Re: 'Cry it out ' sleep training causes brain damage

Sorry don't have time to check out your links but have seen this kind of research/opinion before. I think sleep training is not a very nice way to go about raising your child but if that is the only thing you do 'wrong' the child will be fine. However if your parenting if poor, stressful for the chi...

Re: Home Schooling

Hi Narmour I have four children, two finished state school and two little ones. I don't have any shocking stories from the older ones education but I have been very disappointed with the state education. My eldest went the 'best' local state school - the local grammar which seemed to me to be a saus...

Re: weight loss 2013

Hello I lurk mostly! Don't spend much time on the net. I saw the Horizon programme with the 5:2 fast. I thought it had to be two consecutive days. I worry about feeling light headed and rubbish when I have small people to run round after so haven't tried it. Seeing this thread inspired me to weigh m...

Re: Living Christmas Tree

Hi Thanks for the replies. I am going to keep it in the coldest room close to the window so hopefully that won't bake it too much. I would like to bring it each year for Xmas - it seems a nicer idea than getting the plastic one out the loft. I think I will treat it to a new pot in the new year. I sh...

Living Christmas Tree

Hi I was given a little potted Xmas tree two years ago which has lived and grown happily in the back garden since (still in a pot). I would like to bring it inside for December but don't want to kill it with the sudden shock of centrally heated dry air. Any advice or experiences to share please. Juz...

Great article. I didn't think brambles could be so useful - added to my favourites.

Re: I love a bargain,what did you buy today??

Last week I bought two large 12 packs of crisps - down from £4.59 to 49p. What I didn't realise was that they were on a multisave at two for £5 so the shop deducted the multisave from my bill (-£4.18). So I got the crisps free and £3.20 off the rest of my shopping! I also picked up a bargain from th...

Re: Grape harvest

Last year my neighbour let me have the grapes from her vine which I made into grape jelly. I was hoping to get them again this year but it seems to be a poor harvest this time :( . I processed them by first washing then I put about 1cm of water in the bottom of huge pan, put it on the heat and addin...

Thanks for the replies, I am glad that they will change colour, green is my least favourite.

Peppers questions

Hi all I planted some pepper seeds from a pack of mixed colours. Seven plants have survived the slugs and children and are now fruiting. Most of the plants have dark green peppers (one is light green) - will they stay green or will they change colour as they ripen? How many peppers should grow per p...

Re: What to do with a field?

How about woodland burial ground? These seem to be growing in popularity. Sorry I don't have a clue how to go about it but I thought I would throw the idea in along with the others.
