of the guests will have some nice roses or what have you in their gardens? And greenery from the garden can be used to nice effect, ferns, fancy grasses and such like. The hall may have vases, along with tablecloths? If you are anti-cu...

Re: Mouse/Mice

Hello :wave: We've been in this house for two and a half years and there were mice in the garden/ garage when we came and before we realised, they had nested in a rucksack which had to be thrown away as chewed and covered in mouse pee. We moved a lot of the nestable stuff out of the garage and put b...
