Re: Unusual Finds!

I wish i had the fortitude to brick a find like that up, I'm afraid I'd have been takings photos and telling everyone, which is absolutely the wrong thing to do, but I'm just so nosey and fascinated by things

Re: Old brewing recipes

I love old recipes, I haven't brewed anything for over a years now as I still have over 200 bottles of various bizarre plonk I made 2-3 years ago, if it didn't move quick enough, I fermented it!

Love the idea of the witches brew being a Lancashire lass myself, how is it 3 months on?

Re: The dangers of returning to the real world......

I see both ends of the spectrum Home is a dream although we are on a road I tune it out, once in the house/ garden it's like a haven. Then I get to drive into Manchester everyday for work, its like getting slapped in the face every mile further from the house I go. What i do notice is when off work ...

Re: Meeting other ishers

I agree, I've agonised (slight exaggeration) about the lack of people I come into contact with who 'understand' me.
