Re: Hello I'm back!

I never ever forgot about you! Just got too busy with Uni to spend much time online. And I have to admit that I was heartbroken when my other half's ex boss effectively stole my Self Sufficient Ish Bible - she borrowed it then when he left the company she severed all ties with us (we used to be quit...

Re: OMG! Red Dwarf crochet!!!

I am totally in awe of your creative skills as usual Mrs Flibble! I've really missed seeing your creations. I should get myself back on Craftster too!

I bought a couple of books on amigurumi but have yet to master it.

Hello I'm back!

Hello all who remember me from last year! I disappeared from the radar because I started University last October as a mature student and my timetable is really really full (3.5 days a week - total contact time of 28 hours) with a lot of work to do at home too! My little one is now 2 yrs old and love...

Re: *gloat*

We got 2lb of blackberries from a hedgerow the other week. They're in the freezer now, waiting for me to borrow the preserving pan from mum to make lots of yummy jam :mrgreen:

Re: Should I shut the hens up?

We left the pop hole open last night & two girls chose to sleep outside - Clarabell behind the wheely bin & Chuck under the tin bath! I was really worried about them though and got up at 5.30am to check they were ok. They were fine and didn't even feel cold. Today we're going away to Shambala festiv...

Re: July Photo Competition - VOTING OVER!!

I only just managed to see the photo - last night it wasn't downloading. I think the winner is more than worthy, such a beautiful shot and very natural.

Re: We finally got a milk man.

Just placed my first order online for 3 pints of organic whole milk & a pack of organic cheese to be delivered next Tuesday (when we get back from Shambala festival!). If all goes well then I'll continue to place orders online :mrgreen:

Re: nice washing tablets!

I've used the Simply washing tablets but they are really spensive! I get them from S@insburys if I'm in there & they are on offer (pretty infrequently then as we just realised we'd not been to S@insburys for 6 weeks now!). They didn't cause my OH's skin any probs but then I only ever use one tablet ...

Re: Hi from Sheffield

Hi Howie Welcome aboard! I used to live on the outskirts of Sheffield and still have links with the area. We haven't shopped at T3sc0 for about 3 years now, @sd@ for at least a year and we barely use supermarkets and try to make sure its Co-Op when we do. We cloth nappy too, I just love seeing the w...

Re: Cluckin' butchers!

Yes Ina you're right about Organic standards. Before we got our own hens we only bought Woodland free range eggs from S@insburys, where hens are able to forage & shelter under trees.
