Re: "Can we talk" about

I believe that everyone should be entitled to have their beliefs without fear of being persecuted or ridiculed. One should not belittle someone else's beliefs just because they do not believe the same thing. One should believe whatever helps them through their life journey. In my mind there is no r...

Re: "Can we talk" about

How do we know which science is right? A lot of scientific research is sponsored by industry making it biased. I read an article about some scientific research by the dairy industry which proved the benefits of milk. They took two groups of poor malnourished children, gave one lot a pint of milk a d...

Re: nappy free babys !

I love the idea but don't think it is for me. When it's cold and baby is wearing several layers it's not so easy, I have carpets and don't have the time to run round with a potty all day. My little girl is in cloth nappies and that works for us. I think for an only/first child or in a warm climate i...

Re: Switching to Co-op Bank, anyone else switched ?

Hi I switched to the Co-op a few years ago and they gave me a free case of wine for joining them :iconbiggrin: I seem to recall promises of the swap being easy and all done for me but it wasn't that smooth. It is a bit staggered changing one thing at a time, cancelling DDs etc. I am quite happy with...

Re: Breast feeding, socially unacceptable or not?

I fed my baby girl on a tethered balloon flight, when we disembarked another passenger commented 'Ahhh, she slept right through.' It is hard to notice when babies are tiny and mums discrete. However now she is nearly 10months she starts feeding then stops to see what her brother is doing/what that n...

Re: coriander

I have seen frozen coriander for sale and I am sure my mum freezes it. I think she just froze it is freezer bags. You could try chopping, then freezing on a tray, then bagging it so it's not lumpy. It may not be cosmetically perfect for garnishes but will be fine for flavour in cooking.

Re: I need advice with my bread making

Nothing wrong with breadmakers, the electric usage for cooking is less than using the oven Sorry, not true if you bake 3 loaves at a time in your oven. :iconbiggrin: I worked out the electricity comparison some time ago and the oven won hands down ... and that was with a crap old gas oven. My spank...

Re: I need advice with my bread making

Nothing wrong with breadmakers, the electric usage for cooking is less than using the oven and I love waking up to the smell of fresh bread in the morning :)

Re: Breast feeding, socially unacceptable or not?

disappointed to say that I have not been able to openly breastfeed in public having been encouraged by my husband and friends to drape a blanket over my shoulder to hide myself. I didn't like it, I wanted to look at my baby's face. Breast fed in the back seat of the car and felt very self concious ...

Re: Recycling Kids Wellies

My youngest son was very upset that his old tatty too small wellies had to go so they are now on the kitchen windowsill with flowers growing in them.

Could you freecycle them?

Re: how long should/did you breastfeed for?

I have found doctors are not pro breastfeeding and don't see it as the norm. I broke my foot when my daughter was 8 weeks old and was in A&E with her on my lap. When I saw the doctor he offered me some strong painkillers as it was very painfull - I told him I was breastfeeding then he said I couldn'...
