Re: Forest Schools ! woohoo

Thanks, will look into it.

With the Polytunnel too, so much to do....

Re: New school polytunnel

Just found the seed stash, 18 packets of Moneymaker tomatoes. Anyone want toms ? think they are 2015, also 12 packets of mixed salad leaves. Happy to send you 2-3 packets in exchange for something interesting, own seed or leftover shop stuff, that the kids would like. Thinking squashes, scented clim...

Re: The line between ..

Pre-used coffin, I'm loving it, and she probly would too. Skip would be cheaper, pile her up in the middle of all her 'stuff', I know she would laugh at the idea and be happy resting in amongst it all. [is it a naughty suggestion ?!]

Keep trying to chuck stuff out, or take it to charity shop, sometimes intervened by partner, who is always moaning about he amount of stuff I hoard...... Yes it is a generational thing, brother and I frequently tell mum we will...

I havent brought groceries or anything from the 'Big 4' for several years now, deliberately for ethical reasons.

Ethical Banking, again

So I am fed up with Cooperative Bank, they are as bad as the rest ! I am looking around at other banking options, I need a simple current account, online, cashpoint, direct debits etc. A savings account too, for when I have some spare cash, maybe even earn some interest. Any recommendations ? I conf...
