Have you seen this?

I don't use carrier bags wherever possible and I've been buying jute bags to give out in the shop for my products. Having seen this I'm going to have a go at making morsbags, which I can customise for my shop.
I think they're great

Re: Animal Affiliation

I'm a cat too. Bone-idle, generally, with bursts of hyperactivity. Like being warm, cuddled and fed well. Basically a fat cat (without the pecuniary advantages).

Have you still got some of this years small onions? You could maybe try keeping a few of the smallest and planting them out again next year - your own sets!

Me, again. Swifts have now increased to four at teatime. We've still got a few midges too! What's going on?

Re: Onion assistance and seriously stinky comfry fertilizer!

I put this on another thread re onions. I saw it on the telly so, of course, it must be true. Sets have already been growing for several months then their growth is halted ready to kick off again when you plant them. Onions from seed take much longer to mature because they've not had the head start....

Re: Deliveries - aaargh

Sorry about your bad delivery day. I empathise totally. Up here, we have the added problem of being charged exorbitant prices (at least £10 extra, usually more), even when Royal Mail is used, because apparently the Highlands fell off the top and we are not part of mainland UK! I've just bought a new...

Re: Last swallows of Summer?

Just been out for a fag and seen a lone swift. Don't know if it's been left behind or if the unusually good weather we've had up here has confused it, but it looked well enough flitting about.

Re: I don't deserve this

The people who believe all this B/S deserve all they get! Unfortunately it affects all the rest of us. I think I was born allergic to advertising. I still refuse to buy Pringle's because their stupid, infantilising slogan from donkeys years back, drives me wild. And their are so many others! I reall...

Re: Not really parenting, more health: fibre

I too hope it's nothing nasty like diverticulitis etc. The general advice however is always consisitent. Any change in bowel habits should be investigated. So get cracking!!!!

Re: can one restore real lino?

Hi Mrs F Great news about the floor - I love real lino. Did a quick google - couldn't find much, but a few things stood out. 1) Has the lino been waxed (older housewives loved waxing their floors :pale: ) - you'll have to get all that off before you restore them - but you may find that once the wax ...

Re: school eco-club ideas

Hi applegirl and welcome Sounds like a brilliant idea. I think it would be really good to base all your activities around the reduce, re-use recycle theme. It stuns me how many adults just don't get it at all - they seem to think that because they send stuff for recycling they're doing their bit, no...

Hi
Sorry, this is completely off subject, but you've just given me a lovely blast from the past. Since I saw your thread I've been humming Jimmy Blue by the Ozark Mountain Daredevils.
So thankyou and welcome!
