The charity shop haggle sounds like a great idea!! I want to start making patchwork things - I bought a lovely fairtrade skirt that is patchwork and it's given me the bug. That said, I haven't even made anything in patchwork but will certainly give it a shot. I've also got a pattern for making my ow...

There are still properties out here that are affordable - in the local paper today it said that Aberdeenshire and Moray are the cheapest places in the UK to buy property.

In fact we didn't have most of our belongings until the delivery lorries arrived on Wednesday last week - 4 weeks after I moved in with the two boys.

We might - I'm not sure yet. DP isn't up here with me yet and I've got enough to do with the chooks, unpacking, kids ...

Hi again Ina... and hi Millymollymandy :lol: Thanks for the welcome - I keep light and buff sussex chooks at the moment.

I always carry a bag or three with me anyway - I hate using carrier bags for all the obvious reasons. Anyw...
