Re: ARRRGH Children please please give me advice!

I know it's frustrating but try not to get too cross with them. So long as you keep things like knives and bleach well out of reach there's not much damage they can do. Cupboard locks are the way to go!

Re: TV licencing bloke calls...

Wandering off-topic, do we have any other technophobes here who eschew the 'benefits' of electronic gadgetry (barring the computer of course...if we are allowed one advanced technology, it has to be that)? I'm a bit of a technophobe compared with most people my age (early 30s). I have an Ipod and a...

Re: Don't forget E-cards are GREAT!

That's a good idea too. The best thing is it takes all the hassle out of it (i.e. I'd better send them one because they sent my one last year) but it also saves on card and supports a worthy cause.

I expect the worst thing about all electricals is when they end up in landfill.

Re: TV licencing bloke calls...

How bad for the environment are TVs? I was just thinking that people with bigger car engines have to pay more road tax so it would be logical for people with bigger or multiple TVs to pay more for their TV licence and yes I know that's not what the TV licence is for but it might put people off ownin...

Re: Don't forget E-cards are GREAT!

We have a thing at work where we just pin one card to everybody on a notice board and put the rest of the money we would have spent on cards in a charity tin - saves a lot of time and we usually make a few quid for a good cause, last year we bought Oxfam cows!

Re: Lost my voice - again

Thank you for the advice. I went back to work today but luckily because of mock exams I had no lessons this afternoon and they let me bring some marking home to do, I'm just having a break. Think I'm on the mend but will def look out for Niaouli and give it a go :icon_smile:

Re: TV licencing bloke calls...

When I was at uni, I lived in halls of residence for a year and we were told we had to have our own TV liscence but we did share bathrooms and kitchens. I didn't have a TV at the time so it didn't really matter! After that I shared a house with 3 friends, we only had one TV in the lounge so we just ...

Re: Don't forget E-cards are GREAT!

Wish I'd sent e-cards, I had a right debacle with xmas cards this year: When we moved house, I found loads of old, unused xmas cards which I saved to send this year. I also printed out wedding gift thank you cards which I intended to send with the xmas cards to save on postage. Unfotunately, when I ...

Re: TV licencing bloke calls...

That sounds like a money-making scheme to me! How is that different from a family having TVs in different rooms? When we moved into our house there was an aerial in every single room except the bathroom - it made me wonder if the previous inhabitants every spoke to one another! I can beat that, I'v...

Re: Little things that really annoy you!

I don't mind being the washing up fairy in this ménage, but why do those quite happy to believe in me when the cupboards refill with clean crockery get so damn exercised when I ask them to neatly pile the dirty ones next to the sink rather than in it? My husband is our washing up fairy so no compla...
