Re: Liver Biopsy.

Glad this bits over, at least. Hope the results are what you would wish.

Re: Now this is strange!

Thank goodness you got it treated in time. Hope it soon calms down, sounds so painful.

Hello and welcome - your english is great! With four young children, I don't know how you find the time to grow tomatoes as well!

Re: 101 uses for clothes pegs

Moving swiftly on from the nipple clamps.... My mum uses a clothes peg at the top of her seat belt to stop it pulling tight over her front and hence creasing up her outfit! Pleading with her that this might impair the operation of the seatbelt in an accident has been in vain. How can a woman so conc...

Re: Pot and food workshop in the Cotswolds

Wish I could - but I am giving a feltmaking workshop that weekend, down the road in Nolton. Sounds like a great event, I wish you the best of luck.

Re: Men and Money!!!

I wonder if it has something to do with what you see your parents do - rather than whether you are male or female? I grew up watching my mum and dad sort their weekly income into jars for bills, savings etc. I therefore learned that if you want something, you save up for it. My husband grew up with ...

The kitty snipper has reduced me and my family to hoots of laughter. Please could you adapt it to do away with the fox who keeps letting himself in through the catflap? He eats the cats food, and started going up the stairs the other morning....

Re: Just a thought about sport...

The olympics has taken me by surprise. I can quite understand the comments about the relevance of many of the sports, and I have reservations about the cost. As a resident of Stratford, I also have reservations about the usefulness of a darned great shopping centre that came as part of the package, ...

Re: Views on Fostering

I too would have concerns for your children, especially the youngest - not just in terms of possibly having difficulty with foster children, but also because, in my experience, my teenager needs me every bit as much now as he did when he was younger. His needs are different now but he still needs a ...

I was assuming it was too late to replant after my salad veg were eaten by slugs and snails - but do you think it is worth replanting anything? And if so, what? The only thing I have replanted is salad bowl lettuce... re: having a homing instinct - didn't someone recently do an experiement with snai...

Re: Potato Juice

I have seen frozen mashed potatoes in the shops, though I have never eaten them - could you cook, mash and freeze at home, or would that process require lots of unwanted additives? I freeze dishes with potato topping successfully, so it might work. Any large quantity would take up a lot of freezer s...
