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.

Re: Malvern show

Maybe you are growing the wrong kind of mint in your garden? Mine tastes fine... A little different from the stuff I buy, but better rather than worse. To me, anyway.

Water, water everywhere...

I don't know what the met office thinks a "light" shower is - but my understanding is a bit different. A solid wall of water outside the window just as it was getting to going home time! Roads close to being flooded (a bit more than large puddles). Keep fingers crossed, I'm going to Dundee tomorrow ...
